What Patients are Saying About Dr. Vincent Arlet, MD

Dr. Arlet spent a ton of time discussing my x-rays, what to expect over the next few months in regards to recovering from surgery, and even took the time to discuss spinal and hip issues that weren't yet diagnosed, as well as monitoring and treatment plans for everything. He spoke to me with respect and easy to understand terms and seemed as excited as I was to be discussing the success of the surgery, post op care plans, and monitoring orthopedic conditions.

Dr. Arlet was very clear in our options and described exactly what the best plan of action is. The reality of the situation hit me and I froze up when it came time to ask him questions, so he gave me time to gather myself and suggested that it may be easier for me to speak with his assistant, which was exactly what I needed. Together, they were able to answer all of my questions without hesitation, which made me confident that I want to have the surgery preformed by Dr. Arlet and his team.
