Dr. Joel A. Aronowitz Has The Best Place To Get A Colonoscopy In Los Angeles! This Is Definitely The Place That You Need To Be At! I have been here before in the past for my Colonscopy which is always performed by Doctor Dale Prokupek and the Service that I receive here is always Exceptional and of Excellent Quality! When you walk into their office, you will be greeted by Jessica in the Front Office or Precious or Vanessa who are Doctor Aronowitz's Receptionists. From there, they will hand you a detailed booklet to fill out which has various questions such as what medications you are taking if any, do you have any existing health conditions, have you had any major surgeries in the past, etc. During my visit, I was also assisted by Karen, their Technician and I also had Sylvia as my Nurse during my procedure. After I filled out the paperwork, I was eventually escorted into a room to change to get ready for my procedure. I was then asked to go into a room and lie down and get ready for the Needle and eventually I was knocked out. During my procedure, I had the BEST care possible and within about an hour, I woke up! Unfortunately, when I woke up, my stomach was hurting so much, however, the Nurse and my Doctor both gave me Instructions on how to get rid of the pain and within about another hour, it was Gone! While I was waiting for the pain in my stomach to go away, one of Doctor Aronowitz's assistants also gave me a copy of the pictures of my Colonoscopy Exam Images for my review and they were quite interesting to look at because it shows you exactly where my hemorrhoid was and that was good to know even though I was Not crazy about looking at these type of pictures. Hee Hee. After that, they asked me to wait around for several hours since I did Not have a ride home and that was Not a problem with me because I had my Android with to keep me company. Overall, everything went well and I more than Highly Recommending the office of Joel Aronowitz, MD for Your Next Colonoscopy or whatever you might need. Thank you.
Dr. Aronowitz has been doing my Botox and Juvederm for the past few years and I have never been happier with a doctor! I moved here from New York and had always gone to a cosmetic dermatologist but when I heard about Dr. Aronowitz from a friend I came in to meet him. Both he and his staff made me feel welcome and treated me like a VIP (i'm not, that's just how they treat everyone :)) I have even started Cool Sculpting treatments this year and LOVE my new figure! I'm keeping this doctor in my books for when I get older and need surgery!
I had a similar bad experience. There are lots of unhappy patients, complaining about the same issues. I wished I had seen these reviews before going to him. Has anyone filed a complaint with the medical Board of CA or taken legal action against this doctor?
Dr. Aronowitz was recruited by my ocular plastic surgeon to add stem cell fat grafts. Dr. Aronowitz did not perform most of the procedures he was paid for. The few he did were done incompletely and carelessly, such as my ear. His O.R. Report even misstated the ear deformity. The only time he spends time with the patient is with the "sell." His pre-op consisted of explaining the procedure, not careful examination, & post-ops are rushed to "4 minute" hurry-ups so he can squeeze in more surgeries. He would not release the Operating Room Report until 3 months later, following my lawyer's call. The O.R. Report tried to shift blame for his non-performance on my mental state -- all easily disprovable lies and irrelevant! He even claimed he had talked to my psychiatrist, who had never heard of him, nor talked to him. This dr. not only doesn't care for his patients, he takes no responsibility for his actions and lies to cover up his lack of care and non-performance of procedures.
I booked a breast aug with Dr. Aronowitz to fix a tubular deformity. The day after the surgery, I noticed that one breast was significantly larger than the other (one B cup and D cup). I called the office, and was told Dr. Aronowitz had left for vacation. When he returned a week later, he said one breast was only swollen, and that I should get massage sessions from a woman in his office to make the swelling go down. The massages were $225/session! After realizing the massages weren't helping, he agreed to do a revision. I was already $11,000 down, so I asked about the cost of revision surgery. I was told that Dr. Aronowitz would waive his fee, but I would pay "a maximum of a few hundred dollars for the anesthesia and surgery room costs." I got the revision surgery. I then got a first bill for $2,000, and a second bill for $3,000. I was told that I would have to pay, or they would submit to collections. If you choose Aronowitz, watch your wallet.
Opration to lift breasts after implants removed. After operation, I looked no different than before operation. I paid for a second operation. In this second operation, he did what we agreed upon to the right breast, but not to left breast. He took out a very large amount of tissue, even though we agreed not to have tissue removed. After operation I had a serious infection with high fever in the left breast, the one he gutted. It was swollen to immense proportions, and red and hot. Due to the extent that he deformed left breast, I went through three additional operations to correct deformity Since he removed huge amount of tissue from left breast, it is smaller and deformed. I am so unhappy with myself, and have been depressed ever since. I have no idea what he was thinking when he did this. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone.
All of the reviess made in June are written by his staff. He makes you wait over an hour for each appointment. His staff liesd to me about what would be included with my surgery. I woke up from surgery only getting half of what I was told I would, and still had to pay the whole amount. They are a bunch of scam artists!!!
