Dr. Arcarese is extremely knowledgeable and skilled, while being down-to-earth, friendly and unpretentious. My two office visits and one procedure went smoothly. Everyone in his office and hospital staff were equally friendly, professional, and caring.

I would like to tell you of my experience with Dr. Arcarese on my first visit. I had fluid in my chest from open heart surgery and two other doctor visits with other physicians did not diagnose my condition. Dr. Arcarese found the problem and ordered the procedures to correct my problem. I would highly recommend him as a qualified cardiologist.

Known him for several years because my dad was his patient. He has a very warm personality, listens and answers all questions. My visit ended with good test results but will definitely turn to him the next time there is a need.

I unequivocally recommend Dr. Arcarese. I've been his patient for five years and found him to be highly professional, personable, thorough, empathetic, and, very importantly, despite being very busy, he takes the time to really listen. In addition, I've found both his clinical and support staffs are equally professional and efficient.

I met Dr. Arcarese the first time today. What a pleasure! He has a warm personality, takes time to listen and explains health conditions in very detail. I am looking forward to see him again in six months. Based on this experience he is highly recommended.

He genuinely seems to care about the patient (you) as well as render care for you. In my many encounters with him in varied situations, her is always understanding, through, and never rushed. I’m comfortable with the care I receive. The staff could not be better. A positive experience all around.

Dr. Arcarese and his staff have been extremely helpful as I am entering my 29th year after my first of five heart attacks and multiple heart cath’s. His constant close monitoring of my condition, clear explanations and the introduction of the newest medications have given me confidence that although I will always have heart disease, I will be able to live a normal life with minimal limitations. At age 71 I continue to play golf on a weekly basis. Thx doc.

Dr. Arcarese is a no nonsense, highly skilled heart Doctor! After my fourth stent I found myself in a very physically challenging situation that taxed my heart more than it will be taxed again! (I am 64 yrs old!) I was able to recover and complete my task all due to Dr. Arcareses's skills! I for one will not be looking for another heart Doctor! Thanks again Dr. Arcarese!!!

As a cardiac nurse this is the practice I chose for my husband after he had coronary artery bypass surgery. Years later when my husband had a heart attack on the golf course, Dr. Arcarese placed multiple stents that were needed. My husband continues to attend out patient cardiac rehab @ Chippenham Hospital 2 times wk conveniently located across the hall from this office. Dr. A recently performed my cardiac cath. As a cardiac nurse & his patient I confidently recommend Dr. A. to friends & family.

Dr. Arcarese is very friendly and takes time with me every visit. He askes questions and listens to what I have to say. He checks up on me after a procedure to make sure I am doing okay.

Although Dr. Acarese is not the cardiologist I normally see, he graciously stepped in when my doctor was unexpectedly unavailable. He demonstrated interest in my plan of care and discussed options for dealing with my condition. I appreciated his thoughtful responses and that he took the time to understand the impact my experiences have on my life.
