    I was in a lot of pain and my GP doctor was able to get me in the next day to Dr. ARONOFF. He was very thorough and explained very frankly what was going on. I recommend him highly and will see him again if I need a follow up.

    I love Dr Aronoff he helped saved my life 5 yrs ago and continues to see me with the concern and care he has since the first day. His staff is always professional , courtesy and friendly. Good Doctors are hard to find and he's one of the best.

    Dr. Aronoff and his team are professional and friendly. They have a caring style and create a comfortable environment as well as providing test results quickly and thoroughly. They follow up as they promise and provide the results and details to my GP. Great experience. Thank you

    I have been a patient of Dr. Aronoff for the last 3 months. He is very professional and very knowledgeable but what really impressed me with my visit was his candor and sincere interest in my care. He did not recommend surgery in my case and was very good at explaining to me his reasons. He went over all my options with me and took the time to make sure I understood the plan. Although the office is shared with other doctors, his staff is very polite and accommodating.

    Short wait period. Staff was very sweet and accommodating. Doctor was the best. Spent time explaining everything to me and told me not to worry! He was right. I was better in a week.

    First the staff gave us a brochure about the surgery which said that an enema was required. When I questioned it, they said oops that was old information. Then I arrived with my minor son for his surgery and the office staff said that I had to pay out of pocket for the anesthesiologist and they should have told us ahead of time. We walked out. My son was devastated as he was hoping to have his health problem be over. We liked Dr. Aronoff but his office reflects very badly on him.
    Horrible experience! I performed a procedure called rubber band ligation. I asked him many times about side effects and he assured me that everything would go fine and that in mostly 4 days I would be able to go back to the office. I did the procedure on Thursday (Friday was a holiday) and thought I would be ok by Monday. After a bowel movement, my hemorrhoids got swollen so badly that it took more than 3 weeks to get back to normal. I worked in pain from home for 2 weeks and lost my job.
