Worst lung doctor ever! Never has any answers and never provides options to help. Just looks at you and says "I don't know...."Can't even recommend someone else to see who might be able to help. Mu husband has COPD and this Dr. is clueless!

Dr. Aranibar is the best. He was my husband’s doctor for many many years and even went from one hospital to another to take care of him. He always returned my phones calls even when he was not working. He is the most caring, compassionate and knowledgeable doctor I have ever met. If it hadn’t been for Dr. Aranibar, my husband would have passed away a lot sooner. There is no Doctor that can even compete with his knowledge and wonderful bed manner. I was lucky to have him.

His bedside manner and knowledge are horrific. I wouldn't trust him to make any sort of competent decision. His ego was exhausting and made it impossible to get my needs met. He was also extremely late.

Is not a Specialist in the true sense, as he is not knowledgeable of extremely serious pulmonary diseases nor does he take advise from other physicians at Intercoastal Medical Group with expanding his knowledge of current trends, programs, and other medical services offered for treatment of serious pulmonary diseases. And don't count on him to complete any paperwork you may need completed in a timely fashion.

In my wife's recent brush with death due a lung ailment, Dr. Aranibar, our personal physician and specialist pulmonologist, completely failed us both in addressing the problem, recommending appropriate action and simply following up on the case. He seemed bewildered, over his head and indecisive. Fortunately, others stepped in to make the decisions to save my wife's life. Dr. Aranibar is a "nice" guy but I would never recommend him as a pulmonologist for any serious health condition.
