Specialties

Dr. Norman K Arai has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr Arai has been our family doctor for many years and we have always been impressed by his care and concern, and the fact that he follows up on tests by calling us personally.

Horrible Doctor if you have a serious problem or illness

Complacent - does the least he can do to get by and still keep his medical license - doesnt follow up- doesnt review patients files - told my grandmother she had hiatial hernia and to raise the front of her bed up. Kept going back to him with other symptoms ( hard swallowing) etc - he did no tests, no scopes, nothing, 3 years later - finally convinced her to see a Doctor other than her precious Arai she NEVER had a hernia she had esphogial cancer and passed 6 months after the correct diagnosis. I guess thats why he caters to the elderly more often than not, when they die nobody is the wiser to his complaciency
