Had an appointment for my two children that we are adopting with Dr. Arene this morning. The kids have been using her for a while now. After the hour drive from our house to the office, the lady at the desk informs us that the kids are no longer in network. When asked why the office did not even bother to call and let us to let us know, I was told that they called the previous caretaker of the children. I might be able to understand this, but not only did they update all of our info (name, and numbers) last time we were there with the kids, but I also spoke to the previous caretaker and was informed that they did not call her either. Not to mention, the Dr. was not even in town.

She just signs off on the same meds without adjusting for issues. I have been married to my husband for 43 years and his caretaker for over 30 years and he told her a lie about me so she let him know she doubted me. Now he feels he can do what he wants. When dealing with someone with mental issues, the caretaker and the doctor must be a team, not adversaries. The result...my husband ended up hospitalized very very ill.

Unfortunately this office does not listen to what services are requested. No one in the front knows what's going on. They just say yes they can provide the service even when its later confirmed that they do not. Furthermore they refuse to refund your money when the needed service is not provided. Fraud is a strong word; however, I feel I have been defrauded out of a significant amount of money. AND it has not helped my son in any way. Very disappointed. I am not sure how you expect repeat

SHORT VERSION: Dr. Arene is unethical and greedy. She will ask new patients to submit to a urinalysis test, AND a blood test, ostensibly for their own good. Then the “independent lab” that does the testing will charge you like $5,000 or so! Here’s the kicker: Dr. Arene is part owner of this “independent lab”, and stands to make a profit! LONGER VERSION: My advice would be to see the above, and ask yourself, “Do I already know if I am addicted to meth or coke or pot or pain pills? Etc."

Dr. Arene was easy to speak with, although I was attempting to condense all my issue due to the limitations of time she understood my demeanor. I was very surprised at the fee that was required as my fee for other specialist MD's are not as exstravagant nor do I have to pay additional fees when they use of diagnostic equipment need for my evaluation but, that is something I will have to address with my carrier.

I love LOVE Dr. Arene, and I FEEL terrible leaving her a bad review for her staff... However, I had a phone appointment at 9 AM. I called at 9:07 am to make sure I didn't miss a call or mess up the time. The staff member said in a NASTY tone, IT IS ONLY 9:05!!!! Um, not it's not but what ever. I said okay I was making sure I was on the list and didn't mess up the time... "YES SHE WILL CALL YOU SHORTLY". Disconnected. Here I am 9:40 AM and no call. I don't trust they even made the appt!

I took my daughter here for a mental health evaluation this morning and am disgusted at the employee's attitude. I was told my appointment would be about $12 but it ended up being $60 because the office manager didn't tell me the first appointment was $350! I expressed my confusion to the woman at the front desk and she didn't seem to care and didn't offer any explanation. When I expressed my confusion about that, she proceeded to tell me, with extreme attitude, that she planned on telling the
