Great surgeon. Answers your questions and explains everything so you will understand it. Great bed side manner. I told him that he needs to be just a Family Practice doctor. Would love to have a primary doctor like him. I can't say enough good things about him.

Dr. Pav is great with complex patients like my grandmother. She not only consults with her other specialists to come up with a treatment plan, but whenever my grandmother is hospitalized she rounds on her, including Saturday nights. She is the last of a dying breed of physicians!!!

Review for Dr. Arett

My choice was based on FUSION BIOPSY biopsy and reputation. Ultimately - life saving due to early diagnosis. However, I often wonder if robotic would have been better than conventional surgery with regard to ED issues after a year post op.
