I absolutely LOVE Dr. Arsuaga! He's got a very friendly staff working with him too! He's funny and friendly and answers all of my questions. Before going to him, I spent over a year trying to figure out what was wrong with my back. Every doctor I went to, they would x-ray my mid-upper back, but never looked at my lower back and/or coccyx which is where I complained of pain. Arsuaga was the first to order the MRI for my lower spine & coccyx which found the deterioation.

I have been a patient of dr. Arsuaga for over 30 years and I just adore him. Has helped me tremendously and when I didn't have insurance was very conscientious that and of the cost of my medicine he was able to give me samples and didn't do any unnecessary tests.

Do NOT go to this doctor. He is arrogant, rude, argumentative and swears in conversation, which I find totally unprofessional. I have seen this doctor on two occasions, and both times I left in tears. He has no filter for his mouth and has zero compassion for me as his patient. I refuse to go to a doctor who doesn't treat me respectfully and kindly. I suggest that if you are overweight in any capacity, DO NOT go to this doctor. He is degrading and terribly disrespectful.

I have been a patient of Dr Arsuaga for over 17 years. He finally diagnosed my RA after seeing several others. He is kind, thorough and very caring. He listens to me and has always considered my opinions about various medications. I don't think you could find a better doctor!
