After seeing Dr. Arzoo regularly for almost 10 years, I can confirm without reservation that his many awards from the professional community - both for excellence in care, and compassion – are all exceedingly well deserved. Nothing could convince me to change oncologists. Furthermore, during my visits over the years, I have overheard countless waiting room remarks about him, and all his other patients without exception hold him in the same high esteem.

Fabulous doctor really, helped my nephew, if not cured he is unofficially almost cured. Cancer is the one illness I guess that you can never really officially feel cured.

My father was dying from prostate cancer and Dr. Arzoo was the doctor assigned through our hospice. He was INCREDIBLE! He steered us through some dramatic family dynamics and maintained his calm and caring nature through major denials. But the kicker was this, my father took a turn for the worse just before his passing. Dr. Arzoo was away with his family when I called in a despairing panic. He calmed me and made full/compassionate arrangements while out of state & checked back with me. Amazing!

Dr. Arzoo is a wonderful, caring Doctor. He is always thorough and cares a great deal about his patients. He is always willing to spend as much time as necessary with me and explains everything to make sure I'm clear. I feel very comfortable with him and am very fortunate to be under his continuing care.

You gotta give Dr. Arzoo the opportunity to prove that he’s a genius that never stops learning. At first, his bedside manner may seem like he’s not paying attention, but that’s not the case. He always has a plan, knows what he’s talking about and doesn’t mince words. He knows when there’s no time to spare and when a patient needs to relax, take time for themselves and think things through. I also love everyone that works in his office! You saved my life!

Dr. Arzoo is an amazing doctor as well as a human being. He is so gentle and caring and works his butt off to take care of his patients. He is currently treating my mom and I couldn’t ask for a better doctor. His bedside manner is impeccable and he has a calming way about him that helps deal with all sorts of emotions. He doesn’t take forever to get things done. He’s always on top of everything and I feel comfortable with him taking care of the most important person in my life. Loveeee him!!!

Dr. Arzoo is a great Doctor. He noticed that I had a number of issues that my other specialists had decided not to pursue more in depth and just recommended that I test again in 6 months. Dr. Arzoo requested further testing which showed I had some serious issues going on that needed to be dealt with as soon as possible and I am grateful that he wanted to find out what was wrong with me rather than just leave me hanging and in pain for 6 months like the other specialists.

Dr. Arzoo took the time to listen to my extensive medical history and showed compassion and patience when others would be backing out the door on their way to the next patient. By taking the time to review my records and history, he focused on the root cause, not just the symptoms. He clearly explained the rational of his working diagnosis, the approaches we could take as a team and the path we would be traveling at each step of the process.
