About Me

Dr. John Arnold was born and raised in the Midwest. Following his education, he worked at the Cleveland Clinic for six years, before operating a private practice for several years. He then rejoined the Cleveland Clinic before heading back to Illinois and joining the Blessing Health System.

"I had the opportunity to work with great mentors, and people very well known in the field. I've benefited from their guidance and their training, their teaching, and my experience in those institutions.
