Dr. Clayton spent time explaining all my questions and options I had to help me improve my possible walking with a walker again. He also ordered a much needed shower chair. He listened to me while I explained all my surgeries on my right knee.

I went into the emergency room from ambulance with a broken leg yes both phones broke and other issues around it. I didn't know any doctor there so I ask for Dr. Claytons trauma team. And he just has done an excellent job! Before the second surgery he x-rayed every thing again before continuing on to the second surgery. Where he found a few things that he had to take care of when he did my surgery.

This is by far the friendliest doctor office that I have ever been to. Patti, the receptionist was incredibly kind, helpful and a real pleasure to meet. The nurse that took me back to the room and assisted with the x-rays was so nice to me. Dr. Clayton was excellent. He took his time with me and didn't make me feel rushed. He listened to my concerns, answered all of my questions and he was very honest. He was very personable and his bedside manner was great.
