Absolutely one of the nicest most professional surgeons I've encountered. Really had reservations after reading a bad review but decided to meet with him and form my own opinion. I've had surgeries before and must say I count him among the best. Thanks for your professionalism, your jokes and completely putting my family and I at ease. Would definitely recommend Dr. Arciero with absolutely no hesitation. P. Hendrix-Woodard

To start off with his bedside manner is horrendous and his skills as a doctor are questionable to say the least. His botched surgery has left my body disfigured and infected. I've been told it will take years to fix by what has been done under Dr. Arcerero's care but thank God I'm under true professional care now. Please be careful if you choose Dr. Arciero.
I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with our doctor patient relationship or the outcome of surgical treatment. There are times when the aggressiveness of the disease (specifically cancer) dictates the surgery and impacts the healing process. I am happy to hear that you have found a provider you are comfortable with and certainly wish you all the best.
