    worst Dr. and assistant ever. DO NOT USE. contact me with any questions. dr. Clare reconstructed both my heels. never once check up on me at hospital, had major complications and infection and could not even even get him or his worthless assistant Ann Marie to call me back. instead of sending me to a wound specialist referred me in house PT which caused additional infection have had to have heel removed, hardware out; charged me additional $3000. CHANGED DDR. & NOW HOPING TO KEEP MY FOOT.
