Care Philosophy

Arrowhead Health Centers is a comprehensive, integrated network of providers that deliver primary care along with pain and injury management, diagnostics, and rehabilitation. Our founders recognized at the very beginning that when you put people first, people get healthy. So they simply asked people what they wanted and delivered it. That was 1997, and from that point on Arrowhead Health Centers has focused on quality of care and quality of service. That means treating people with respect; being on time; making doctor visits convenient, treatments effective, the process easy, and the doctors approachable. This is the Arrowhead Health Centers difference. We put people first, and it shows.Read more

Did not take the time to listen to everything I worried about gave him a list of symptoms and he did bloodwork gave me steroids and nystatin for my rash and told me it was non specific. I asked him about my other symptoms once my labs came back and he said my other symptoms must just be a part of life and said my bloodwork didnt suggest anything. Also he is always booked. Takes two weeks to get in.
Phoenix, AZ |
Very condescending attitude & unwillingness to listen to my concerns as the patient. When telling me that I needed to see a specialist, he said "our referrals department is behind by 4 months so if you can get in on your own try that & then call if that doesn't work". He said that he would prescribe antibiotics for what he thought I had, which a different dr. then said would not work if the diagnosis been correct, as the affliction he suggested was viral, bacterial. Unprofessional. Waste of time
