He was thorough in his appraisal of the causes of my back (Left side hip) pain, I tend to be more confident in my reviews when I know the doctor better and this was my first time meeting him.

He was very professional and attended to my needs and concerns. It was my first time, and so he took some time to do a quick assessment before considering the best and most convenient treatment for me.

Absolutely fine. Professional, efficient and the Nurse Practictioner was truly interested in listening to my concerns. She set up a facility for an X-ray close to the clinic for a same day appointment before I left the clinic. The young ladiesat the front desk were also pleasant and business-like. Thank you.

What a great experience with Dr. Arora and the whole staff at Access Care. I'm always leery about urgent care centers but this one was amazing. Everyone that I interacted with was professional and extremely friendly. They seemed to actuallycare about me as a patient, not as a number. I arrived a little early for my appt and they got me right in. Dr. Arora spent plenty of time with me and nailed the diagnosis and treatment. I am cured! (ok it wasn't that bad of an issue haha) I will return here whenever I have another medical situation. Highly recommend!

Went in for a toe infection and the doctor on call was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and kind. When I mentioned I had a low pain tolerance, he used freeze spray before draining, asking as we went how I wasdoing. Wait time was only about 20-30 minutes from start to finish. Would definitely recommend!

Dr. Arora and his NP Thiago Gibson- along with all their nurses and staff- are simply the best new urgent care/primary care model of healthcare delivery. Insurance and affordable self-pay for the type of service you get with only out ofnetwork “concierge” type docs. Incredible practice - go if you need a doctor and you’ll see what I mean!

Took me 6+ hours to be seen in the ER, took me 2 minutes to be seen in each of my three visits here. If it's possible for you to avoid the ER and come here instead, do so! Being ableto schedule your appointment online is awesome. The nurses are kind and helpful.

While this was an urgent care appointment that I booked the day of, my copay was low thanks to my insurance; I was admitted pretty quickly, and seen pretty quickly by the staff and provider. It's also, not too far a walk from the metro. :)

I saw an associate for a toothache. She prescribed me a medication for pain that I had just told her I have been taking but it wasn't relieving any pain at all. I also have TMJ which is adding to my tooth/jaw irritation.

I always hated going to the doctor's office, filling out the paperwork, waiting forever in the waiting room, waiting in the exam room, talking to someone who was half-listening...it was awful. This was the opposite of that. Friendly staff,smooth sailing from the waiting room to the exam room, where I was listened to, patched up, and sent on my way feeling 100 times better.

Dr. Arora is, by far, the best doctor I have ever had. Dr. Arora makes it a point to listen to you and answer any questions you may have - even if it isn't related to the original reason for yourappointment. Every question you ask will be answered thoughtfully and thoroughly. More importantly, Dr. Arora takes his time to explain everything he is doing and what steps are needed going forward. Then, a few days later, he'll call to check up on you. There is a reason his reviews are perfect on every site. If you see him, you will not be disappointed.
