Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been going to this doctor for years. He is kind, considerate, and very caring with each individual. He came highly recommended and I trust him 100% with my life. He has helped me overcome a lot of trials and tribulations. Never want to change. Listening to me and giving me care is what every individual should have in a doctor.

Very unprofessional and rude. Brought up my weight after my INITIAL appointment and told me I should start exercising more. Made me feel incredibly demeaned and insecure, I will never be returning.

Although I have only see Dr. Arfee a couple of times I am very pleased with him. He discusses my mental health, addresses my physical problems and is so kind about the problems in my life. He has assisted me in finding the correct medication and the correct dosage. Also the staff in his office couldn't be nicer or more helpful.

Dr. Arfeen cares more about your weight than your depression. I gained weight while recovering from surgery and, rather than discussing my mental health at our next appointment, got a lecture and a recommendation for a medicine that has a potential side effect of causing WORSENING DEPRESSION according to my PCP.
