Dr. Eric A. Arp- D.P.M.

My interest in becoming a Physician goes back to my childhood. I grew up in Iowa and developed a passion for two things. I knew that I wanted to help people and I absolutely loved playing football. In high school, I was an All-State linebacker for my school's State Champion football team (Go Spartans). I was fortunate to be able to continue that love of playing football when I walked on to the Iowa Hawkeye football team under legendary coach Hayden Fry. I had to make a tough decision after the first year to continue on with football, or focus on my goal of becoming a doctor. It was the most difficult decision that I've had to make and one that I have never regretted. I spent 4 years in Chicago during medical school , secured a surgical residency in Indiana and then my wife and I made the decision to move to Mountain Home along the beautiful shores of Lake Norfork. We have raised our six children in this community and I have enjoyed coaching them in several sports, taking my 4 time state championship winning baseball team the "Bomb Squad" all the way to the Cal Ripken World Series in 2013. I have been active as a mentor at the Mountain Home High School Career Academy and have incorporated student internships at my clinic. I am passionate about my patients and have a special interest in resolving heel pain with a non-surgical technique, as well as reconstructive flat foot surgery and the delicate art of forefoot surgery. I feel blessed to come to a job that I love every day and am honored to be able to gain the trust and respect of so many patients over the years.
