I would have to hate someone to recommend Dr. Arango. Mainly sees Workman's Comp cases because no one in their right mind would choose to go to him. Not interested in the patients. Have to sign a lot of papers to release him of any legal responsibility. Believe me I am being generous by not saying what I really feel about him and the Workers Comp system that uses him. Good Luck to those that have to go to him.
