Dr. Arroliga listens. She understands the importance of quality of life and helps people achieve the best results from medications to control allergies without overmedicating. She takes the time to be sure you understand how to use the medications and any changes to procedures for using the medications. She is concerned about the patient\'s overall health and preventive steps needed to maintain health.

This doctor is amazing! She was very patient and caring. She explained everything to me thoroughly and made sure my son was well taken care of. This is the best provider we have encountered at Scott & White. The staff was extremely friendly and the allergy nurse was very professional and kind to my children. Huge thank you to the Allergy team!

All the staff was very nice. The doctor listened to my concerns and tested what I believed my son was allergic to. While testing, she made sure to put us in a room where my son would be entertained. When the tests came back negative, she talked with me and we came up with a plan for figuring out what my son\'s rashes were from. She seemed like she was going to be very easy to get a hold of and to talk to after the visit. She gave me several options of experimenting with foods at home or in the office, whatever I felt most comfortable with. I was very pleased with the experience.

Dr. Arroliga is very hard to understand. There is somewhat of a language barrier. She could work on her bedside manner. When patients come to see her, it is because patients are searching for answers to issues they are dealing with.

I\'m very disappointed. the appointment went ok but the doctor did not test for the one thing we were there for. I even asked her to do it before testing began. it made the appointment feel like a waste of time and my child went through unnecessary testing rather than get answers we needed
