Specialties

Dr. Matthew W Arnold has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Unprofessional

I have been a patient of Dr. Arnold for several years. For most part he had been a decent doctor in the past, however, my last visit with him was extremely disappointing. I had gone to see him to discuss a few concerning symptoms that I have been having for several months, but rather than doing a thorough exam (or any for that matter), or prescribe some tests to rule out suspicious causes, he just took some notes and gave me a prescription for a drug that didn't seem to be very pertinent to my symptoms. I took his prescribed drug for 10 days using his instructions. After 10 days, I was violently sick and had very serious symptoms (bloating, severe abdominal pain, excessive gas, constipation, and rectum bleeding). I was extremely concerned and had to go and see a primary care doctor as well as two different GIs. All these doctors recommended that I had to notify the prescribing doctor (Dr. Arnold) at once, which I did TWICE and left him a message via his staff to call me as soon as he can. This was more than a month ago, and I am still waiting!! Someone from the medical group's patient relations finally called me a week ago, and she promised to look into the matter and have him call me at once. I am still waiting. THIS IS EXTREMELY IRRESPONSIBLE AND UNPROFESSIONAL BEHAVIOR BY DR. ARNOLD, AND I WOULD NEVER GO BACK TO SEE HIM, AND I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU LOOK AROUND FOR A DIFFERENT DOCTOR, IF YOU NEED TO SEE A NEUROLOGIST!
