My mother went to Dr Arla for over thirty years,and when she passed away a couple weeks ago I called and told dr Arla. The scumbag didn't even send a card. Mr Bill Hardy from Peoples bank actually came over to the funeral home and saw her.

Weel obviously u are the one that doesn't know Dr. Arla very well. Back when my mom was in the hospital a few years ago just because she told them she was gonna go t Jewish he refused to go to where she was at. She was in there for just a couple of days and not once did he show up. And it was like pulling teeth just to get one of the other doctors from his dumb office to come in. They never did find out what was wrong with her. They said that it could have been a few things, and there were a few things that they said it could have been that they never did do any tests for to see if that was the problem or not. So I agree that Dr. Arla is a QUACK. I was pregnant with my son at the time she went in the hospital. When he pulled that crap I found a new doctor because he was my primary doctor.
Doctors have to have "priveleges" at hospitals. he was probably not refusing to go he couldn't. usually they go to one or two hospitals. Whoever told your mom to go to jewish is who should have gone to see her. They probably had to get a collegue to go as a favor to them since w=she was a patient of their office.
As for them not being able to find out what was wrong...you didn;t say she died from it, so i will give my opinion. It wasn't too bad or serious because she didn't go to other doctors to find out what was wrong. Also it must have gon away since you didn't mention that she still has the same problem. Not everthing is an episode of House. People who complain about things like this without all the facts... Ugh! P.S. I am new to the area and have no idea who Dr. Arla is.

I think the whole office there is a bunch of quacks!! Unfortunately my grown son is a patient there and I am looking for another dr. for him. The nurse practitioner there gave my son a test while he had active pneumonia and then proceeded to tell him he had COPD....when she was asked to do the test again after he recovered from pneumonia because the test was really not enough to base her diagnosis of COPD, she refused saying his lungs needed to "rest"..REALLY?? its ok to do the test while we know there is active pneumonia but not when the pneumonia is clear???...point is the chick knew I had proved her wrong. Another visit he was seen by Dr. Arla himself who spent maybe a total of 10 seconds with him and then referred him to a specialist because he didn't have the "equipment in his office to do the exam that was needed" I've worked in a Dr. office and hospital for years and I knew exactly what equipment was needed and if his office didn't have it, then that is a pretty sad office..my guess he simply didn't want to do the exam. I've been a nurse to long to fall for that kind of substandard care...

Obviously you have no idea who Dr. Arla is. If he knows something is really wrong I promise you he would take more then enough time to listen to you. I cannot express how much my family and I appreciate all of Dr. Arla's work and the passion he has for doing his job and doing it correctly. Thank you so much Dr. Arla, you will always be considered a big part of our family.

Personally I think Dr. Arla is like everyone else said he is a joke. My grandma had Rheumatoid Arthritis and she went to him for 25 years and he never did a damn thing to help her. He would get her to come in for a doctor visit go he could get his money and send her on her way. He is worthless period.

Dr. Arla is a joke! He prescribed both me and my brother a medication that we are both HIGHLY allergic to .. when in our charts it clearly stated our allergies ... Hands down the worst DR I have ever been to in my life ... wouldnt take my worst enemy to see him .... Hopefully whom ever is taking over his practice has some sense and actually pays attention to the patients and their issues .

OH PLEASE...I get so tired of hearing all the bulls**t. If you don't like Dr. Arla, then fine...go somewhere else. Quit your damn whining, and get over it. EVERYBODY dies, and I am sure Dr. Arla didn't kill them all. There are other Dr's in that office besides him. For all you Shepherdsville people haters... I am from Shepherdsville. I don't give a damn if you don't like my weight, or my teeth, or anything else about me. Get a freakin life, get off your fat a** and find something else to do, besides running your fat mouth.

FYI: Although he got Jewish to build out here (which is nice and was needed), and although his family's names are on the 'street signs' in the parking lot (for now), he's no longer with Jewish. Staff there is very hush-hush about it too.

Hmmm... I wonder WHY??????? mmmhmmm ;)

Others at Norton's (who he's with now) tho have pulled me to the side to state their displeasure and concern with him. The state really needs to investigate him.

Dr. Arla saved my life. He did what needed to be done and got the right specialists in. He has been my doctor for 30 years. He treated my parents, my husband, my son, and my sister. No one is 100% perfect but he is the only doctor I know where his office comes to the hospital to check on you rather than send a stranger in.

He is no longer with Jewish because they refused to put his name in gigantic letters on the freeway side of the building. He got mad and that was it. FYI....he also misread labs and let me father die.....
