I had the pleasure of being a patient of Dr. Arla about 5 yrs ago. I lost my insurance and was only able to see her as a cash patient. Thank goodness I got my coverage back. I was so happy when I found out that Dr. Arla accepted my insurance. She takes her time with you. She listens. She works with as a partner in your healthcare needs.

Dr. Arla is among the finest doctors I've had the pleasure of seeing. She is caring and competent and has an almost laser like focus on what you're telling her and a near photographic recall of the medical principles needed to accurately diagnose and treat illness and disease. Her continuing education is current and evident in her practice. I would recommend her to family and friends, and have asked her to consider accepting my daughter as she transitions from pediatric to adult care. Top notch doctor!
