What People Say About Dr. Arup Achari, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Achari has been my cardiologist since my heart attack in 2010. As an active man who loves weight training and the outdoors, my long term goal was to return to peak physical condition. Dr. Achari has been with me along that journey guiding me in nutritional choices and appropriate medical treatment. Thanks to Dr. Achari I can say he has restored my health to a condition I would have never thought possible. I cannot say enough about this Dr.

Rude, dismissive and unhelpful I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. He acts like it is painful for him to answer questions. In this day and age a doctor who won't talk to patients has no place in healthcare
