Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Aruba is very nice and extremely knowledgeable.
It was a very good visit, he is a great doctor.
The doctor is very nice and very professional, he is a little difficult to understand, but if you listen intently there is no problem.
He was actually very concerned and made me feel like a patient that he really wants to help get to the bottom of my health issues and find out what is causing my illness. Very impressed with him upon our first appointment!
We talked and everything was fine
I was impressed with his professionalism and knowledge. Also his caring that I felt comfortable with the procedure
I was very pleased with the interview. Decided to use him as my GASTRO Physician
He was great and thorough and very professional.
I just love this doctor. My mom went to him once and I really liked him so now I have a need and he's the one I want for me.
Dr. Aruba is very professional and I am pleased with his services. I have been his patient since > 5 yrs and he has always been very helpful and cooperative, and definitely someone I would recommend. The quality that I admire the most about him is his kind and humble nature, and the way he treats you in office. I wish him good luck!
Everyone was professional and very accommodating. Thank you Ms. Katherine.o
Answered my questions. Had my previous medical records on hand. Professional.
Very competent, knowledgeable. Experienced. Always busy, cannot get an appointment before 3 weeks (min), this is my experience.
The doctor is nice and qualified, the staff was good, the wait was appropriate.
Today was the first and only appointment over many years in which I was called, weighed, and seen by this doctor promptly, so I appreciate the change. Promptness is what my husband and I have always experienced at our primary care doctor's office, so I have high expectations. I look at promptness by a doctor and his office staff as a measuring stick of their respect for me and my time. I like Dr. U. and would love to see his office continue to run efficiently. I hope my return visit in three months is as convenient.
Very pleasant Doctor explained everything very well.
Very pleasant personality
His office is always packed no matter when I go. The wait was longer than necessary, but still better than most I have endured previously here. I think that this is a yearly colonoscopy that I just do not enjoy, so if I could count on his getting me in and out in a more timely manner, I would have no complaints.
My first visit, very nice doctor. We all come from different cultures so that's why many of the comments others posted see him as not nice, but it's not that. He is a serious, kind man.
So far so good he seems very nice and very concerned about my well being. This was my first appointment but I'm very satisfied so far
Awful and would never recommend. Between the wait time and his awful non friendly bedside!
This MD was great, he was kind, professional, and very friendly.
Good. Very knowledgeable.
He was competent, helpful, caring, and informative.
very satisfactory visit and treatment
Knowledgeable, patient, attentive, compassionate, and helpful.
I was happy with the amount of information he gave me. Knows his stuff!!
I have been seeing Dr. Ugbarugba for yrs and I love the way he takes time with his patients and make sure you understand everything concerning your health he's the best.
I look forward to my doctor appointments to see Dr. Ugbarugba (Dr. Aruba). He is so friendly and sits down and really talks to you, like you matter. He is wonderful. My only complaint is that I did so well on my colonoscopy that I don't have to see him for another 3 years! :) Please don't hesitate at all to make an appt with this doctor. You won't be sorry.
I am very happy that I was referred to Dr. Ugbarugba (Dr. Aruba). This doctor is so friendly, listens to you and answers any question you have. I had a colonoscopy performed by Dr. Urbarugba. He made me feel at ease and it went so well. He was right there when I woke up from the procedure and he let me know how everything went. A very positive experience. I recommend him 100%.
The staff was very nice, professional and caring. The Dr. Was very informative and nice.
Very professional, experienced. easy to talk to . Took two weeks to see the doctor for first appointment and almost 5 weeks for the procedure. Very friendly stall and nice office location.
He is quite professional but not friendly with patients.he looks angry, not try to satisfy.
I have never been so miss treated in my life. My first visit the doctor barely listen to my pass history and right away requested expensivetesting with out hearing all of my symptoms. He didn't want to provide a medication that could help ease my pain for my ongoing chronic stomach disease. After my insurance wouldn't cover one of the scripts I tried getting it resolved with the nurses. It took them a weeks after i called and the pharmacy sent in serval request to authorize a gernic. The nurses are not passionate and are very rude on the phone. i am getting my results and leaving them asap. i need a doctor who listens and cares not one who sees me as dollar signs!!
He is very kind and knowledgeable, he helped me and saved my life. After 18 months of misdiagnosis, he figured out my issue.
Takes the time to listen to your concerns and is very kind.
Very quick once I got in to see him. Doesn't waste time. Seems to know his stuff.
I was very pleased with him. He read all my labs and my recent ultrasound. Discussed the fatty liver. Recommended a blood test for enzymes levels . He was very professional and thorough. He will see me again in a month.
It was a very nice visit.
I've been having stomach problems since I've had my 2 yr old son. Thanks Dr. Aruba for solving my problem. I've been to several Gastro specialist, and have had 2 surgeries. Dr. Aruba really solved my problem in 15 minutes when I had my consultation. His office is very peaceful and pleasant. Although I must say there's a little wait time, but they told me to fill out my registration on zocdoc.com, but My life is just way too busy for that. Thanks God Bless you Sir
Trust was established with his knowledge and explanation of procedures needed to diagnose. I am very happy so far. Location needs to be explained when recommended by Emergency room at Methodist Hospital on their documents or a phone number would be better. I got lost and had to stop and get directions.
Very professional and knowledgeable.
Went Great! Staff was great too! Will go back and see he again.
He asked a lot of questions which I liked. He didn't make assumptions before he heard all I had to say. I have to go back for a follow-up visit and will make my final decision then. So far....so good.
