Worse experience ever, I took my mom to see her 2 weeks ago June 2018. She spoke to us like we were stupid and had a 2nd grade education, at one point she yield at my mom and walk out the room while we were still talking to her. Her attitude is unbelievable, such a young doctor but so nasty and rude. The nurse that was with her Add more compassion and she tried to talk to us after the doctor stormed out of the room. Never again.

After making my parents wait for an hour and 45 minutes in the examination room, with no communication from the staff, she treated them as ignorant children. No respect! Jessica, please take accountability for your behavior and the management of your office.

Dr.Arias is the most compassionate and caring physician I have ever known. She is professional, very knowledgeable and treats her patients like family members. It is sad that drug seeking patients are not happy and write a bad review of such an amazing human being. I love her, she is one of a kind! Highly recommend her.

The worst experience I have ever had in ANY Drs office. The nurse walked in the room, and before she even asked, she told me that under no circumstances does the Dr. dispense medications. I was not there for medications and was highly insulted by this beginning conversation. The Dr. has the personality of a dial tone. She recommended an MRI but when I was given the prescription it was for a CT. Scan. She changed with no explanation. When I questioned the nurse, she exploded. UNACCEPTABLE!!!

I absolutely adore her expertise, caring nature, and diligence on trying to stop your pain. Today, I had an epidural lumbar injection. The nurses in the room were great at calming me by rubbing my leg to relax me. Dr. Arias spoke to me during the entire procedure. She did not rush and was very thorough the entire procedure. I would not have trusted any other doctor based on may opinions I had received. For 2 years she has been right on every treatment. Thank You Dr. A! xo

Apparently well qualified, but in a rush. She has a busy practice and I felt like she didn't give me enough time. I was in a lot of pain and she was not sympathetic. Scheduled treatment 3 weeks later. Wouldn't fit me in despite my pain. So I called another pain doctor and was seen immediately and given more attention.

Very caring and compassionate Dr. She took time to explain to me the MRI, X Rays and her treatment plan. After trying with 2 prior Drs. without success, at last I found a Dr. that helped me get back my quality of life again. I feel so much better of my horrible back. pain. !Excellent professional!

Wouldn't go to her again. Tried to explain to her how I fell and injured my neck resulting in constant pain. She snapped at me and said "Don't tell me your life story." What kind of medical professional says this to a patient?? Extremely, extremely horrible attitude to take toward a patient. She'll never see another dime of my money!!

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Arias Garau. I brought my mother in to see Dr. Arias for chronic back pain. She had already been to 2 prior pain management doctor without any help. Dr. Arias took an exceptional amount of time listening to my mother, reviewing her MRI and x-rays and coming up with the CORRECT plan of care. I am happy to say my mother is in a lot less pain today because of not only Dr. Arias's expertise in her field but also because of her care and compassion.

I wouldn't recommend Dr. Arias. I switched after three office visits. The staff was excellent and the office was very clean and friendly. My issue was with Dr. Arias and her poor attitude.
