Learn about our survey
I'm having swollen hands and Dr. Arhelger never even glanced at or touched my hands. He dismissed my problem as a sports injury (but did no physical exam?) and ran blood work because I wanted it. He offered no treatment plan, no long term plan. I wanted a rheumatologist referral, he wouldn't give it to me "if my labs were negative." No regard to seronegative rheumatoid arthritis.
He listens well and responds to our concerns thoughtfully. His medical advice is right on and very helpful - and he is personable.
As I have already stated, thorough, good medical advice, timley in returning emails.
He’s informative and answers questions well
Dr. Arhelger is very competent and affable.
I would have given Dr. Arhelger a "10" but many people require a doctor who is more sociable. I like Dr. Arhelger's straight forward way of dealing with my medical needs and don't require a sociable bedside manner.
I feel confident with the knowledge that Dr. Arhelger has and I like that he takes the time to discuss specific questions. I never feel rushed with his appointment slot.
I experienced Dr. Arhelger as somewhat distracted and actually wondered if he was completely cognizant of our conversation and interactions. I would not say he has great "social skills" not a warm bedside manner. I felt like his physical exam was lacking in that he did not seem to thoroughly check examinable lymph nodes. He did ask a lot of questions and did seem to at least cover all the necessary topics expected in an annual check up.

He’s informative and answers questions well
He is good overall. Listens. Smart
He was intrested in me as a person, listened to my concerns and gave sulations
Dr. Arhelger seems nice enough - however, he I've seen him several times and he always comes in the office with the first question about a medical condition that, while perhaps could be consider serious, in my case, as my file states, is due to treatments I've had in the past. I realize that I am just one of many many patients - but I would like him to acknowledge me with a "good morning" and have spent several seconds reviewing my file BEFORE I have to go through my story again and he then sees nothing is wrong.
