The visit was very efficient. Check it was simple at the front desk, I had to sign some disclosures but since everything was completed ahead of time I just had a wait about 3 minutes in the lobby. Dr. Arons sawme immediately with the consultation lasting less than 30 minutes. Very rarely is health care this efficient and thought I would share my experience.

This was my first visit with Dr. Arons, and everything was great. His staff is friendly, and the initial paperwork was minimal. Within five minutes of finishing the paperwork, I was meeting with the nurse. Dr. Arons came in right afterthat. Dr. Arons is very knowledgeable and friendly. He took the time to discuss my various options. Additionally, although I saw him as a general practitioner, he also explained the other medical services offered at his clinic, and I am now considering going to his office for those services as well. Overall, I was very happy with my visit.

Dr. Arons is not only a great listener, but cares about my wellness. What mattered to me was that he was very attentive to my needs, but also considerate enough to state "we want to make sure you get better, hereare the steps we'll take for getting you there." That's the kind of dedication and care that I would hope and expect from my primary care doctor.

I went for a physical was seen right away by a nurse and then by a medical student. Dr. Arons saw me shortly after and was up to speed based on everything discussed. The only hang up was the ~30 minutewait for the blood draw which was kind of frustrating to wait that long but otherwise recommend.

In almost two years, Dr Arons has never felt my glands, looked up my nose (even when the reason for visiting was a sinus infection). The ladies in the reception area are not polite or welcoming. The wait is long andthe actual time with the Doctor is 5 minutes or less. I could never recommend this office or Dr Arons.

I went to Dr. Arons to get an annual physical, and during my visit he suggested a blood screening. He discussed the blood screening as though it was a standard practice, completed as part of the physical, that should be doneevery 2-3 years. Given his casual demeanor and the fact I hadn't gotten blood work in awhile, I assumed it was generally carried out as part of the physical and opted for the screening. A few weeks later, I was received a hefty fee despite my first-rate medical insurance coverage. I don't appreciate doctors who try to take advantage of their patients, and for this reason, I will not be returning.
