Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Arena "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."

Patient Comments (6)
I don't think anyone who thinks this doctor is good knows what a good doctor is. Force of personality doesn't make for a good doctor. Insecurity is not a good sign. And he rushes. He also seems to like to listen to himself talk and really needs to listen more to the patient. A good talker also doesn't mean one knows their medicine. Staff is nice but not bright and can't have that in medicine. Then again, the alternatives are equally unimpressive. If I knew of another doctor, I'd go there.

Horrible office staff. They are rude and incompetent. Will not return calls or assist patients. They yell on phone and hang up on you. Do not waste your money and time here.
in Deerfield Beach, FL |
Dr. Arena has been my mothers doctor for over fifteen years. He listens and always treats her with kindness and respect. He is now my doctor as well and i would recommend him to anyone. And two thumbs up for Sonaly!
in Pompano Beach, FL |
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.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
He explains exactly how to Phentermine and talks about maintaing a good diet and excerise. He only prescribes it if you are over weight.
in Boynton Beach, FL |
He took time to listen and diagnosed me with great care. His office staff was nice and helpful. It was a great experience.
