Dr. Arar is great. He is friendly. He is informative. He is thorough. He tells the patient what he is seeing and why it is important. He performed a diabetic retinopathy exam on me. The reason I didn't rate him a 5 is that his administrative staff is not good. I've asked them 3 times to transfer the exam report to my Primary Care Physician; My PCP still does not have the report.
