Ratings for Dr. Paul M. ARNOLD
Had fusion of C5-C7 in Nov 2015. When I went to follow up appt, I waited over 2 hours and then had to leave. I have increasing pain in my back and shoulder extending from where the surgery was performed. Other drs won't see me because Arnold performed the surgery. Now waiting for appt but now I know I will be there for hours before I get seen!
This is the rudest doctor I've ever seen in my life. He hadn't even reviewed my records when I arrived for my appointment, yet he was adamant that I needed surgery simply because I had been referred to him. He was clueless as to what I had been referred to him for and had to go out and come back to even know why I was there. DO NOT TRUST THIS DOCTOR!
Just don't do it! I had an L5-S1 fusion. He misplaced the right bolt and even before I got out of the hospital, I had to have another surgery to move it. His bedside manor is non existent and just as bad in the office. Don't think that he is a good technician. Go elsewhere! Anywhere.
If this is the Paul Arnold operating at KU med center in 1998 the following is true: Performed ad L4 to S1 fusion using "cage" hardware and the fusion failed. He continued to lie to me about the results and I spent over 1 1/2 years in a pain clinic. I am still on pain medication 15 years later. He was terrible to deal with, had no interest in me as a patient and continually lied about my condition. DO NOT GO NEAR THIS MAN!
spent 3 min with me and didn't even look at my chart what a waste of time
