As a prac­tic­ing physi­cian, I build treat­ment plans along­side my patients through a shared-deci­sion mak­ing approach. I under­stand that each patient is unique and has her own goals. I like to start each encounter by ask­ing about their main goals for the vis­it; this allows us to work effi­cient­ly while also ensur­ing that her own con­cerns and ques­tions are addressed. I under­stand that there are many ways to prac­tice med­i­cine and thus I like to teach patients what the most updat­ed research and evi­dence shows, in order for them to be able to make informed deci­sions regard­ing their care.

"Dr. Ariel is the best doctor I have ever had. She has supported any decision I have wanted and has never made me feel dramatic when I report a symptom I have. She explains everything with great detail and is extremely kind. I never want to see another gynecologist."

"Instructions for next steps weren't explained very clearly. Example: I was told labs were needed to be drawn, but wasn't given an order for labs or asked where I'd like to have them performed. Also, I wasn't given clear instructions on whether I needed to be fasting or not. I had to call back the next day to obtain more information"

"From making the appointment to being seeing and treated was an excellent experience, both the assistant and the doctor were very good at what they do, listening, answering questions clearly and treating the problem correctly. And the follow up after the visit to check on the meds and test results. It has been a long while since I received this quality of care. "
