Dr. Arp's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Arp "My interest in becoming a Doctor goes back to my childhood. I grew up in Iowa and developed a passion for two things. I knew that I wanted to help people and I absolutely loved playing football. In high school, I was an All-State linebacker for my school's State Champion football team (Go Spartans). I was fortunate to be able to continue that love of playing football when I walked on to the Iowa Hawkeye football team under legendary coach Hayden Fry. I had to make a tough decision after the first year to continue on with football, or focus on my goal of becoming a doctor. It was the most difficult decision that I've had to make and one that I have never regretted. I spent 4 years in Chicago during medical school , secured a surgical residency in Indiana and then my wife and I made the decision to move to Mountain Home along the beautiful shores of Lake Norfork. We have raised our six children in this community and I have enjoyed coaching them in several sports, taking my 4 time state championship winning baseball team, the "Bomb Squad" all the way to the Cal Ripken World Series in 2013. I have been active as a mentor at the Mountain Home High School Career Academy and have incorporated student internships at my clinic. I am passionate about my patients and have a special interest in resolving heel pain with a non-surgical technique, as well as reconstructive flat foot surgery and the delicate art of forefoot surgery. I feel blessed to come to a job that I love every day and am honored to be able to gain the trust and respect of so many patients over the years. "

I would not trust anyone else with my feet or my family's feet except for Dr. Arp. He's the best period. Staff and atmosphere is beautiful and down to earth. He knows what he's doing and I've seen him many times at work. Nobody does better.

Dr. Arp is price gouging. Taking x-rays that are totally NOT needed. Wait time was over an hour, and extreme high prices. Staff is rude.
