“Taking the time to listen to the patient’s chief complaint, along with medical and personal history can help me tremendously improve a patient’s quality of life. I like to keep an open dialogue with my patients about their diagnosis, tests and treatment options each step of the way”

Dr. Arena treated me in the hospital while I was there for an emergency admittance for a GI issue. She is absolutely wonderful! She is so so kind and has a wonderful bedside manner. She did an endoscopy on me and I had no sore throat, gas, or any bad side effects. She was able to find and diagnose my issue and give me proper treatment which aided me in finding relief from the pain I was having. I am very thankful to Dr. Arena and even though Glen Ridge is quite out of the way for me, I have decided that I will call her office to follow up with her instead of using another gastro doctor that may be closer to me. Thank you very much Dr. Arena!

I love Doctor Arena . She is so kind and takes time with you. She help me with a problem that I could have died from. I go to see her every few months to make sure I’m doing ok. God Bless her. She is a wonderful gastroenterologist. I wouldn’t see anyone else.
