Care Philosophy

It has always been my practice to treat patients with the compassion and courtesy they deserve.  Patients have personal lives that are intimately attached to their physical health and I always keep this in mind when speaking with them.  My approach is based on listening to the patients needs rather than first imposing my recommendations.

I always encourage patients to invite their family members or significant others when necessary.  This allows for a more relaxed environment when making difficult medical decisions.

Humor has been and always will be an integral part of the office environment.  I want my patients to know that I come from a humble upbringing filled with joy and laughter.

When it comes to advising patients of terminal illnesses, I treat them and their families with the respect and compassion that is appropriate. 

I believe our office stands out for it's moral character, and friendly manner with which we treat our family of patients.

Dr Arena treated our 98 year old dad with compassion and complete care. He is thorough, explains everything in detail, goes the extra mile. His staff is equally caring and efficient.
