Ratings for Dr. Elaine M. Arata
Was recommended to Dr. Arata by another excellent Doctor. She has been superb with my wife's difficult health issues and excellent with my simpler health as well. The office is well managed, appointments start within five minutes of their scheduled time and you are through the process with grace and efficiency.
I am surprised by the good comments. I saw this MD as a referral from a coworker (we are both healthcare providers), and it took me 2yrs to get an appointment b/c she wasn't seeing new patients. Finally got an appointment, for a well-visit / preventative care visit ONLY, except this did not include PAP smear / female check-up. The visit was average at best. A few months later, I got a bill in the mail for the full cost of the visit, because my insurance was billed as an outpatient/sick visit. I called the office to have the billing codes changed (I thought it was a simple error). So they did without problem, and I thought nothing more of it until I got a PERSONAL letter from Dr. Arata, stating that what she spent a lot of time with me, so she needed to bill more, and if I didn't like it, she would resubmit it as a preventative care visit (which it was) and I could see another physician because our "healthcare philosophies differ." They do differ, because I don't believe in fraud.
