Ratings for Dr. Monique Araya
We came to Dr. Araya's practice after horrible treatment at UCLA, our son had a near death experience and the dr.'s at UCLA showed very little concern and compassion. We have been very impressed with the distinct differnce at Dr. Araya's. She is warm, knowledgeable and truly interacts with our one-year-old. She always takes time to meet with parents in her office and discuss how the family is doing and she watches your child to ensure they seem okay developmentally, emotionally, etc. She is a parent herself and is just amazing with kids. She also has a great network of specialists that she can and will refer her patients to if issues arise.
Dr. Araya is always kind, warm and very patient with me (a first time mom) and all of my questions. I transferred into this practice over a year ago and could not be happier. She spends more time with me than any doctor I've met in the past, and my daughter just loves her. At this last visit I waited for her for 10 minutes (usually she's in the room in under 5 minutes) and she was completely apologetic for keeping me waiting! We feel so lucky to have found her.
Dr. Araya is a terrific doctor. She is friendly, professional, patient and caring. Our son is only 2 months old but we have been very happy so far. We chose this office not only for the terrific doctors but because of the friendly and knowledgeable staff. The office also has experienced lactation consultants to assist breast feeding mothers. This is a HUGE asset and is not something most offices offer. Dr. Kramer is extremely patient and has a wonderful bedside manner. We have had limited contact with Dr. Whitman but have had a good experience with him as well. The doctors are willing to consider parents concerns regaring immunization schedules and will break out the vaccinations. Many offices won't do that. Overall, we couldn't be happier with our choice and would recommend this office to anyone!
Dr. Araya is warm and friendly, and very knowledgeable. She's willing to have a dialogue with parents, which was key for us, especially with regard to vaccines. I will say that Dr. Whitman in her office AWFUL - the worst doctor I've ever encountered. Rude and just plain mean. Avoid him. The other doctor, Dr. Kramer, is somewhere in between the two.
