Review for Dr. Burd

I have used Dr Arouni for 26 years. She has done colonoscopy, treated Hepatitis C and Barrett Esophagus. She has always been upfront and honest, which are traits I respect. I always know with her I am getting the best care.

Review for Dr. Arouni

I had back surgery 15 years ago Dr. Fuller was the Surgeon and had been well since then. I had an x-ray and he explained the problem now and what my options were. I do feel he will help me feel better soon.
