Ratings for Dr. Arthur L. Hall
Our family has used this doctor for many years. We thought he was very good until he totally refused to acknowledge a bad drug reaction and then he became a little Napoleon. We basically escaped when he refused to listen to what was going on. As long as you go along with him, he is good, but cannot have an open mind when he makes a mistake.
I tagged along with a friend who was being treated for fibro and chronic fatigue. I had only met Dr Hall 2 or 3 times. I was extremely impressed with the knowlege and foresight of this man.Phenomimal in my book is an understatement for Dr Hall. His constant research and knowlege are incredible. Not to mention, he is One in a million and always puts his patients first. Honest, straight forward, cares for and about his patients
Dr. Hall diagnosed my testicular cancer. It was a late afternoon appointment and he made sure I had the tests needed to make a diagnosis that day. He then gave me his personal number and told me to call him later in the evening for results. How many doctors these days do that? He is amazing, and his diagnosis saved my life. I am lucky he is my doctor.
One word of advice: get a second opinion. I went to him because of some odd issue that sounded like hot flashes (I was too young then for it to even be premenopause). About two minutes into the consultation (and without asking me any questions) he started prescribing me anti-anxiety meds for panic attacks. I have a psych degree and I know that was not what was going on with me. Plus, I am just not the type of person who would get anxious about much. I tried to explain to him the full spectrum of my symptoms but he'd have none of it. He pretty much told me that he was the doctor and if I was not going to trust him there was the door. A week later I had a glucose test and it turned out I had hypoglycemia. Something that was taken care of naturally taken better care of my diet. When a doctor won't listen to you listen to your instincts and run the other way, or at the very least get a second opinion.
Starting from the staff til the doctor they are exceptional helpful. Very nice, knowlgeable and always willing to get you in when you call for an appoitment. Doctor is very educated, corteous and always make himself available to the patient. Its a pleasure to call in for an anppt , go to the office and even its educational. Dr hall always explain in details and the makes sure you understand before leaving the office. Office is very clean and a very familiar environmental. great doctor. I recomended him a 100\% . The best doctor I had ever.
When he is right, he is very good. But when he is should be open minded, he makes terrible mistakes without even checking medical reports of tests. I think he is too resonsive to pushing drugs from drug reps . . . and, perhaps, at the detriment to his patients. I was lucky to have a second opinion - He is not open to any discussion, his arrogance can be disastrous.
Until Dr. Hall moved to his new location, we had a good opinion of both him and his practice. Some members of his current staff are both inefficient and unhelpful. He is the only doctor my wife and I have ever had whose staff has given us a hard time about re-filling prescriptions over the phone. Dr. Hall's occasional moodiness has gotten worse and the last visit ended in a screaming profane tirade on his part. He does work too hard and seems stressed out.
Dr. Hall has cared for myself and my family for 13+ years. I am a medical professional, myself, and have high standards for doctors. He is fantastic. He is aware of the most current research and truly cares about his patients. Very thorough. Wait times & staff have significantly improved since he changed locations. If you have to wait, though, he is always worth it.
