As a local Oncologist in the area, I had the opportunity to work with Dr Arai on a number of difficult cancer cases and was always impressed not only with his surgical expertise, but his professional manner and courtesy. When the shoe was on the other foot, and I needed to have bowel surgery for a benign condition, I selected to have my surgery with Dr Arai. His outstanding local reputation is well deserved. I recommend him highly.
