I would NOT recommend Dr. Aranibar to anyone in need of a critical care Pulmonary Dr. He was very arrogant and cold when treating my husband in the ICU. He never came to see him while I was with my husband for the month he was in ICU during the hours I was there. He offered no solutions when I did finally speak to him after calling a meeting. He was very unprofessional. He had nothing with him at the meeting and basically told me he has no hope and I shouldn’t either. He told me I should just give up. I would never want any other family members or friends to be under his care. I felt like he gave up on him early on and didn’t help in any way when I wanted him transferred somewhere else that could possibly help.

Completely ineffective, did nothing to improve my lung function, didn't offer breathing techniques, exercises. I have another doctor who prescribed a medicine that actually helped.

Dr. Aranabar, Pulmonologist is professional, competent and compassionate. He is genuine and explains your situation in an easily understood manner. You can depend on his expertise and easy going manner to provide you with the best care. His nurse/assistant, Kelly is also exceptional. She is excellent at putting patients at ease, carefully listening to patient’s concerns, solving medical systems challenges, and providing expert support services for Dr. Aranabar. We highly recommend their services at Intercoastal Medical.

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.
