Dr Arnold is very skilled. He is direct and to the point. Very pleased with my outcome
in Lansing, KS |
I did not know Dr Arnold prior to seeking an emergent consult on a serious lumbar herniated disc/stenosis problem that I was experiencing. BOTTOM LINE: I found Dr Arnold to be direct and to the point and very knowledgeable. If you are prepared to ask him questions about your condition he will directly answer them. I felt very comfortable that his diagnosis and treatment plan was best. My discectomy and laminectomy went well and I'm back to work two weeks post surgery. I recommend Dr Arnold.

Dr Arnold is the worse Doctor I have ever seen! He screwed up my back so badly with a surgery that I ended up in the worse pain ever and unable to live my life with any sense of quality. Stay away from Dr Paul Arnold!

Agreed, Dr. Arnold is an introvert and his bedside manner isn't the best, but he is a brillent surgeon. I was medically retired after 22 years active Army. Soon after I was out Dr. Arnold did a cervical fusion in 2014 and a discotomy (Mar2016). Even though things were going so well, I herniated the same disk (L5/S1) and need more help (maybe a lumbar fusion) and I won't pick any other Dr. I will take skill and brains over manners any day. He took me quickly when I was in unbearable pain.

Dr.Arnold did spinal fusion on me from C5-C7 I think he is a good doctor he just doesn't talk much you wait for a long time to see him but he is a busy man.
