Dr. Arakawa chose endocrinology because it combines his interest in physiology, lifestyle medicine and patient-centered care.
Prior to joining Samaritan, he worked at a mission clinic in Guam, where he also directed a wellness center with community programs to improve mental well-being and promote a healthy lifestyle improvement.
Dr. Arakawa describes his relationships with patients as a mutual collaboration that encompasses the health of mind, body and spirit.
He is involved with several faith-based non-profit organizations and participates in mission trips to underserved areas, including Romania, Mexico and the Pacific Islands. In his free time, he volunteers with community and church groups to provide health screenings and give educational talks. He is married and has two sons.
