Horrible experience I just had with this Dr. He walked into the exam room without a mask and then proceeded to tell me that he had already had Covid and that it was no use, that we are all going to get it and there is no way to contain it. Then he asked me what I was afraid of anyway? That it was no worse than the flu. I stood up, told him I totally disagree with him and that I do not trust him to do my colonoscopy and he was in direct contradiction to all of my other Dr's. What a quack! I feel sorry for his staff and patients.

Initial consultation was terrific, and on-time. Dr. Arimie is extremely knowledgeable and carefully listened to my concerns. He fully prepared himself for the consultation by reviewing my medical history and family health patterns, He kindly and patiently explained exactly what needed to be done considering all factors involved. Staff was excellent as well, ensured my health insurance company was notified for procedural approvals and scheduling was professional with explanation of preparations.

I was referred to Dr. Arimie because I needed a new gastroenterologist. I have suffered with IBS for years. After one visit Dr. Arimie prescribed a proper medication for me and discussed diet and exercise that would help combat the side effects of this illness. I now feel much better and able to manage this disease. I plan to remain in his care.

Dr. Arimie, along with Dr. Chitayat have been a life-saver for me. Their knowledge and being "right up front" with the problem, is what every patient wants to know. Their follow-up with me is vitally important to maintain my health. I highly recommend Dr. Arimie as your GI Doctor

I was referred to Dr. Arimie by my healthcare group for a routine colonoscopy and I couldn't be more pleased by my experience. On my first visit to his office I was impressed by the calm atmosphere and the friendly professionalism of the entire staff. Dr. Arimie spent a lot of time explaining the procedure and I felt that he was a caring and competent physician. After the procedure, before I left the surgical center, he went over the findings with me and was very thorough.
