in Mandeville, LA |
I was admitted to Lakeview hospital on Feb. 19 with panic attack symptoms. Dr. Arena was the cardiologist and ordered a echo and nuclear stress test. It was reassuring to know that my heart was okay. He has a wonderful bedside manner and I would highly recommend him if you need a cardiologist.

Dr. Arena is great. However, his staff did not fax my daughter's medical documentation in a timely manner.
