16/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Frank Arian and his helpful staff are the most welcoming and caring doctors office. I actually moved to Los Angeles two years ago and love them so much I still make the drive every few months to see them. I just can't see myself going to another general practitioner who would care as much as Dr. Arian. They've really become like family.

16/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Frank Arian and his staff have been more helpful, courteous, considerate and efficient than any other doctor or his staff I have ever used. I have never felt rushed or ignored during any appointment and I have had things explained to me in terms which I can easily understand. I am sorry to say that due to financial considerations I am changing to an HMO to which he does not belong. He and his staff have a way of making me feel comfortable and reassured that all of my needs are being met and that he will not stop striving to make me healthier. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

23/11/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Arien has doggedly per sued my partner's BP until he finally got it under control. He didn't give up until he accomplished this. No other physician has ever spent the time and attention on this problem, the way that Dr. Arien has done. I've never waited in the office for the visit, Josephina, his office staffer, couldn't be more helpful and responds quickly and efficiently. Dr. Arien talks to me about my conditions, and adds perspective with the most recent literature, as well as a wide knowledge about the research. I am very happy we found him, and I highly recommend him as your personal physician.

08/09/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Arian was recommended to us by one of the Desert's most prestigious  medical specialists and we are glad.  His appointments are informal yet very professional.  The exams are careful and highly screened.  Everything is explained and all our questions and concerns are answered.  And most important for us, as our family doctor, Dr. Arian maintains a large network of the top Desert specialists to meet all our health needs.

05/09/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Arian and Josephina make a great team. I have lived in the desert for 5 years and finally found a doctor / office that respects your time and cares about your issues. You never have to wait and are given plenty of time to discuss any health concerns you may have.

16/08/13 5 5 5 5 I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Frank Arian for the outstanding care I have received. I moved to the Coachella Valley approximately five years ago from Reno, Nevada. I was lucky enough to choose Dr. Arian for my family practice doctor based on an advertisement I saw in a local publication. I found in Dr. Arian to be someone I can trust and work with easily. He was instrumental in the early diagnosis of my malignant melanoma as well as my prostate cancer. Through him I was referred to wonderful doctors for successful treatment of both these cancers. I find Dr. Arian to be professional, friendly and thorough. His approach to health care is sensible and I am always given the opportunity to ask as many questions as I need. I never feel pushed through my office visit. Dr. Arian treats me like I'm his only patient. I am currently enjoying excellent health and hope to remain Dr. Arian's patient for many years to come.

18/07/13 5 5 5 5 Best Doctor I've ever had. Has always been on time...I've never had to wait at all, and that is unheard of with Doctors. He is outrageously thorough...checked everything out during my initial visit...and better yet, he spent over an hour with me going over all of my results and explaining what each test was, what normal results should be, what my results were, and why that particular item is important. Josefina works with him beautifully, and always gives great customer service

27/10/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Arian os one of the most curtious doctors I have ever known. He is never late for an appointment, which lets you know that he feels your time is just as valuable as his. He is also very meticulous taking his time in examining you treating your health issues and makes a conscientious effort to explain to you in detail what your health problem is and how best to treat it. I recommend him highly.  Respond

04/04/12 5 5 5 5 I finally found a doctor who I can relate to. I was able to establish an immediate rapport with Dr. Arian and really liked his approach to my many complicated issues. He is the most personable but professional doctor I have ever met and I am so grateful to my friend who sent me to him. This office rocks. I go right in the door when I walk in. He comes right in without delay. He doesnt rush me. He listens to all my symptoms and takes notes as he goes. He gives me diagnoses and explains why he needs certain tests and what he is looking for. His staff gives me complete instructions before I leave as to who is going to call who etc. I rate their care as 100/100. I just cannot imagine anywhere they could improve. I have no qualms recommending this doctor or office. Its a winner!  Respond

12/01/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Arian is a great physician, he has been my pain management and primary care doctor for about 3 years now. Everytime I go in there I can expect nothing but professional service. There is never a wait longer than 10 minutes, and the staff, as well as Dr. Arian, are exceptional. It is nice to walk into a doctor's office and know that you will be taken care of.

09/01/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Arian has proved to be a very good General Physician for me. His most important attribute is his willingness to talk, listen and help with understand the general condition of my health. As a GP I don't expect him to know in detail every possible problem but he has been an excellent guide when I have needed one. If you are an open person willing to talk and share I think Dr. Arian will be a good experience for you. If that's not you, perhaps you would do better elsewhere.

02/01/12 5 5 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Arian since I moved to the desert in 2009, and have been amazed by his level of professionalism, caring, and sincerity. He is always on time, yet still has plenty of time to listen. He allows me to be an active participant in my own health care. He's never offended if I ask questions or make suggestions. Dr. Arian provides "boutique" medical care at prices that ordinary people can afford.

24/11/09 2 2 2 2 Doesn't like to have anything he does questioned. Geat office though. The office itself is very interesting to see because of all of the WWII stuff. Even if your not a WWII buff, his office is worth seeing! I like that you don't have to have an appointment but as for the doctor himself, I don't like one that I can't question or that won't allow me to explain why I ask questions that other patients probably wouldn't ask.

22/05/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Arian is a warm and caring physician. His staff is fabulous from the front office back to the lab. The wait is a bit long but worth it. He takes a great amount of time with his patients and I love the convenience of not having to run around for blood work etc. If you want a doctor who has a wonderful bed side manner then Dr. Arian is the right man. I will definitely return and refer my friends. He's great.

30/03/09 4 5 5 4 Very unusual doc- compassionate, instant rapphor. After 3 ER visits, he diagnosed problem because he's patient. Doesn't have appts, only walk-ins, even for re gulars. Good staff. Maybe getting a bit busy. Nobody's perfect, that's why he doesn't a perfect score. Watch out, he loves WW II history, and his office shows it! :)
