Dr. Arbelaez is the best PCP that I have had (I've lived in 5 different states). He listens, explains things very clearly, and always has a plan and logical next steps. I will continue to strongly recommend him when anyone asks me about PCP recommendations in the area.

Dr Arbalaez is a Dr that really takes his time with his patients and is by far the most thorough Dr I have ever had. He is very pleasant and easy to talk too. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I felt like finally there was someone that was actually listening to me and considering my symptoms. Even the most minor ones and even if the outcome is different than what I expected or was originally thinking myself. I feel like I'm finally getting down to an answer and a way to move forward. But the biggest thing is I finally felt heard. And it's been a long time since I have felt that way when I went to a doctor.

My doctor listens to me, talks to me as an equal, and gives me the straight answers. I am happy to see him for rechecks, physicals, and acute care too.

My doctor and nurses take the time to listen and chat with me about all of my health needs. I was able to get into a room quickly to see my doctor, but did not feel rushed while speaking with my medical providers. They explained things to me clearly and were receptive and supportive of my health concerns.
