What People Say About Dr. Richard Areen, MD
Reply
Dr. Areen is very personable and warm to meet with; however, he and the Sac ENT organization tend to treat patients like a number. They are a very busy practice and that results in a lack of personal connection. While visiting their office for over a year, I was regularly asked "why are you here today"? Or other such entry questions. This was discomforting when dealing with a serious problem. I have since switched to another provider.
