Specialties

Dr. John M Arthur has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

How bad can the system get?

Went to see this doctor for kidney donor evaluation. Saw another doctor first and then he came in. I wanted to have enough time to ask him questions. After all, I am considering a surgery I don't need for myself. However, he really did not have accurate statistics to quote and I left feeling very unsure about the whole thing. Where are you, Dr. Marcus Welby?

so so

A friend recommended him because he was the director of the kidney medicine service at UAMS; pleasant but I wasn't blown away with his expertise.

many problems

Dr. Arthur usually works with residents or fellows (he must be so important that he rarely does anything himself) so what he decides to do really depends on how good and thorough his assistants are. Unfortunately, his underlings are quite mistake-prone and I don't trust them. Dr. Arthur rarely will question their accuracy.
