About Me

I enjoy knowing that I can help change people's lives. I love it when patients offer a simple "thank you," and I keep letters that they have written – like this one, from a husband and wife: "...Dr. Arcenas has an excellent bedside manner, always being careful to listen to all our complaints and ailments. He has always taken time with us." These signs of appreciation make me realize that my long journey into medicine has been well worth it.

I grew up in a small town in the Philippines and came to the U.S. knowing only a handful of people. Before joining Baptist Health, I worked as a physician in West Virginia and Georgia. Now, my wife and I are raising our three kids here in Jacksonville, and I want to offer them the same love and support my parents gave to me.
