I called to reschedule an appointment but the lady on the line (Dina) was rude. People who works on healthcare MUST have a heart no matter what they are going through. To think that this will be mg first time to meet the doctor.

Was referred to see this doctor from my primary. Set a appointment for a month out. Went to the appt, they checked me in a room, waited 20mins before he came in just to tell me that he can’t see me and to see my old GI, which he moved 55 miles away. He was extremely rude and moody towards me. I dont know if he was having a bad day or what but as medical professional you do not take your personal issues out on patients period. Avoid him, you’ve been warned!

Dr Aaron's diagnosed my mother with IBS a couple of years ago. She recently went back into his office with severe abdominal pain and asked if he thought there was something else going on. Without doing any additional procedures like a scope or ordering a colonoscopy he told her it was just her IBS and to come back in a few weeks. A week later she was in the hospital because of a bowel obstruction. Do not go to this man. He needs to retire.

Well i was kind of disappointed at first it took me two months to see him , but it was well worth it !! He spent a lot of time with me explaining what my stomach issues were and how to best minimize flareups from coming back. Didn't feel rushed at all to get out,spent a lot of time with me and educated me on what my body was going through. Thanks Dr. Aarons really appreciated your time today! Helped me a lot knowing that I'm going to be OK! Would recommend him to any of my family or friends!

He's a great doctor that takes time to listen to his patient. My general practice doctor told me Dr Aaron's is the best there is. He did a colonoscopy & put a scope down my stomach. My tests were normal but sent me to the hospital for more tests. They showed a had gallstones. I'm thankful he didn't blow me off for having acid reflux.
