He needs to fire his entire office staff. They clearly have a high disregard for sick patients to be so late sending out and giving them important documents. They do not seem happy about or care about their career. It's very difficult to be in the waiting room 5+ hours too. There should be compensation for wasting a person's time.

Dr.Arulu is the best he cares for you explains everything and takes his time you never feel rushed get all questions answered while there you will never get thru on the phone and you will never get a call back but if you email the Dr he will email you back.

This Doctors office sucks! The receptionist is disorganized. Papers are everywhere, it looks horrid. They take forever to schedule an mri…and God forbid you have an appointment at 12 pm. Youll be there till 5. Better go to the Panera across the street because you will need your breakfast, lunch and dinner.

He is a wonderful caring and professional physician. He takes time with you and don't make you feel your time slot is over. Excellent caregiver dedicated been a patient for over 14 years. Highly recommend for patients suffering with headaches, MS and neuropathy.
Dr. Aralu is an amazing neurologist that spends time with his patients, so expect to have a wait. He explains condition and answers questions thoroughly and works with you as a whole person. He is highly respected and recommended by RNs and therapists. But, I'm thinking of leaving practice due unprofessional poorly managed front office ranging from phone calls not answered, Inability to leave message due automated service being full, to difficulty in getting appointment in timely manner.
