I would give Dr. Clayton my highest recommendations!! He gave me plenty of time to voice my concerns and discussed those concerns with me. He's was very compassionate and understanding of my fears about having surgery. Excellent surgeon!! I'm now able to walk without pain for the first time in years.

I have been very impressed with Dr. Clayton, his diagnosis of my knee injury, the process he went through (x-ray, then MRI), and thoroughly explaining my options. I opted for surgery and am very glad I did. He is a great surgeon and I highly recommend him to anyone with any type of knee problems!
