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.

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!
