Best doctor ever! Big fan :)
The doctor is very friendly I had to see him for depression and anxiety. He listened to me and my wife and has precribed me the medication for 3 weeks. He had a training doctor and i was good to listen in to the prognosis he gave to her . I am looking forward to being depression free and hopefull he is able to help me.
Dr. Arena was great! Got down to the route of the problem right away. The first prescription of antibiotics I received just were not working out for me, all I had to do was call in and they were quick to send over a new prescription to my pharmacy. I will definitely be going back in the future!
