    Simply the best, he is compassionate and extremely knowledgeable.
    in Freeport, NY |
    Dr. Arena is a very dedicated and compassionate physician. The level of care is above average and I trust his judgement completely. Getting an appointment with him is a little difficult because he has multiple locations and is very busy, but worth it. He explained things clearly and helped me through a very difficult time. The NPs and PAs in his office are all great. The staff at the infusion center are among the most dedicated, caring nurses I've ever encountered. Office staff needs some work.

    Dr. Arena and his team are professional, qualified and caring. The wait time can be frustrating, but the level of care you receive is exceptional. My mom has been Dr. Arena's patient since April and we are all grateful to have found him and his practice. His diagnosis and treatment are accurate and they always stay on top of the side effects and follow ups. He is very careful and runs plenty of tests. The infusion center is staffed with angles, who show an exertional care for their patient

    Exceptional education, and training...numerous awards, and recognition from professional and community institutions. The Best!
    New York, NY |
    2 hour waits past the actual scheduled appointment time virtually every time we visited (my wife was his patient) is simply disrespectful and we can't be the only patients who had this experience. So we switched to another oncologist. Other than that, he is a very nice man. Seems very qualified and experienced.

    His bedside manner was awesome and he explained everything to me with such patience I was impressed. I felt very confident about his diagnosis and left his office feeling reassured that he was as thorough as can be.
