I couldn’t ask for a better surgeon. My surgery went great and my recovery has progressed nicely. I couldn’t be happier. It has only been two weeks and I am already much better.

Review for Dr. Clayton

Doctor VanGuru and her staff were kind and understanding. I was a patient of hers before she moved to her new office. I came back to her due to her knowledge and understanding.

I highly recommend Dr. Lincoln. He has been taking care of my back issues for less than one year. His treatment plan has me walking normal again. My gait had been “off” for years but know I walk perfectly. Dr. Lincoln listened closely ...And now I feel and walk better.
