Dr. Arcos is the best Dr I have seen in the Edward Network of Dr's. He never rushes you out the door. He takes notes of every visit. He was thourough with explanations to my fiance after surgeries. Alll in all he makes me very comfortable with his detail and dameener

Waiting time in the office was unacceptable ......40 minutes . .....told by nurse it was not unusual for him to be behind schedule. When I did finally see him he was thoughtful, insightful, considerate and did appear to understand what was causing the problem . The condition did not have any an easy solution as expected,however, I was given an explanation of the most likely causes ,and detailed recommendations to at least further reduce the physical difficulty with a month plan to follow and reassurance that the two medications from an internist and an oncologist were wise approaches and to be sure to continue them . His demeanor was excellent and his understanding I thought trust worthy and knowledgeable .
