I had an excellent experience with Dr Arett. He identified my medical issue quickly and scheduled my surgery as soon as possible to resolve the issue. He was patient with my questions and explained every step in the process. He took the time to give me a complete overview of what my condition was and possible outcomes. I felt confident that I was in good hands and was very fortunate to have you him as my doctor.

Was unable to talk to Dr. when in extreme pain and discomfort. Don't know if it was staff indifference or Dr. to busy to respond. An emergency room visit was required with a procedure to relieve the pain. Dr. staff called 3 days later.. I have found a different Dr.

He took the time to explain the prostate problems; he was thorough and answered every question; the biopsy went smoothly and the outcome was great. Everything one could ask for. Very happy with his excellent care. We saw him at the Barnes West County Hospital which was run very efficiently with wonderful caring staff working there. It was very clean, too.

Dr. Arett is one the very polite and professional doctor I ever met. He explains all the medical conditions in detail and he will not scare you away. He is very friendly, has good patience to discuss all the lab reports. He answers all your questions and not in a hurry. He explains the pros and cons of the prescription. And the wait time is really less like 10-15mins. I have seen doctors who made me wait >45mins. Overall I am very happy with the visit and the treatment I got.
