She will pass you along to other staff members before she sees you. You will be tired by the time you get out of her office and you will be no where near any relief from your condition.

Was referred to her but due to their billing "rule", I am unable to see her. Beware, they REQUIRE you to give your credit card and will bill you whatever your insurance company does not pay. No advance warning, nothing. So, you owe $576, they will charge your credit card. Makes me sick, they won't set up payment plan, just bill it. PASS. They care more about $ than patients with something like that set up.

I saw her twice, actually once, as her PA did the visit the 2nd time.... I had a severe reaction to Enbrel & it got worse after each injection, so I finally had to call her. She acted like I was crazy & she was only interested in protecting the drug company, which not only really hurt me, as my symptoms were really scaring me, but its completely unethical as a doctor to do. I really liked her the 1st time, but I was completely blown away by how she treated me. Still in shock....

I have recommended Dr. Arnold to a family member. I started seeing her father, William Arnold, over three years ago. He was wonderful! Doctor Erin and her team really handled the transition well when Dr. William retired, and she is impressive in her own right. It's not an easy trip there and back for office visits (95 miles each way) but I wouldn't think of changing doctors. I'm confident I have the best care available.

Dr. Arnold is amazing. She is the only rheumatologist I've ever had. When she left Illinois bone and joint to open her own practice, I followed her. Can't imagine trusting my care to anyone else. She is professional, but treats you like family. Really listens to your needs and goes out of her way to help in any way she can. She's the best and her staff is great!

hard to say if Dr is good when see her for 4-5 minutes ; use of physician assistant to increase billings & decrease MD face time with patients and added no benefit to patient. If I wanted to be treated by a PA, would go to doc in the box. With very brief MD time which included computer time, concerned about treatment choices.
