Specialties

Dr. Sally Arai has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

Underwhelmed

Stanford considers "on time" to be when they place you in a room. The exam rooms are uncomfortable and I've waited there for up to an hour to the doctor to come in. Dr. Arai had not read anything prior to first visit, had not gotten results of critical tests to be able to be informed of status of illness and thus had to theorize about what might be going on. Very underwhelmed. That said, it's really a production line process that turns out replicable results such that the inconvenience is just that but doesn't really affect the outcome. I'm sure she knows what she needs to know and she is pleasant.
