Philosophy Of Care

Patients seen for weight management: ages 15 and under
Patients seen for family medicine: all ages

I’m passionate about sharing patient education as the foundation of our relationship and in providing patients the tools needed for them to make the best decisions for their health. Wellbeing and disease prevention are achieved when body, mind and environment are all optimal and in harmony. This lifestyle focus is key to my approach in treating all my patients and families, especially those struggling with childhood obesity.

Dr. Ariza has been amazing since I first started seeing her. I have had a multitude of medical issues, from ...- she has always provided the necessary immediate help, made sure to get me into specialty care doctors for the necessary issues, and her follow up each time is incredible. She is supportive, easy to talk to, trustworthy and truly dedicated to the health and welfare of her patients. I recommend her on a regular basis and will continue to do so. The receptionists are always friendly and attentive, and the nurses are just as friendly, thoughtful, attentive, helpful and overall amazing. With all my medical issues, I have never had such positive, helpful care and experiences. My gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Ariza, ... (pa), Dr. ..., all the nurses, receptionists and lab techs of this office is off the charts, and I am very happy this survey may give them the credit they so completely deserve.

Doc kept it pretty short. Listened to what I had to say. Didn't push anything on me. Only gave suggestions and when I was hesitant gave me reading material to read through to make my decision. I have to say this is my first positive experience with a doctor in a very very long time.
