I don't think Dr Arakawa cares about patient care anymore. He's too old and if your symptoms don't fall into his 'box' of what his training has told him, he washes his hands of you. Choose a younger more relevant dr who treats patients as a whole person and not just a lab report. FAIL!!

Dr. Arakawa is an excellent diagnostician because he has superb listening and assessment skills. He is the kindest specialist I've ever had............after many experiences with rheumatologists who were too rushed, did not pay attention, did not answer all my questions, did not help what hurt. I am 100% satisfied with him as he has restored my quality of life after 15+ years of fibromyalgia and arthritis pain.
