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.

We've been seeing Dr. Araiza for about a year now for slow growth in my twins. Although the initial appointment process was a bit frustrating (had to get copies of their charts sent over and wrist x-rays done before we could make the appointment), she has been one of the most caring, compassionate doctors I've ever dealt with. She takes the time to explain everything she's doing and why she's doing it. Talks not just to me/adults but makes sure she speaks directly with the children and always makes sure you understand everything including next steps. I highly recommend Dr. Araiza.

Run the other way. Made an appointment for my son due to growth problems and was told I need a bone age scan of the left hand along with his medical records. Dr Araiza's nurse called and told us based on the scan there was nothing that she could do to help him. We decided to keep the appointment so we could understand why she felt she could not help based on the scan. When I showed up for the appointment I was told that they would not see me without my son unless I paid the doctor $150.

We showed up for our appt 10-15 min early. They had the doors locked, saw us outside, and ignored us. It was raining off and on. When I addressed Dr. Araiza about my concern she called me rude and said not to show up early ever. She told me to show up on time everytime bc they're too busy and unequipped to handle us showing up 10 min early. The front office staff needs manners and a customer service class. Endocrin appts are a big deal for us. Needless to say we did NOT feel appreciated.
