Dr. Arnold preformed my breast reduction one year ago. From the first appointment I knew he was the surgeon for me. He is kind, compassionate and genuinely cares about you as a patient and as a person. He always treated me with the utmost respect, really listened to and valued my opinions. I highly recommend Dr. Arnold to everyone looking for a first class surgeon that will be with you every step of the way. He deserves 10 stars but I am limited to 5.

I saw Dr. Arnold for breast reconstruction after being diagnosed with breast cancer. He treated me with respect and always had time to explain things and answer questions. He and Laura are top notch and made my experience throughout this journey more pleasant then I would have ever thought. I would highly recommend his services.

Dr Arnold is a very calm caring doctor. He explains everything very well and always has time to address any questions you have. I had never been sick a day in my life until last year I found out I had stage 4 breast cancer. Dr Arnold was with me through several surgeries. His manner calmed my fears and allowed a bad situation to not be as bad as I imaged. He is a great doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Very pleased with the outcome of all surgeries. He is very good!

After having gastric bypass surgery, I had lost 130lbs. which caused me to have an excess of sagging skin in my breasts and abdomen. Due to gravity and pulling my body forward it caused bone spurs on my spine and my migraines got worse. I decided to get a consultation with Dr. Arnold. I was very nervous since this was my first cosmetic surgery. Dr. Arnold and Laura was very respectful and knowledgeable on the procedures that I was pursuing. They listen and they are there when you need them.

Dr Arnold and Laura are awesome! I went to him to undergo breast reconstruction due to breast cancer. I highly recommend them. I had a wonderful experience with them and continue to. Dr Arnold is not only a very educated Dr he is also a very genuine person. Him and Laura truly care about their patients. I cannot thank them enough!!!!
in Asheville, NC |
Dr. Arnold and his assistant, Laura, provide comprehensive care- and caring. They are very thorough in their explanations amidst the many patients they see, and in tune with what patients need. In addition, they portray a positive attitude that is very helpful for some of the procedures that people go through. I am very satisfied with my experience and know that I can call anytime for advisement.
