Ratings for Dr. George Arnold
I had a TVT bladder sling operation 6 years ago and had complications from the minute the surgery was performed. My husband was very upset and said there was something going on because Dr Arnold repeatedly said my surgery was " textbook perfect". I went home in terrible pain, had urine running down my legs, had to go back the next day to be catheterized. Dr Arnold put in the catheter, taped it on my leg and was ready to send me back home carrying my urine collection bag. When I burst into tears and insisted that I couldn't go home dragging a urine bag, the day after surgery, he finally had me readmitted. By the next day, I was vomiting, had a fever and raging infection that took months to clear up. Since the surgery, I have had two procedures to try to open my urethra- apparently the "textbook perfect" tape was put on too tight, causing my urine to spray out like a bent hose. I have a constant feeling of pain and pressure. I always feel like I need to urinate and have little control, have recurring infections and, to top it all off, I have begun to pass blood- apparently not from infection, but most likely from erosion caused by the tape. I am on an emergency list to have a scope done to find out which of my internal organs are involved. So no, I would not recommend him unless you want the "textbook perfect" results I got.
Dr. Arnold cares has the patient's best interest in mind. He is very kind and helpful. He always listens and doesn't rush the patient. He delivered both of my babies c section. Recovery has been great thank God. I know others who had him for surgeries and their recovery has also been very good.
5 stars for Dr. Arnold. He delivered my baby girl on January 26 and it was very smooth, quick and painless! Had a mild tear, he stitched me up and I barely feel it at all!! He is a nice, polite doctor with good bedside manners. Was very comfortable with him even though he wasn't my OB. Thank you Dr. Arnold for delivering my baby girl!!
Have been seeing Dr Arnold for just over two years for bioidentical hormones and he has helped me a lot. He and his staff are very pleasant to deal with. He truly wants to help you feel your best and is quite knowledgeable on how hormones can affect your life as you get older. He always makes sure to do a thorough blood work before each yearly appointment and to discuss them with you and ask you if you have any questions or new concerns. It's a shame that OHIP doesn't cover my visits with him but luckily I only need to go every 6-12 months and if there are any issues in between visits I can resolve them by calling or emailing his secretary Mary for new prescriptions etc. We are lucky to have a doctor like him in Markham so that we don't have to travel far for these issues.
He is an amazingly calm and polite doctor, He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain to you everything you need to know. He always ask if you have any question and is quick to check if anything is not going well. He delivered my baby boy.
I wouldn't recommend Dr. Arnold. He seemed pretty good up until the end of my pregnancy. I had GD and in my 39th week of pregnancy my sugar levels dropped drastically which could mean an issue with the placenta. When I had mentioned the drop in my sugar levels to Dr. Arnold he didn't do anything about it, he just scheduled an ultrasound for the following week. I seen my endocrinologist the following day and she sent me to triage and the on-call doctor had me induced the same day. That doctor determined I had an aged placenta, which is when the placenta stops functioning properly. I had a healthy baby, but had I waited for the ultrasound the following week, that may not have been the case.
Went to Dr Arnold for hormone replacement I was in and out in less than 3 minutes and had a large bill handed to me as I left. When I had issues it took for phone calls to get some help!! He adjusted the dose and dismissed me !! Still having issues still looking for a new doctor!!! When I went to get the prescription filled the pharmacist told me it didn't make sense
I've been seeing doctor Arnold for almost ten years for endometreosis and ovarian cysts. He is by far the best doctor I've ever been to. He's so patient and caring. Very knowledgeable and you can tell her cares about your wellbeing and doesn't look at you as just another patient. Highly recommended. Thanks for all you do Dr Arnold!
He seems great until there is trouble. He prescribed Ativan through my pregnancy and when the delivering dr found out they called CAS. Dr Arnold didn't help me and when I went for my post check he refused to do it, dismissed me like I was a druggie. Biggest disappointment ever. I really liked him. But he's quick to turn the table and make you look bad. Don't take his advice if you're having sad times in your pregnancy, DONT talk to the social workers he recommends, they wait in the lurch and try to take your baby and call you unfit just because your hormones made you sad!! Opportunists. Mean, heartless and will absolutely not have your back.
