excellent care

The staff and doctor were friendly and helpful. It is appreciated to have the doctor listen to your problems and discuss solutions, instead of just write prescription. With the right information, he was able to treat my knee issue without more medicine or surgery. Office staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Will give referrals to others.

I was looking for a second opinion for hip surgery and I have scheduled the surgery with Dr Clayton based our the office visit with him. He took the time to understand the problem I had explain what could be done. Unlike my first doctor at University Orthopedics. I had three appointments with them and was told I need a hip replacement and that was it. Zero discussion on why and what was happening or what could be done.

my experience was excellent, After knee replacement surgery and my follow up appointment I am very pleased . I will continue my exercises and work hard to get full range of motion and follow any directions he gives me.
