Incompetent, rude, should not be practicing medicine. I was asked invasive questions and discriminated against. Spoke with the office director about my awful experience, allegedly Dr. Arumala has a lot of complaints against her.

Great visit. Dr Arimala very patient as I have a severe speech impediment and she took time to listen. I didn’t think I’d be able to find another primary doctor like the one I had for over 20 years but I did. I felt like I was her only patient.

I was extremely dissatisfied with the care I received here. Dr. Arumala is rude and dismissive, and ignores the concerns of her patients. I found her care lacking and bordering incompetent. Despite having access to my charts and medical history, she prescribed medications to me that were in conflict with my history and medications I was already taking. I raised concerns about my ongoing panic disorder, and she refused to refill my medication, and dispassionately told me to "go to a doctor" if I
