Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Arlein "Dr. Arlein has been practicing vascular and endovascular surgery for over ten years. He recently relocated to the Boise area from Seattle for the great opportunity to work at St. Alphonsus as well as the wide open spaces of Idaho. He feels it is imperative to educate his patients about their disease and to offer then all options of treatment. These treatments range from medical therapy to minimally invasive therapy such as angioplasty to open surgery. His areas of interest include endovascular repair of aortic aneurysms, angioplasty of peripheral arteries, carotid surgery, open bypass surgery, and dialysis access."

Don’t waste your time/money going to this guy. He does not take the time to listen to you. I have had the worst experience with St Al’s.
