About Me

The field is constantly innovating and I continue to enjoy using both classic and new techniques to treat patients.

This doctor was so very rude, abrupt, and dismissed my concerns. She became agitated regarding my concerns and shoved two instruments towards me without explanations as to what she was measuring. She was very unkind. She then quickly left the room sending her assistant in to show me checkout I would never interact with a person with this type of personality. A course in bedside manner is needed here!

Dr Arief is the only specialist to even be able to find the spur from my finger tip fracture. Her skill is unmatched and attention to detail very refreshing. You cannot go wrong with this surgeon.

Doctor Arief was fantastic! Her recommendations for my wrist pain are already relieving my symptoms in a short amount of time. We were very impressed by the staff, both in reception/check out as well as back in the room. Would definitely recommend this office - great service and easy to access location at Springwoods Village (Grand Parkway and Holzworth).

Dr. Arief and her staff deserve the highest recommendation for excellence. She is knowledgeable, thorough, personable and honest. She explained two options while showing me the x-rays and provided pros and cons of both options. It’s obvious that she and her staff are exceptional and they genuinely care about the patient’s well being. Dr. Arief was the second ortho opinion and my first choice for my treatment. Prior ortho tried to rush me into expensive surgery. So thankful for Dr. Arief.

Dr. Arief was very attentive and patient with explaining all my options to me. I was living with the pain for far too long. Wish I had made an appointment much sooner.
