A lot of these survey questions really do not apply yet. I am scheduled for a hip replacement by Dr. Clayton. He has performed just such a surgery on my wife. We are both pleased with the result. This is why I chose him as my doctor for this operation.

I dont always get to see the doctor. However this visit I did. I had questions about my medical condition that are concerning me. As I tried to address these concerns with the doctor he had basiclly said " it is what it is." He had a student PA with him that day. He seemed to be more concerned explaining my past injury/surgeries with her than he was with my current concerns. Very disappointed. And to be seeing an orthopedic surgeon that specializes in that particular medical field.
