Dr. Arani's website does not state anywhere that he will charge anything but $20 for service & $20 for most medications. I was lied to on the phone when I called in to ask about the price of the medications ($5-$20). When I arrived down at the clinic, the receptionist stated that the medication cost could be $20-$90. They also wanted $65 upfront to do a throat culture. I didn't even have a sore throat. I only had $35 on me so I left without treatment after filling out all the necessary paperwork. I didn't even receive a call from the doctor apologizing about the experience. His website is a false advertisement and very deceptive. I believe that his positive reviews here are not from actual patients. They sound way too scripted. Great doctors mostly work off referrals, they don't advertise on GoogleAds. They also don't need testimonials. Their work speaks for itself. If Dr. Arani was so compelled by his mother's experience at County he wouldn't be bilking the unsuspecting & sick in need

I went in to get a quote for treatment of my genital warts, there was a $20 office visit fee up front in order to speak with him. I had previously been diagnosed with having HPV elsewhere. I wanted to know what treatment methods he provided and how much it was going to cost. After evaluating the infected areas, Dr. Ariani said that it was going to cost $130 to treat each wart. I had about 7 or 8 according to him. Dr. Arani would not accept insurance for this treatment, so I would have to pay the entire cost by myself. Knowing well that most people coming to him wouldn't be able to afford his costs, he insists on having you pay $20 up front, so if anything he gets that at out of you at least. And what did it for me in the end was how he pulled out this photo album book of previously treated patients as I was leaving, showing me before and after pictures in front of his staff and other waiting patients. I couldn't believe the low caliber of discretion they practiced at their clinic.

busy office. Had to wait a while to be seen but he seems to be worth the wait. Doesn't rush your visit. Friendly, personable. Seems to be very knowledgeable and they gave me my test result same day in about 1/2 hour. After being diagnosed with HPV I researched for months and decided to go to Arani . It wasn't offered locally so I talked with a number of doctors around, finally deciding on Dr. Arani. he performed the surgery and everything went very well, without complications. My recovery was swift and relatively pain free. I’m very pleased with the outcome to date and very satisfied with my experience with him. He tells you exactly what will happen, what to expect, and why. He is very direct and to-the-point..

Today I went for my final test for my Hiv and STD test. It was negative. It had been over a year since the last risk encounter. It had been a worst year in my whole life. Fortunately, I found Dr. Arani and he helped me through this horrible year. So as all the nurses in this clinic had been a great support for me. He is not only my doctor, but my friend and my psychiatrist. I would like to have all my thank to Dr. Arani and nurses. 100% recommend to everyone who need an excellent Infectious Desease Specialist who is more than just doctor, but friend. Patient L J

I went to Dr. arani for the first time 4 months ago. He came highly recommended due to his knowledge and helpfulnes. I found him to be just like that! He was very patient and answering all of my questions clearly. Dr. arani is smart. He takes his time and is very diligent about answering all of my questions. His office staff also is very helpful and accommodating. I never felt like he was rushed or unconvinced as I have in other offices. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who was looking for a very caring doctor. His office is well maintained and the biggest appeal is his ability to answer every phone call and rarely do I ever have to leave any messages. From West Los Angeles

I should say that Dr. arani is one of the best MDs we have used, and I am really hard on grading anything. He's helpful, current and up to date, and answers all myself and my husband questions thoroughly. We give him an A . After all I have never been to a doctor office that even compares to him He is the most personable and giving doc I have ever seen. Nona and Michael

Just to go to ER gave me bill for $1240.00 and perscription to buy for another $145.00. so couple of hundreds for doctor vist tests and medicines is fair to me if you do not have insurance. Few times I got perscription from him for thyroid medicine and I bought it from online drugstore from canada and he was very helpful. Dr. Arani is one of the best Dr.'s that I have ever seen. He responds almost immediately to my calls. You would be very lucky to have this knowledgable, great and caring person as your physician.

He expects you to buy medicine from him and will insist you pay for it all before you leave. A $20 visit turned out to be more costly having to pay almost $200 because he insists on his medicine. His medicine costs more than what the price should be. Look up the costs at drugstore.com or any other pharmacy online. Costs even more than Canadian imported medicine. His staff is clueless, even one staff member was annoyed because her coworkers were messing around.

What a wonderful person, for someone like myself without health insurance. I could not afford $135 doctor office visit or $1000 emergency room bill. He examined me and gave me prescription for my badly infected cold sore outbreak for just $20. He checked my my blood sugar at no charge when I asked him (my family have diabetic) . I think he has a great heart to help poor people. His office visit is low enough and I think it is unfair to ask him to do free blood test and I do not think any private clinic or hospital do any services for ?free?. My first visit was as successful as it could possibly have been and I am so thankful I found Dr. Arani and his awesome staff were very friendly .

He is a very good doctor. He diagnosed my condition which has been treated by different doctors for 4 months without any success, and I was better in 2 days. He is believed to be a miracle worker by some of my friends, and I agree with them now. I wish all doctors were more like him I will go back for sure.
