Robert Arbuckle, MD
I speak: English
My gender: Male
Where I practice
I grew up in Indiana, where as a child I dreamed of becoming a farmer. I attended Butler University and was the first in my family to complete a four-year undergraduate education. After graduation, I worked instructing organic chemistry laboratory while contemplating my future ambitions. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to receive my medical training at NYU School of Medicine. I moved to Los Angeles and spent one year researching the way sound is processed in the brain at the Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute at USC. My neurology residency and fellowship training were completed at Kaiser Permanente, UCLA and Cedars-Sinai and included subspecialty training working in the muscular dystrophy and ALS clinics at these locations. I began my career with Kaiser Permanente in Southern California and previously served as the Stroke Director at Kaiser Permanente in Woodland Hills, where I worked to improve stroke care for our patients. I decided to relocate to Colorado due to the friendly atmosphere and the access to outdoor activities.
About my practice
I believe that neurology is an exciting field with evolving diagnoses and treatments. It is vitally important that I listen to patients to ensure accurate diagnoses and appropriate care. Given the complexity of neurological conditions, excellent two-way communication is essential. I hope to reduce the uncertainty and anxiety that many patients may feel regarding their symptoms and diagnosis. I practice general neurology and I also spend a significant amount of time performing electrodiagnosis, which includes nerve conduction studies and electromyography (EMG).
How I thrive
With my relocation to Colorado, I am hoping to take more advantage of nature through camping, biking and taking up skiing. I am excited about having signed up for my first Ironman event in Boulder. Playing music continues to be a passion and I hope to be able to perform live in the Denver area.
