DR. ARNOLD IS NOT HELPFUL!!!! MY WIFE RECENTLY HAD A PHYSICAL WITH HIM BEFORE OUR INSURANCE CHANGED (BECAUSE MY WORK CHANGED PROVIDERS) . MY WIFE IS GETTING A NEW JOB AND NEEDS TO HAVE HAD A FORM SIGNED THAT SHE HAS HAD A PHYSICAL IN THE LAST YEAR. SHE TOOK THE FORM TO HAVE DR. ARNOLD SIGN OFF AND HE WOULD NOT SIGN IT BECAUSE OUR INSURANCE CHANGED, EVEN THOUGH WE ALREADY PAID FOR IT AND THE FORM STATES THE EXAM NEEDED TO BE DONE IN THE LAST YEAR.

Dr. Arnold is a competent doctor and I highly respected him until recently. My only complaint has been his unfriendly, incompetent staff. Recent incidents with his staff in my interactions with them revealed Dr. Arnold's hypocrisy and lack of concern for his patients in his ridiculous defense of his staff. If you disagree with him or complain about the poor treatment of patients by his staff, it becomes a situation of "his way or the highway." I chose the highway and will find another doctor.

What an OUTSTANDING doctor. He is humble, caring and compassionate. He is like that brother in your family that you absolutely love and miss when you're apart. He possess that character all doctors should emulate. I absolutely admire Dr. Arnold's front office staff as well. This Veteran is completely satisfied. I am truly blessed to be a patient of Dr. Christopher Arnold.

He is a very compassionate human being that treats his patients with respect. Has gone out of his way to check on my well being after suffering the loss of my wife to cancer. I can honestly say that he is what a REAL DOCTOR should be like. I have several family members that feel the same way and are his patients as well.

Dr. Arnold is a excellent Doctor who has a warm and caring personality along with this his top medical skills. He has always been available for me even on short notice. He spends lots of time with you and answer any questions honestly. He is a pleasure to see because you know he gives you a hundred percent of his attention and is concerned with your overall health, not just the specific reason you have seen him. He is a wonderful person with a great personality on top of that. Highly recommended

I thought Dr Arnold was a doctor that cared. I thought he spent the time to give me proper direction and was very focused on health maintenance. Great Doctor!

While he is an AMAZING doctor, who seems to genuinely care for his patients, his front office staff is lazy and inept. They are rude- all of them, miss messages, often don't take the phone off the lunch message when they arrive back, meaning you can't get anyone all afternoon, and when they do take a message, they get it WRONG. His on call person over the weekends is useless, won't prescribe or see you if you aren't currently his patient, which makes no sense. after 9 years with him, I'm done.

Dr. Arnold is respectful, patient, and trustworthy. He takes time to listen to your complaint and doesn't try to get you out right away. He calls personally to deliver test results.
