I love this doctor. She is honest, informative and courteous. This was my second appointment and both times I felt thather conduct made the (long!!) wait time worth it. My search for an OB/GYN is done.

Dr Arutyunyan was amazing! I felt so comfortable with her and her nurse, everyone in the office was friendly and beyond accommodating. I didn’t feel rushed or brushed off in the least. The doctor and I had a funny chat, exchangingsome common grievances we both share as women and it just made the whole experience so friendly and welcoming. It feels nice to laugh when you’re revealing so much...literally. Would highly recommend!!

She is very nice and friendly, makes you feel like you are her friend rather than a doctor, therefore it is easy to speak about your problem. You don't feel embarrassed.

Dr. Marina is a gem. With my past history of trauma, GYN appointments can be very stressful for me. Yet despite this, Dr. Marina makes each appointment as comfortable and calming and possible. She is very patient with me, is anincredible listener, and I trust she has my best interest at heart. I am grateful to have found a doctor that seems to truly care!

This is the GYN relationship I have been waiting for all of my life! Dr. Arutyunyan is pure kindness mixed with true competence. She listens to my concerns, hears them and does both the expected in terms of diagnosing and treating,but also thinks outside the box for my less commonplace issues. I feel incredibly fortunate to have found her. The staff in the office is just as warm and helpful, too. And here is what I can’t even explain; after listening to everything I have to say and never rushing me, Dr. Arutyunyan is still ALWAYS on time! How can such a miracle occur?! I don’t know. But it always does. I cannot say enough good things about this doctor and her support staff. Go! Just don’t make her late to see me!

Dr. Arutyunyan was incredible! I visited two other OBGYNS in the two weeks prior to meeting her, and neither came close to making me feel as comfortable and as cared after as she did. She is incredibly informed, helpful, and kind.I'm very much looking forward to having her as my OBGYN.

I was pleased with the office at first. Then I was dropped by the doctor, without much explanation on my 10 th week of pregnancy, being high risk. The doctor explained to me that I need to see an MFM andthat they will deliver my baby. MFM do not deliver!!! I found that out the hard way, when my obgyn neglected to explain to me the process. At the appointment with the MFM, I waited 2 hours. Called the office multiple times in frustration to get a referral sent over. After 2 hours I was notified by the MFM, that I would not be seen because my obgyn is no longer leading my pregnancy. I've never felt so neglected and frustrated, in the time of need. I would not recommend this doctor for pregnancy, maybe an annual pap, but not when you need a doctor's guidance in a very important time in your life. I'm so disappointed.

My experience was amazing from start to finish. Candice at the front desk is a delight and helped me through the entire insurance/financial process. The nurse (whose name I unfortunately did not get) was AMAZING with my blood work. It didn’teven hurt! And last but not least, Dr. Arutyunyan was the BEST obgyn I have ever been to. She was so attentive to my needs and asked all the right questions to get to know me. She was extremely thorough and talked me through everything she did. She is FANTASTIC at what she does and made me so comfortable. I had such a pleasant experience!
