Umbilical Hernia Repair
Dr. Arevalo performed an Umbilical Hernia surgery on me 2 weeks ago. The entire experience was great and went exactly as planned. It was quick and easy and only a couple days of being uncomfortable after the surgery. I feel great now and really glad I went through with the procedure with Dr. Arevalo! I would definitely recommend him for this treatment!

I waited a month for an appointment to see Dr. Arevalo. The day of my appointment, he cancelled it saying he refused to see me for my skin problem. Take note my doctors office had called and confirmed with him the condition and he confirmed that he treated this surgically. I lost a lot of valuable time and now trying to get another mid year is atrocious. I think this is shameful. I believe he did this because he didn’t want to accept my insurance anymore. The office didn’t even follow up to make sure I was fine.

Professional and Personable Surgeon
Initial discussion of need for hernia repair was just the beginning of a fantastic experience in abdominal surgery. This is my third and, most definitely, the most enjoyable - to the extent these things can be enjoyable. Dr. Arevalo is as personable as he is professional. He exudes confidence and will answer ALL of your questions pre-, post-, and during surgery. I highly recommend!!

Dr. Arevalo - Specialist robotic hernia surgeon
Excellent care! Very informative pre-surgery meetings - Dr Arevalo taking time to carefully explain the reason for corrective surgery, the recommended procedure, and consequences if surgery is delayed. Surgery went very well, and post-op pain and discomfort was less than anticipated. I was confident I could not have been in better hands throughout.

I was sent to Dr. Arevalo by my primary physician after having had to go to the ER the night before with extreme pain in my upper abdomen and chest area. He was able to confirm that I had gallstones and an appendix that was a bit inflamed. He was able to get me in right away and scheduled me for surgery that evening. I am 2 weeks post op and feel amazing. I am grateful that he was able to diagnose and perform the surgery without any complications. His bedside manner is wonderful and he really made me feel at ease with everything. Highly recommend!

I have had many abdominal surgeries, and was dreading the pain that always followed. Dr. Arevalo used robotic surgery for my hiatal hernia, and the anesthesiologist was able to use a nerve block. That reduced the amount of anesthesia necessary and allowed for much smaller incisions. I have had almost no abdominal pain, and my incisions healed within the week. I would highly recommend Dr. Arevalo and his team.

Dr. Arevalo was so kind and helpful with my 87 year old aunt. He did robotic surgery on her hernia very quickly, and she was back to normal within a few days. He took his time with her and answered all our questions. Very knowledgeable, friendly, thorough!

My procedure could have not been any smoother. Surgery went smooth, recovery went smooth, and progress towards normalcy is going smooth. I was even surprised at not only how well my wounds have healed, but at the success of recovery in terms of minimal pain with maximum progress. Two words. Thank you!
