Patient Comments (5)
in Madisonville, LA |
It was a pleasant visit except for coldness in the office. It was very cold and more like the North Pole.
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.
in Ponchatoula, LA |
Doctor and staff very professional.
in Covington, La |
Dr. Arena provided very personalized care and had a great bedside manner. I have gained a lot of information in my time short time seeing Dr. Arena about how to best take care of my medical condition and prevent complications.
in Covington, LA |
Dr. Arena is great. However, his staff did not fax my daughter's medical documentation in a timely manner.
