Dr. Aranda was wonderful! He was extremely supportive and explained everything thoroughly. He answered all of our questions and addressed our concerns. He was amazing with our daughter and she really likes him. If she ever needs any procedures in the future we definitely will request Dr. Aranda!

Dr ordered and ultrasound (just to give us extra knowledge our son didn’t need surgery) and he called us as soon as he got the ultrasound back letting us know everything was fine! Great Doctor!
