I have seen Dr. Arfai for the past 4 years and I know he is the best pain doctor here in the valley. He has gave me several injections and pain meds. But I been getting worst He's office has been getting big but lately I haven't been able to see him I take Dilaudid 1 or 2 pills every 4 to 6 hours I had told Dr Richard that my pain is getting worst instead of finding something to reliefs my pain he has told me that he's going to reduce my pain meds there fore I'm not been able to do what I didb4

Great guy n doc. Takes his time n listens to you

I've had 3 successful treatments and am now in need of a fourth. Today I've made 3 phone calls to your 'existing patient' phone number. Left a message with a callback number mid morning but no response by 2pm. Called again at 2pm and your message said your mailbox was full. Called again shortly after 5pm and could leave a 2nd message and heard that I could make an appointment online. When I tried that option the message is 'you only make appointments online for NEW patients'. NOW WHAT?

I am an RN and have had a 20 year back pain problem that was so severe I ended up on disability. I have had nothing but positive interactions with Dr Arfai. He is a very kind man and an excellent physician. I now have a spinal cord implant and take zero pain medications. Life without excruciating pain and without narcotics is wonderful. I would absolutely recommend Dr Arfai.

Don't waste your time with this doctor. He is totally incompetent and will not treat with any medications. He also judges you if you see other doctors for other conditions. I have several conditions and some give me meds but nothing narcotic. I didn't even want a narcotic drug. He judged me and broke his Hippocratic oath to treat the patient.

I went in with back pain I've suffered for the past 20 years, after finally, my insurance company allowing me to see a pain management specialist on Feb 1, 2016. Dr. Arfai ordered an MRI, which one of his staff member entered into the computer and got me an instant approval. She made an appointment for Feb 14, 2016. When I went in, he had the results, and before coming into the room, he had already read my MRI results and knew them without consulting the report!!! He is awesome!
