I am so sorry that Dr. Arnold is shifting her practice and that I won't be able to see her any longer for my back issues. She is the best, most caring, smart doctor I've ever worked with! And I'm 50!

Dr. Arnold is very good about always discussing the problem in a manner easily understod and in a way that is easy to understand. She always listens and responds to your questions until she is sure you are satisfied with the answers. You never feel rushed through your appointment with her.

Very impressed with Doctors knowledge and concern for me.

Dr. Arnold is exceptionality!

Dr. Arnold demonstrated extremely diligent care & thoroughness, both while administering test procedures but also when communicating issues & alternatives.

Dr. Arnold's knowledge was impressive. I learned a lot about my condition. She gave me hope for the future.

Dr. Arnold seems excellent! However getting an appointment to see her was a nightmare! This experience almost made me go to another dr.

Provider thinks in wholistic/interdisciplinary ways and I appreciate that. She is easy to talk to and receptive to my issues and concerns. She treated me respectfully and views me as a whole person. She is very skilled and thinks creatively about my issues to solve them.

Dr. Michelle Arnold is a world - class care provider knowledgeable, great recommendations, caring, not condescending.

Dr Arnold is amazing! She's super smart, listens, and provides clear information. In this whole process with my shoulder surgery and subsequent nerve damage, she by far has been the one provider that understands.

Doctor was thorough in examination and very easy to understand. Appreciated being helped to understand the diagnosis and treatment and any further tests. Very courteous, put me at ease.

Dr. Arnold is a very personable and caring physician and I felt that I had a competent clinician taking care of me. Dr. Arnold was friendly and compassionate but understand my pain and got to the root of the problem and suggested a solution. She is awesome.......
