My wait time was less than expected, my time actually with her was longer than expected(which I appreciated) and she was very attentive to my medical needs. The receptionist was very nice and made me feel welcomed. The office does not feel like a typical doctor's office. Very pleasant experience from start to finish.

I give him A across the board. He has an amazing staff, very professional, flexible. He is a sweetheart, professional; you can ask him anything, and he will explain it to you. I only have wonderful things to say about him.

’t think he’s taking new patients but he is amazing. He is very personable and very involved in our care. He likes people and he shows it. He is personally involved in everything in our case to make sure we stay healthy. We’re older and he watches us very closely. He takes as much time as he needs with a patient and if he’s running behind, he has someone call to tell us to come at a later time. They

’t make us wait two or three hours in the office. We’re on Medicare so we never have to deal with the billing. We’re not going to change doctors.

She submitted my blood work with the wrong code and has refused to resubmit it for me -- I was told her husband is trying to sort out her billing errors. I am still getting billed for over $400 now on my third collection agency. Follow-up to my tests and x-rays consisted of a cell phone conversation that was a poor connection and broke up. She called in a prescription for Lipitor at $200/mo. to my pharmacy with no discussion that I needed it. The way it was handled suggests she received a financial kick-back from the manufacturer.

The services I received were good. The overall experience was excellent. They were punctual and available. The office environment was excellent, and the staff was friendly. I would use this provider again.

is fantastic. The clinic does well and that’s the reason we go there. The doctor is very good. We have been going to him for some time and will continue going to him. Overall, I would rate my doctor highly.

The physician's assistant I saw was excellent. Intelligent, caring, compassionate and overall a great practitioner. But the "office" if you can call it that, was abominable. I take some medicines, the same ones, every month. EVERY TIME I needed refills, it took literally over FOURTEEN phone calls to my pharmacy, the Clinic, the pharmacy again, the Clniic -- they would NEVER respond to my pharmacy to authorize refills until I literally flipped out and made a scene (again after 6 or 7 phone calls to my pharmacy to check, AND by my pharmacy to request authorization, AND my calling the Clinic directly to try to get this taken care of). Whenever I called I got a "receptionist" then a "phone nurse" then the "REAL" nurse's voicemail. I was never allowed to talk with anyone directly (either the provider I was seeing, OR her nurse). Absolutely the worst experience in medical care I have ever had. INSANE level of bureaucracy. Again my primary care provider was a physician's assistant who then, for no reason at all except their own cost savings or whatever, they inexplicably transferred her to another facility out of town. I tried seeing another person there (the supervising doctor) but had the same insane problems getting monthly refills. Also they tried to sign me up for some wacky experimental "group" program instead of seeing a regular doctor or assistant. It sounded like a crazy sales pitch and I was hounded by them on the phone for a couple of weeks about it. Their description made no sense. I found another provider and will NEVER have anything to do with ARC again. I do NOT recommend it to anyone!!!

He was on time. Waited 2 minutes in the treatment room before he came in. Prior to him girl took my BP and temp and asked about my meds. He came in and allowed me to ask many questiions. No rush to get me out as many other physicians do.

When I went to the appt, I was told I had to fill out paperwork... exactly the same papers I'd done last time. I wrote my name and DOB, checked No Allergies, and wrote No Change in the other sections (as there were no changes to my personal info or insurance) She had taken my insurance card to copy (again... it is the exact same card I gave them last time) I was told I could not be seen if I did not fill out the paper in complete detail, or if I refused, they'd have to charge me as a cash-pay patient. & would not bill my insurance! This seems overly ridiculous to me. I completely understand the need to verify that info is current and I did that. But to refuse to see me, rather than work with me and maybe copy my old paper... that was too much! The front staff told me "the doctor actually looks at this page." Well, BS. I'm actually a doctor and it is very rare that I need to look at a patient's insurance info/home address, etc. No, I need medical information, not personal info, to see a pt.
I'm very disappointed in this practice and their adherence to "protocol" just for the sake of adhering to protocol (as opposed to doing something because it is right or practical. Now I have to go find another practice to be seen, and what a waste of both my time and theirs. I think compassion starts with the front office staff... they have some work to do in this area.

I selected Dr. Avasia to be my primary care physican and coordinate my medical care. I made an appointment with her for October 27. I have a number of specialist physicians (ear, nose and throat, gynocologist, etc) so I made a list of these doctors and took it by her office one week before my appointment. I signed their release of medical records form and gave them the list. I asked if a week was enough time to receive the records. They assured me it was. On October 27 I showed up and Dr. Avasia told me she had no medical records on me. She asked me if I had signed the medical release of records form. I told her I had but I would sign another one, which I did, along with giving them another list of my doctors. A wasted trip. I made another appointment, for five weeks later so they would have ample time to get my records.
On December 6, I showed up for my exam and asked the assistant if they had my medical records. She said no. When Dr. Avasia came in I explained my two wasted trips and asked her what happened. She said, "Did you sign a medical release form?" It would have been funny if it hadn't been so upsetting. I asked for my copay back and left. I have no idea if Dr. Avasia is a good or bad doctor. She didn't appear to look at my file until she walked in the exam room. If she had she would have noticed that none of my records were there. This is the doctor who is supposed to coordinate all my medical care. It is a very busy office with a loud and crowded waiting room. The staff seems rushed and clearly were inefficient to the point of incompetence.
Stay away! I wish I had.
