Great Doctor

Dr Arof has been my doctor for the last 9 years, He knows his stuff. I do not have children and do not intend to ever become pregnant and he has looked after me and my medical issues as they arise. I am in my 50's. "Highly" recommend him to be your GYN.

Awful and arrogant jerk.

I can't even begin to describe how arrogant and dismissive this doctor is. Reading other patients' reviews only confirms my own opinion: IF you are pregnant or want to become pregnant, this may be the doctor for you. BUT if you have ovaries and a uterus but do not want to be pregnant STAY AWAY FROM THIS JERK. He absolutely does not care about you. It is really upsetting. But gynecologists are a dime a dozen and I've found one who does seem to care. Arof is a money grubbing. And his staff is horrific also. I had an appointment with him and an ultrasound. I drove down to the office, paid $29 for parking and he wasn't even there. He had been called off for an emergency (read delivery) and his staff didn't even bother to call and tell me. I had the ultrasound and then had to schedule another appointment to see Arof. All he want is money. Be careful.

Dr. Arof was born for this career! He is the kindest, most compassionate MD I have ever had the privilege to be a patient of. He was recommended to me by a good friend and I am thrilled that I took her advice and made Dr. Arof my OB/GYN. Dr. Arof, you rock!
