Was recommend to Dr. Arbit by my PCP and was looking forward to seeing him. But, I never met him because I walked out of the appointment before I could see him. Dr. Arbit's office staff was some of the rudest individuals that I have ever met. Frankly, I was so upset with the I think it was the Office Manager I just left. They spent 45 minutes with me going over by medical history the day before the appointment and wanted to review it me again when I came to the office. The Office Manager was rude and very abrupt with me when I said I did not want to to that, again. I am an elderly individual and didn't have the patience to do that again. Forgot some of my information which I gave them on the phone the day before and was upset with me that I forgot it. It was the day before the Christmas holiday and they told me that they were doing a favor my seeing me. I go the doctor all the time and have never been treated so rudely by the doctors medical staff.

My patient experience with Dr. Arbit was outstanding. My wait time was minimal, his patient approach and physician manner was relaxed, friendly, caring and focused. He spent more than enough time to run through the battery of physical tests, provided visuals via a 3D skeletal program (on his laptop) to help me gain a better understanding of the problems, accurately diagnosed the problem and defined a course of treatment. Overall, an excellent provider/patient interaction and I'd recommend Dr. Arbit highly,.

I was very disappointed when the doctor took his phone out in the middle of my exam and replied emojis to a text. There was a student in room as well so not only was he ignoring her he was interested in his phone more than the patient.

Dr Arbit is an extremely knowledgeable, professional person who exhibits genuine interest in and concern for his patients. He is an excellent listener, and is a person who takes time to clearly explain a diagnosis while offering a clear path for resolution of the problem. He introduces just the right amount of good humor to make a visit to his practice a very positive experience. I highly recommend this physician.

Gardner, J in Commerce, MI – Nov 02, 2018
Five years ago I was almost ready to get a knee replacement. Another doctor of my suggested that I make an appointment with Dr. Arbit for a second opinion. He told me that my knew was bone on bone and suggested that I try a series of three Euflexxa insjections to have the cartilage regrow. It work so well that I have never needed to have any surgery and I play tennis three times per week! It seemed like a miracle.

Kathryn Obryan in Milford, MI – Aug 03, 2018
I currently have Lyme disease & Fibromyalgia. I suffer with: fatigue, brain fog, aching, tingling/numbness, stiff neck, back pain, joint pain, chest pain, heart palpitations, mood changes, and poor sleep. I started acupuncture with Dr. Arbit in Jan. 2018, at which point I was unable to work and had daily pain levels of 9-10. I am currently back to work and my pain levels are now 2-3. My energy, sleep quality, and mood have also improved!! Acupuncture with Dr. Arbit has been a life saver!!!
