This doctor put the wrong size breast implant in me. He made lousy excuses to defend himself. He also had inappropriate bedside matter by not respecting me, my decisions, and was very moody. I would strongly not recommend him for breast reconstruction. His assistant, receptionist, the only other person in the office; Selena was the most positive thing about my experience.

I was very impressed with the way Dr Arnold listened to me and he was the only doctor I interviewed that was concerned about the evenness of the breasts. The surgery took less time then he estimated even with a small problem from a previous implant. Phone calls are returned very promptly and his assistant is very caring.

I visited Dr. Arnold 13 years after my initial mastectomy/reconstruction. I had never been happy with the original reconstruction and it was time to replace the implants. Dr. Arnold listened to me and did exactly what I wanted. The entire experience was pleasant, starting with Selena in the front office and ending with the procedure itself. I would definitely recommend Dr. Arnold to anyone needing reconstruction.

i am almost 3 years post gastric sleeve...after losing 270 lbs i was in desperate need for skin removal. Dr Arnold saw me and recommended a panniculectomy. Surgery went smooth and he removed 13 lbs. He displayed a wonderful bedside manner as well as informative post-op care. Celina and Dr Arnold have been so helpful in my recovery. I recommend him to anyone seeking to regain their life!!

I had breast cancer and then a mastectomy with reconstruction by another doctor that gave me too small of implants. I told her that I thought it was terrible and she told me that it was my new normal and I need to learn to adjust. I came to see Dr Arnold and he said No I can fix them! I now have new gel implants that feel great and look "normal". Thank you Dr Arnold!!!!

Cancer, being diagnosed very surprising being that my sister passed away 6 months before me finding out. Dr. Arnold reassured me that all would be just fine and i have been through 2 stages of breast reconstruction, and survived it both times.
