We went through a torturous experience w multiple doctors who refused to go to bat for our son who needed gall bladder surgery because he was under 17 years of age.. Dr. Fankhouser was an advocate that refused to take no for an answer and took care of Kobie in a miraculous way that made us beyond thankful..

He is a very caring and family friendly Doctor. My daughters love him. He will tell you truth and what you need to do. He is one of the best family Doctors you will ever find.

Dr. Fankhauser has been such an incredible resource for our family. We love the ease of scheduling appointments and asking medical questions and the way he checks in our family if there has been an illness. I was even able to text him from Zimbabwe to get medical advice when I found myself sick in a foreign country. The service Direct Care Clinic offers is invaluable to our family!!!

Dr. Fankhauser has been seeing my family since we moved to NWA several years ago. We moved with him from a hospital clinic when he opened his Direct Care practice. He was wonderful then, but now he has more time to spend with us and we never feel rushed in/out of his office. To finish my 13 year old daughter's sports physical, Dr. Fankhauser told her she had to foot race him. We went out to the grass near the clinic and they raced. My daughter loved it. ??

Dr. Fankhauser is the best! He is caring and compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. He is always so friendly and my kids love going to see him. Our entire family of 7 are under his care and we trust him wholeheartedly. Having direct access to a physician of his caliber is truly invaluable.

Dr. Fankhauser is an excellent doctor. Our children love him. We have one child who is extremely opposed to shots, but at our last visit Dr. Fankhauser and his nurse waited patiently and talked with him until his fears were gone. Dr. Fankhauser always responds quickly when I contact him with medical questions. He provides great advice and options on how to treat our ailments. I have recommended him to numerous friends and will continue to do so.

There are so many good things I could say about Dr. Fankhauser and his team. They have taken such great care of our family. But it's not just the excellent medical care they provide, it's HOW they provide it. Dr. Fankhauser is always accessible and available to us. It still blows my mind that we have this kind of access to such a talented physician. I told him once that I had no idea medical care like this existed. His response was, "This is how it should be." I couldn't agree more.

Dr Joel is always there when we need him, takes good care of our family, and has done a great job building relationships with our children, some of whom struggle a lot with building relationships. Direct Care has the love and support of the Martin's.

Choosing Dr. Fankhauser as our doctor is one of the best decisions we have ever made for our family. He is an excellent, knowledgeable physician who truly cares about each of his patients. Our experience with him and his clinic is unlike anything we have ever had- there is no waiting for days or even hours for a call back and you get same day appointments with minimal wait time. His staff is extremely friendly and the office is clean and professional. I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Fankhauser is the best physician we have ever used. He is quick to reply to messages and goes above and beyond for his patients! We highly recommend him and the Direct Care Clinic of NWA.
in Bentonville, AR |
How many times have you called your doctor's office...and he personally answers the phone? ?? With Dr Fankhauser, it happens! His accessibility is reassuring, and his care is genuine. Dr. Fankhauser is a kind and gentle soul who once patiently spent nearly a hour helping my terrified son get to a place emotionally and physically where he could have blood drawn. I won't ever forget that. Dr F. is a treasure to our family.
Bentonville, AR |
Dr. Fankhauser and his staff are amazing. I can always get a same day or next day appointment. I've never had to wait more than 5 minutes. Dr. Fankhauser is very courteous and spends a lot of time with you. It's also very affordable and has saved our family thousands of dollars.
