Professional Statement

Dr. Arnold, a former Lieutenant Colonel who served in the US Army for more than 11 years, joined our practice in July 2010. Dr. Arnold is skilled in all areas of gastroenterology procedures, with special expertise in Inflammatory Bowel Disease and GERD. Describing himself as nationalistic, or someone whose pride in his country moves him to action, Dr. Arnold was stationed at Brooke Army Medical Center, serving most recently as Chief of Clinical Services in the Gastroenterology Division. He was deployed in 2008 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Dr. Arnold is most passionate about teaching others, whether he’s instructing his patients about their health care choices or encouraging a medical student during challenging situations. Early on, Dr. Arnold gravitated toward medicine, even though he had an appointment to attend West Point and recruitments to play football. He most looked forward to being able to help and teach those around him. In his spare time, he enjoys participating in his children’s sporting activities and tackling home renovation projects. Dr. Arnold is married and has 4 children.

Dr. Arnold and staff are very caring and professional. When Dr. Arnold gives you the results of your test or labs, he's very honest about the diagnosis but tells you in a very caring way. One of his staff, Kimberly, was very explanatory when giving instructions on a procedure I'll be having in the near future. I was very satisfied with all! :)

Dr. Arnold is very friendly and personable. He took the time to read the information in my file and ask questions to be sure of everything. He discussed the possible need for a procedure to rule out any problem that I might have, but not be aware of.. We agreed on a change in my diet to see if my numbers improve. When we discuss the results of the re-test, we will decide what to do in my best interest. I did not feel like I was being pushed/rushed into anything. His "MA", Deborah is really nice, also. Very thorough and thoughtful.

I was blown away! I have a lot of medical issues and I am fairly young and I'm a women. Most of the doctores I've had I've needed to push and force to get them to listen to me, and take me seriously. I've had to fight doctors just to take blood and do labs to get the right diagnoses. Dr. Hays was amazing he listened to hear what I said, not to just have a response. He is a rare fined in this new age of treatment. Most Doctors just treat symptoms and don't get to the root cause of things. I feel like Dr Hays will continue to dig to get the right diagnosis!!

I knew one procedure was necessary and a second one was advised. Both procedures were explained thoroughly. And my appt is scheduled for next week!! Definitely in a timely fashion. After meeting with Dr Arnold, I have no anxieties or apprehensions. And while not looking forward to a Colonoscopy, I'm not nervous and know I will be pain free, very important.
