Ratings for Dr. Frank P. Arena
Dr Arena listened to what I said and did not push medicines or treatments I did not need. I found him to be extremely attentive to listening to my needs and complaints, he even noticed something other doctors did not about my feet. I am doing much better with minimal medicine and his instructions. He's a great doctor! He forgets to say goodbye at the end of the appointment but he's probably deep in thought as he starts writing in the chart shortly after. He's been really great for finally healing foot's issues
I'm not sure how everyone else gave 5 stars, but it may depend on what you're there for. Every time I go there, I wait forever with like 10 other people in the waiting room, and then I wait again when they get me into the office. Dr. Arena comes in for like 2 minutes, is very friendly and helpful, and then disappears again. All I needed was orthotics though, so maybe if you need surgery or more complicated treatment he may be worth the wait. I just get aggravated every time I go and get charged. His staff isn't super friendly either, but they're okay. I think they're just swamped because he overbooks.
Dr. Arena is extremely knowledgable and patient. He wont rush you out if you have questions. After my foot surgery, he called me to check in until I went to see him on a Saturday so he can check the incision and re-wrap my bandages. Even though I ended up having to have surgery, he does not rush to that decision. He really tried everything he could so I wouldn't have to have surgery. His office staff is wonderful! To be honest, you may wait a while in his office, but that is because he never rushes you when he is with you and if you have an emergency, they will fit you in!
