Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Rude. Seems polite until you mention getting a second opinion, and then tries to intimidate patients into an ultimatum; ‘me or them.’ Then accuses of making HER job harder. She’s supposed to be a psychiatrist - she’s barely that, and sees her patients as nothing more than an inconvenience. Unfortunately, Tuscaloosa doesn’t offer many options for mental health clinics, but Dr. Arnold is rude, uncaring, and uncouth. Seems unknowledgeable about therapy beyond throwing pills at patients.

Dr. Arnold has always been very thoughtful and courteous in our appointments. She takes time to discuss life in general and then will ask about the effectiveness of the treatment plan. I always felt that she cared about my health and was answered all of my questions.

If I could leave zero stars I would. Dr. Arnold is not invested in her patients, and makes it very difficult to keep consistent appointments. She does not believe in any assistance other than prescribing medication like it's candy. I told her that I no longer wanted to be on medication and she said she would prescribe a different medication and that I should talk to a different doctor if I wanted other treatment options. Every meeting with her lasts about 6 minutes.
