Dr. Robert G. Arias's Ratings
Dr. Arias was egotistical, rude and arrogant during my meetings with him. I was being evaluated for a neurostimulator implant but it seemed like he was running us through his business model in an effort to increase his bottom line. I felt as though there was a conflict of interest with his practice and the referring pain clinic. My wife accompanied me to hear his explanation of his recommendations, and she was as shocked as I was. He based little of his recommendations on the the previous 5-hour testing, which was often interrupted by other stall members using the printer in the test room. (When we arrived for our second appointment there were no staff members present and he didn't even know why we were there.) He continually cited clinical studies and had no interest in our opinions. He called my previous psychiatric care "awful" and "unethical" and used foul language during our appointment. His loathing of psychiatry as a tool for treating mental health was evident. Definitely a "my way or the highway" guy and I would never recommend him for any kind of treatment or advice.
Helped me see beyond my own barriers. The Dr. does initially come across as abrasive if you are used to the coddling type of therapists, but I found him to be a breathe of fresh air. He will call it like it is, even if that is not what you want to hear. If you want honesty and you are willing to put in the effort Dr Arias will help you through, but he has no patience if you refuse to do the work. I learned a lot about myself.
I was referred to Dr Arias because of memory and emotional problems after being involved in a serious automobile accident. I was diagnosed with a Traumatic Brain Disorder(TBI) due to the accident. This was confirmed by doctors treating me for other issues. Also I have ongoing pain due to a knee that was shattered. I have been very happy with Arias and his staff. I appreciate that he is honest and realistic with his evaluations and suggestions. Under his guidance there have been significant improvements in my coping abilities, mood and outlook on life. With Aria's help I have been able to come to peace with living my life with chronic pain and diminished cognitive/memory abilities. I am happy and productive. Arias and his staff have consistently been on time, highly professional and helpful with the insurance companies. Two thumbs up for Dr Arias.
He set up scenarios for failure by constant interruptions by other staff which made it impossible to concentrate on the test. When I asked if the interruptions could stop I was then tagged personality disordered. Loathsome man with superior air. He cares nothing for me as a patient and strove to injure me, control me and made opportunity for my relative to rob me out while making a handsome living.
The doctor was nice at first but soon took a superior attitude and was judgmental and rude. He didn't seem to like me, or show interest in me. He offered no suggestions to improve my depression. He indicated he thought I was lazy. I feel he liked to use power over me and just ran up bills unnecessarily. I got over the depression on my own steam and in spite of him!
Staff did not inform us our insurance would not cover MMPI. Insurance companies often refuse to tell if they will cover a proceedure or test until after it is done, BCBS is one. However, the staff has ample history with BCBS to predict the outcome if BCBS will or won't cover & did not tell us. We found the Dr to be unhelpful, defensive every time he was asked a question, and repeated a very expensive test that was done just a short time before, for no reason, which cost us the full amount of money a second time with insurnace not covering. When asked to see the results of the test, he refused to give them to me, said rude, arrogant, spiteful things to myself & my husband during the follow up appointment. Test was done to assess eligible for a neuro stimulator, and I felt the Dr. Was more interested in increasing his #'s in therapy than assess eligibility for the neurotransmitter. there is a conflict of interest in the neuro stimulator testing & his gaining clients for therapy.
