Excellent care & great hand washing.

March 09, 2016

Her doctor really listened and restated/summarized my report/concerns about my daughter's health issue, so I really felt like we were on the same page. She was not rushed. She was very engaging with my four year old daughter. She answered all of my questions thoroughly. I am so thankful we found Dr. Clavelle. We have had very negative experiences with other doctor's regarding my daughter's G.I. Issue. They had gone as far as suggesting her problem was behavioral when it clearly was not, and minimized her symptoms. I feel comfortable and secure with Dr. Clavelle, that my daughter's reflux will be managed, so that she can eat and sleep and go about the business of being a happy and healthy four year old girl!

Dr Clavell is a wonderful and compassionate person and physician. She was atentative to both myself and my daughter. The staff was organized and friendly.

February 02, 2016

Dr. Clavell was very thorough and patient in her examination. She explained every aspect of her proceedings and of my sons condition. She listened intently and answered our questions thoroughly. We did not feel rushed. Dr. Clavell showed empathy and caring through the entire visit. Dr. Clavell was very sensitive to my teenage sons privacy and very respectful towards him. I am very pleased with Dr. Clavell and will request her for any future visits. Dr. Clavell is an excellent model for physician conduct and patient care.

February 01, 2016

This was our first visit with Dr. Clavell, who was extremely thorough in familiarizing herself with our daughter's records, in her examination and likely diagnosis, and in communicating information to us. She was very caring and even called the imaging center back in Erie herself when confusion arose as to what test she was ordering.
