Dr. Arya and his staff (especially Annie) are kind, caring and professional. They take the time to listen to you and not rush through your appointment. Dr. Arya is genuinely a patient and caring doctor. I am so glad to have found him, so much so my husband also sees him and i recommend to anyone i know needing a gastroenterologist.

Dr. Arya is a detailed and professional doctor. He is thorough in his analysis and patient care. The woman who made our appointment at the front desk was also helpful. The nurse who tended my mother prior to Dr. Ayra was friendly and attentive. All around great service!

Knowledgeable, caring, office professional and courteous. Have seen Dr. Arya for routine exam procedures in the past. This time I had C-Diff; far more serious. He prescribed a strong antibiotic, instructed me as to diet, took time to answer my questions, helped me with knowledge how to sanitize our home. Am better after prescribed course. Much grateful. So far so good. Did not have to go to hospital. Highly recommend.

Dr. Arya and Dr.Gupta are awesome! They made my colonoscopy a pleasant experience! They actually take the time to talk to their patients, and they do an excellent job! The staff is friendly and professional! Highly recommended by an RN, who is not easy to please when it comes to medical care!

Overall a great experience at Dr. Arya's office in Middle Village. He performed both my Endoscopy in 2013 and Colonoscopy in 2018. A good listener to all questions, provided insightful feedback and explained each step in detail. Highly recommended. Also knowledgeable and friendly staff added to my comfort level.
