Patient Praise: “Dr. Clements figured out a diagnosis for something I have been dealing with for some time now. Because he LISTENED to what I had to say he was able to guide me [in] the right direction… and he was right! I have answers now and can start my journey to heal… My appointment was not even for this and he stayed and researched and provided me with the knowledge I was lacking. I am very happy I got to meet Dr. Clements and I am very excited to have someone that listens to his patients, and not just the numbers on a paper. Thank you!”
