Extremely unhappy with this Dr. Went to see this doctor after being referred for back pain. The doctor was combative, basically called me a liar, and was extremely unhelpful. Stay Away!!!

I have been going to Dr Arber on-and-off for years for pain due to a back injury. I find him to be incredibly knowledgable, and have never had any problems. He is a man of few words, but an empathetic guy. HIS OFFICE MANAGER, RECEPTIONIST, WHATEVER . . I came in to ask Dr Arber for a referral for a doctor, and an appt with Dr Arber, and the woman who was there said to fill in the necessary forms & dont call us, we'll call you. She was NOT wearing a name tag, either.

Dr. Arber is absolutely the most knowledgeable and empathetic physician I’ve encountered. There is often a slight wait, but it’s worth every minute. He listens, tracks and cares about your progress, and wants you to improve.

This office is beyond horrible! Stay away! My husband came in to see Dr Arber once, for a back pain. He was happy with the Dr, no issues there. However, this was in 2016. Literally 2 yrs later, in October 2018 we get a bill for over $600 for that visit. Their computer system wasnt set up correctly and apparently they never billed us, according to them! I cant go back to my insurance now, as we've switched the provider. Stay away, is all I can say!

Very knowledgeable, and caring doctor. Sometimes you may have to wait to a while to see him, but it is worth it knowing that he is caring for each patient, which each are experiencing different levels of pain. He also takes his time with each patient so he can treat each person according to their individual needs and pain levels.

Awful. Waited for an appointment for 2 1/2 hours, no one even attempted to apologize. Everyone in this office is incredibly slow and inept. The doctor is rude, dismissive and cold. My grandmother came in with horrible back pain, and she specifically scheduled an appointment for an injection to relieve the pain. The doctor dismissively told her that he won't be able to do the injection because she needed to stop her medication beforehand (even though no one bothered to inform her in advance).

Very dismissive and cold. Does not acknowledge patients directly after they explain they are hard or hearing. Extremely reluctant to answer questions about procedure, recovery time, and possible risks. Very uncomfortable atmosphere. Would not recommend.

Dr. Arber is a convened doctor that answers questions and is skilled at the administration of epidurals. But as with anything pain related, it is not a precise science.,, even when the injection is in the correct place they don't always work. Dr. Arber will work with you to got to a solution.

Very rude man, doesn't explain anything or ask you any questions about your pain or health issues I left his office feeling helpless and quite frankly builled. It's a shame so many people abuse medications that even a pain doctor can't identify a person who is actually in pain he basically said he was taking me off my current medication abruptly as a mother with a full time job and no history of substance abuse I hoped a gradual transition and new treatment plan but he offered nothing
