Dr. Arnold

"I’ve been working with Dr. Arnold for 3 years now. After leaving the PHP/IOP program at Herrick, I was transitioned into his care and all I have are good things to say about him. He’s genuinely caring, responsive, and gentle. Hope to keep him around as long as I can/need."

"Dr. Arnold was able to drastically improve my mental health by changing my meds in ways that other psychiatrists never to the time to consider. He is extremely knowledgeable and versed in the options available and really listens to me and respects that I am the expert on my body and what is working and what is not. I've made insurance decisions just to avoid losing him as a care provider."

Dr. Arnold is my current doctor. I had a situation that I needed his help with. I left a message on Labor Day Weekend. It is Thursday after Labor Day Weekend, and he has not responded. This is not the type of support that someone who cares for patients should be doling out.

Dr. Arnold has been a godsend for our son, who had bipolar. He has been very thoughtful in revising meds and doses, has worked closely with our therapist and pediatrician. He is super responsive. He does not overmedicate and is open to alternatives that make sense. He cares about his patients and keeps up on new developments, practices and meds that can help individuals dealing with mental illness.

Dr. Arnold is a kind, thoughtful doctor, and is a good listener. After four years, Dr. Arnold has stuck with me through some very difficult depressions. He is 100% for his patients, has coordinated my mental health care with other providers. He cares for your cares. I don't see Dr. Arnold in his office. He is at a mental health treatment in Alta Bates Herrick Campus at 2001 Dwight Way, Berkeley.
