Port Orchard, WA |
He was recommended by a Oncologist who asked him to perform a procedure. When I met Dr. Arroyo he had no interest in what the Oncologist had asked him to do. Instead he went for his camera in my bladder -- concluded I needed an operation, even though did not have any of the symptoms he said I did. He has a very poor bedside manner and I would not even consider letting him ever see me again. Sorry, nothing good I can report about the experience.

Had outpatient lithotripsy (kidney stone blasting) just this morning. Saw Dr. Arroyo twice before surgery and he was excellent in explaining his reasons for recommending surgery and what to expect. He and his attending staff were excellent today in providing EXACTLY the info I needed in a professional, compassionate and easy going manner. Would absolutely recommend him for kidney problems. PS a nurse colleague of mine also recommended Dr. Arroyo.

Received treatment for a variate of minor problems, the prostate surgery, and finally implantation of inflatable penile prosthesis. Completely dedicated to successful treatment. Cost conscious and uncommonly current on insurance coverages.

Underwent surgical procedure by Dr Chris Arroyo today. Could not be more pleased. My post-op experience proved much more benign than described on internet discussions of the procedure. Operative site very clean and neat. No discomfort--have not taken any pain meds 4 hours since completion. I would enthusiastically recommend him. I am retired but still licensed physician.
