Actually zero stars..his office staff is nice. Don’t get surgery by him though, he almost killed me and the staff at Osceola Regional will just follow his lead even though they know he’s doing wrong. Horrible experience and never once got an apology for his error. He became angered when questioned, hung up on my family members, and tried admitting me to a mental health facility. He lied in his hospital notes with a diagnosis that I did not have prior to being admitted. He was Mr Nice Guy in the beginning then turned into an arrogant, rude, disgusting man. I pray someday he experience what I went through so that he can feel what I felt.

My visits with the doctor and staff are always a great visit. I went their for a follow up and explained to the doctor i have pain in certain areas and he examined me and notice my pain is great, so he said to me im going to give you shots to help with that. I was surprised because it was a follow up on medication. But i loved that fact he cared about me an my pain and continue to help me so much. I told my friends and family that Doctor Areola is a perfect doctor. He doesnt give up on his patients and will do everything in his power to care for me. Thank you doctor i love you and you staff. Ten stars. Great hard working always their when needed and even checks up on me when i dont need him. God bless

My experience at Dr. Arriola's office was outstanding. From the moment I walked in the office personnel was pleasant, attentive and professional. Dr. Arriola gave me the information that explained my problems and recommended treatment to resolve the issues. Other doctors had very little encouragement for me. I read the reviews before making my appointment and feel it's one of the best decisions of my life. I will be glad to write again after the procedure is done and believe I'll be one of the many with excellent results.

He listens and responds with thoughtfulness and expertise. I appreciate his understanding of the pain I was having. He did all he could do before suggesting surgery. That was different than most Doctors.

I was scared. I was confused and didn’t have my mind. I came into the hospital knowing something was wrong. Your team discovered a large meningeal tumor. After my tumor was discovered I became more afraid. Dr. Arriola was not only brilliant in surgery but proverbially gave me reassurance. During my recovery, all of the doctors, nurses and entire staff were kind to me and did everything to make me comfortable. During rehab, I started to learn many things over again with regard to manual dexterity and walking. Thank you all for saving my life.

He is just a fantastic Dr. He is currently caring for me after a terrible accident 2 months ago. He checked on me every day for two weeks while I was in the hospital. He is very clear about what to expect during the recovery process and answers all questions thoroughly. His office staff go above and beyond. Especially Velmary.

Dr. Arriolo was great!!! I had been researching a specialist with his skills and expertise for over 2 months to find someone who was experienced with my medical condition. He kept me and my family informed before and after the craniotomy.

Dr. Arriola did a discectomy and fusion of C4, C5 & C6 in May 2019. I am so grateful for having had this surgery and Dr. Arriola's care! I was experiencing numbness, tingling and pain in both of my hands and weakness in my legs. Three months post-op and I've gained strength back in my legs and the numbness and tingling is down to minimal and getting better every day! I'm truly thankful for Dr. Arriola's abilities and help!
