Dr. Arendall is one of he most caring physicians I have ever had. I trust his experience and knowledge implicitly. He operated on me, with very little walking ability, now I am able to walk and enjoy life.

Having suffered with lumbar problems for over a decade, it was wonderful to find a doctor who finally understood my problems. Dr. Arendall is very thorough & ran every conceivable test available to get the complete picture before recommending course of treatment. He & his staff are the best!
in Portland, TN |
My appointment time was 12:30. I did not see the Doctor until 2:40. I was very upset with the wait time. Two hours was a little much for me.
