I couldn’t be more grateful of Dr. Arnaout. I was taken to the emergency room unbearable pain after 4 days of agony trying to medicate myself. He performed an emergency procedure after some testing done. Along with his team he performed a remarkable surgery and guided me all along. His care and kindness make me believe that heroes are real. Dr. Arnaout is one of my heroes and God blessings be always available for him ????I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Sixteen years ago Dr. Arnaout saved my life after I suffered severe acute gallstone pancreatitis with pseudocyst. He performed three surgeries over a two year period and miraculously I am still alive, active, healthy and happy to be able to share this amazing experience with you! I truly don't think anyone else could have given me my life back! Thank you so much Dr. Arnaout!

Dr. Arnaout is amazing. He performed a whipple surgery on my mother 8 years ago with excellent results. She is now 88 and still very active. Dr Arnaout was always very professional, friendly, and encouraging. We cannot thank him enough for what he did for our mother!!!
