I hope this review will help others in the Hawaii community to decide for themselves if they want to choose Nolan Arruda as their physician. I worked for Nolan for several months, and those several months were one of the worst times I have ever had dealing with a difficult physician. I found Nolan Arruda to be arrogant and condescending. This physician also had an LVN who was rude and impatient on the phone with patients. One time, this LVN came out of her office and, instead of explaing that there needed to be a quieter environment, she yelled at the children in the waiting area and told them that "this is not a playground". Why would you yell at children? Friendliness and courtesy of other office staff were definitely poor. Overall, I am glad I resigned from this physician's office because I couldn't stand the rudeness of the people around me, especially Nolan Arruda.
On my last day of the job, he told me what a big mistake I was making, going back to school to become a Registered Nurse.
No, dear. Not a big mistake. I at least made something of myself, served my country and used my skills as a Registered Nurse to care for our wounded soldiers.
You should have treated your nursing staff a lot better. Perhaps that LVN that also worked with you would have been a lot nicer to your patients if you had better manners.
