Stay away! All this doctor does is come in sit in a chair say yes and no to the arnp. I took my son in with chronic abdominal pain, gas, and cramping after constipation 2 weeks ago and he stated there is nothing he can do. IBS does not exist in small children according to him and I left there with a child in pain everyday of his life and all he said was the next time he is screaming in pain to take him to the ER. He refused doing any testing for food intolerance also.

Dr. Arasu saved my life when I was a teenager. No one could figure out why I was nauseated every single day for five years. He found the 17 ulcerations throughout my GI tract and cured me. I can never thank him enough. I hope to see him again one day to thank him in person. Wonderful doctor!

I was treated by Dr. Arasu for Crohns Disease from 12 to 18 years old. He was always kind and gentle. He treated me with respect and never talked down to me. I would recommend him to everyone.

I took my 17 year old daughter in to see him because she was having pain every time she ate. He was so gentle and so understanding of her pain. He tried medication, but when that did not work he did test on her to figure out the point of her pain and found out it was her gallbladder we scheduled surgery and even then he showed that same kindness.

Stay away from this office. First this doctor has never even touched my son to check him out, he leaves it up to his ARNP. All he does is come in and sit in a chair and fold his arms and says yes or no to whatever the ARNP has come up with. Also he is never on time and average wait time is about 1-2 hours. They have awful communication skills. They would say they called and left me a message and NEVER did. I had to go over 5 days to get a stool card result that takes 5 mins. zero stars for him!!

Felt like a drive-by diagnosis. Arasu didn't prescribe any medicine to help with symptoms after being diagnosed on a Friday (going into weekend) and after MONTHS of testing with pediatrician and dealing with symptoms wondering what the problem was. Office needs more staff because phone rings with no answer during office hours for nurse or just to schedule appointment and when you do have appointment never seen on time. Once in room feels rushed by Arasu. I have since found another doctor.

Dr. Arasu has helped our son I am so thankful we have found him. He listens to what we say and answers our questions. Not like other doctors who told us it is IBS we listened until he became so sick that we found Dr Arasu and he has help us get our son healthy. Anybody who tells you this man is not good has their own issues. Not only do you see the NP you also see the DR every visit. What office does that? Every Visit you have time spent with you. Please tell me who does that?
