About Dr. Arora

Philosophy of care

The most important thing I can do for you is to determine the exact source of your pain. There are multiple pain generators throughout the spine and an accurate diagnosis is crucial in determining the best treatments. I will accomplish this by performing a comprehensive history/exam and utilizing meticulously performed diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. To help you, I believe in performing high-quality and evidence-based spine interventions using a multidisciplinary approach to managing pain. This can include utilizing injections, medications, physical therapy and manipulation.

Why I entered medicine

Like most physicians, I entered medicine to help people. Throughout medical school, I found that pain was a significant limitation for patients, functionally as well as psychologically. I chose physical medicine and rehabilitation with a focus on improving patients' quality of life and function through a multidisciplinary treatment approach. I further specialized in interventional spine care to offer more ways to achieve that goal.

Community involvement

I have presented on various spine topics locally and at national meetings. Currently I'm the spine physician for Lehigh University, providing care for Division 1 athletes.

Personal interests

I enjoy spending time with my family, golfing, traveling, exercising, watching and playing sports.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
