Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Arenas "I treat patients, not just their disease.  Each illness is treated with a team approach based on my patient’s concerns, values, and preferences.  I treat all my patients with the same attention to detail as I would treat any member of my family, because my patients are as important to me as my family."

Dr. Arenas thank you for your attention, energy and commitment attentiveness, understanding, honesty and professionalism.

Most of all thank you for not giving up on me. God Bless you always..
Thank your for the kind words

From my very first appointment (which his office very graciously scheduled me in earlier than I had anticipated when they had a patient cancellation), I found Dr, Arenas extremely knowledgeable, efficient, and amiable as well as very thorough and conscientious about my medical care . When I required urgent highly specialized surgery, he immediate scheduled the procedure for the following early morning, and it went seamlessly. I could not be more pleased with the care provided.
Thank you for the positive review. I appreciate it

Provides very complete and helpful responses to questions. This is very important and helpful to patient. Dr. Arenas has an easygoing, friendly demeanor. This can, if maintained throughout entire visits and treatments, help reassure patients and reduce apprehension. Perhaps an occasional smile would enhance patient comfort. Very rarely, but sometimes appears to show impatience/slight anger when encountering a somewhat difficult, unexpected problem during an otherwise routine procedure.
Thank you for the positive review Mr Mann. I appreciate it

Really unsatisfied with this "doctor". Told my mom she was not a priority right before surgery. For a month now my mom has gotten worse and he still denying to help her. My family is taking legal action towards him for neglect.
I am so very sorry for your dissatisfaction. I do honestly try to provide quality care to all my patients. Anyone I am taking to the operating room is a TOP priority, especially right before surgery. If you would be willing to call my office 592-7400 ext:713 I will do everything in my power to make things right.

Dr. Arenas has very good bedside manners, genuinely listens to my concerns and addresses those concerns. The treatments he has provided to me have put me at ease with a health concern. He provides good patient care.

Thank you for the excellent critique

After years of being under the care of another urologist and my symptoms kept getting worse. I finally decided to change doctors and that's when I began to see Dr. Arenas. I am glad I did, I just had surgery and I am feeling "Great" His staff especially Luz is awesome and overall I am very satisfied. The only "negative" thing I would have to say, would probably be the scheduling department. It takes a very long time to get through, but overall great doctor office.
Thank u
