I actually wasn't too crazy about getting another steroid shot, which hurt like crazy, but this one DID help and so is the PT!

Dr. Arthur is the best and I am so glad he is my doctor.
Patient | December 6, 2017

Dr. Arthur ignored symptoms. When I got copies of office visits he had written he had completed examinations that he did NOT do. Most visits he sat in a chair. I NEVER got on an exam table I fell at work he was the 1st doctor I saw. He failed to do his job.
Patient | December 5, 2017

He was nice, but I did not get an overwhelming sense of knowledge about what was wrong and what needed to be done in surgery.
Patient | September 26, 2017

I have nothing but praise for Dr. Arthur.
Patient | September 20, 2017

It was my fault for not asking Dr. Arthur enough questions. I had to schedule another visit with my list of questions. He was extremely busy but did take time on 8/7.
Patient | August 23, 2017

I have every confidence in Dr. Arthur and his abilities.

I have great confidence in Dr. Arthur and staff!
Patient | July 20, 2017

This provider has seen me numerous times, and performed knee surgery a few years ago. I trust him with my care which is why I do continue to be seen despite the normal long wait time. He apologized for the wait.
Patient | July 17, 2017

I make a 300 mile round - trip to see Dr. Arthur. Nuff said.
Patient | July 11, 2017

Dr. Arthur came highly recommended from another patient. I would also recommend him. He explained everything I needed explained and did it in a way I could understand exactly what he was talking about.
Patient | June 19, 2017

He is an excellent provider - Always friendly & an excellent "ear."
Patient | May 24, 2017

We love Dr. Arthur - he's not perfect- I would LOVE 60 more seconds of his time just to talk and feel confident I understand, but at the end of the day we are there for medical care -- I had many ex-rays this time and he sat and looked at them quietly and then went over them and over them making sure he didn't miss anything -- very slowly and carefully --- that is most important thing to me. I feel very comfortable with with his competence and attention. My husband made the comment to me that his favorite thing about Dr Arthur is how very thorough he is.
Patient | May 8, 2017

I had some complications (cellulitis) and was not given a good explanation as to why or if this happens often.
Patient | April 10, 2017

We were new patients with him and we were comfortable and he was competent & caring.
Patient | February 27, 2017
