Erlanger Community Health Center
Dr. Jeremiah Arnold has always been fascinated by the human body and how it works, so it’s no surprise that he eventually found his way to serve pediatric patients at Erlanger Community Health Center. After 11 years of schooling and preparation, Dr. Arnold has been practicing for a year and prides himself on being fun, optimistic, and relatable. “One thing that separates me and my practice from others is that I always try to be very down-to-earth,” explains Dr. Arnold. “I’m a doctor, but I’m also a human just like my patients. I think it is important to remind patients of that.” In addition to putting patients at ease, Dr. Arnold also aims to make a warm and welcoming first impression, and he notes the entire staff serves as a beacon of positivity.

1. What is one of your happiest professional moments?
I love being able to help someone access necessary prescriptions, specialty services, and other medical needs in today’s confusing world of healthcare.
2. What do you see as the most exciting new development for your profession?
Earlier recognition and detection of developmental and behavioral issues that allow children to be plugged into resources sooner.
3. What accolades mean the most to you?
It’s great when I get a genuine smile from a patient when they realize I have actually been listening to them.
4. Why have you chosen this field of specialty?
After rotating in a pediatric clinic as a medical student, I was hooked. I like how pediatric patients aren’t afraid to ask questions and say what’s on their minds.
5. What is your philosophy when it comes to the care of your patients?
I treat my patient as though no one else is looking out for them because sometimes that’s the case. Always go above and beyond because you never know what’s happening in someone’s home life.
