Hi, my experience in the office was fine. The survey is very very repetitive.

Dr. Ryan Arnold is very personable, very caring and most importantly very knowledgeable. He was not scheduled to see me on my first round of injections as the pa was handling. I had some questions and asked to see him. He arrived shortly after with no problem. On the second visit we had xrays taken and he took the time to explain everything to me.Excellent that he is your president as he is doing a wonderful job.
