Patients That Inspire

“Dr. Arndt is a very skilled surgeon with excellent communication skills. He takes great care in making sure that your questions are answered, that he has discussed all options with you, and that you understand everything before you leave his office. He is also a very good person with a great sense of humor. I have recommended him to other people who require foot/ankle surgeons.” Anonymous
“I had a Pilon fracture (fracture of the distal part of the tibia, involving the ankle joint). If you have concerns about something, just ask him. He will listen very intently and address the situation with complete honesty. At one point I was afraid I would lose my foot, be permanently disabled or have nerve pain the rest of my life. He fixed al of that and now I can run, exercise, bowl, play softball, shoot baskets and enjoy my niece and nephew the fullest extent. Thank you Dr. Arndt. In a way you saved my quality of life.” Vitals Patient
“Dr. Arndt took time to call and answer a question I had after the exam prior to surgery. Usually a nurse might call back but he personally took the time to call and answer which made me feel confident in Dr. Arndt and my upcoming surgery.” Anonymous
