I recently had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Arcarese purely by coincidence when I went to the Chippenham ER with chest pains. I feel I was one of the lucky ones that was attended by Dr. Arcarese. I could not have asked for a better doctor. During these uncertain times he took the time to talk with my wife and include her in the decision making process. The procedures I had are probably commonplace but his manner put us at ease. Dr. Arcarese was very attentive while I was in the hospital and genuinly cared about my recovery. I have been to Cardilogy Associates of Richmond's office twice since release and the staff was great. Appointments were on time the staff was very friendly and accomidating. Hopefully you would be able to choose your Cardiologist but if not maybe you would be lucky like I was. I highly reccomend Cardiology Associates of Richmond.

I have been a patient four over 4 years. Dr Arcaresse is a no nonsense type of Guy who is strait forward. He asks questions, listens to your answers and recommends possible solutions. He does not push his suggestions, rather he explains benefits and risks and leaves the decision to you. I have full faith and confidence in his abilities and would recommend him to anybody.

First time visit for myself although my wife has been a patient for several years. Found the staff I interacted with to be very professional and efficient. Dr Arcarese was very professional and all of addressed my questions and concerns. The only negative complaint would be that it would be more efficient if new patients could fill our the medical history and other forms for new patients online ahead of time instead of by hand sitting in the waiting room.

I have been a patient of Dr. Arcarese since 2014. Throughout this time, I have experienced nothing but the highest level of care and found Dr. Arcarese and every member of the staff including the receptionists, nurses, PA's, clinical staff and others to be exceptionally friendly, highly competent, patient-focused, and excellent communicators. I have never left the office with an unanswered question or concern. Every question is fully answered and obvious efforts are made to ensure that the clinicians unddrstand the question and I understand the answer. I recommend this physician, his associates, and this practice without reservation.

I met Dr. Acareese 10 years ago while recovering from open-heart valve replacement surgery at Chippenham Hospital. I agreed upon talking with him that I would become a post-op continuing patient and have been in his care continuously since then. I am extremely pleased with his knowledge, speedy response to health and med changes, and his obvious personal concern for me and my well-being. I commend him without reservation or qualification. I feel very indebted to him for his service.

My annual checkup went very well. My checkup was preceded by an echo scan conducted in the office. The technician performing the echo was exceptional. She explained everything involved in the echo, and shared information when I asked questions. The planned checked followed with Dr. Arcarese explaining the echo results. Dr. Arcarese's was great. He reviewed my notes and asked me a number of questions. He listened and he explained. That combination made for a great visit.
