Dr. Arevalo and his staff were very personable and professional in dealing with what I learned was a very large umbilical hernia. The procedure went as planned and the results are excellent.

Dr. Arevalo and his team listened intentlyto my concerns. He reviewed the imagery and explained the issue. Both pre-op and post-op explanations were thorough and complete. The explanation of the pathology and follow-up assured me that all went well in the procedure, and that the primary issue was resolved.

Dr. Arevalo did a hernia repair surgery and a endoscopy on me and I would recommend him to anyone needing this type of surgery or gastro needs. He explained things very well and I felt taken care of and heard through out the entire process. When I called the office, the nurses were always quick to return my calls as well.

Dr. Arevalo is thorough, capable, competent and has a caring, friendly and professional bedside manner. After I was admitted to the hospital as an emergergency, he worked my surgery into an already full surgical schedule. He always treated me as if I was the only person in his care, fully focused on me and very caring, even though some of his hospital visits were made late in the evening. Today's visit was a follow-up with drain removal, and he was just as kind, attentive and unhurried as he was in the hospital. Thank you, Dr Arevalo. I will always be in your debt.

Dr. Arevalo is my new favorite human.....on July 4th, he SAVED my life! I can not say enough good about this fabulous doctor. Even his bedside manner is off the charts! He had a very difficult emergency surgery to do for me, on a holiday, and he just came in and got it done. He even prayed with me before the surgery. What else can I say? If you need someone to save you life, Dr. Arevalo is the doctor for the job! Blessings to him, always. Robin Dwyer

Dr. Arevalo is a very empathetic, caring and attentive surgeon. I have never had a surgeon call in for status updates all through the night after surgery, but Dr. Arevalo called every few hours and spoke to the nursing staff about my condition. From initial consult, to the day of surgery, and his follow up visits post surgery he genuinely cares for his patients. Despite being a complicated case, the outcomes of surgery have been excellent. I would highly recommend him for any hernia surgery
