Review for Dr. Marrero

Dr. Clements is absolutely wonderful! I took my grandma in today for an appointment. He has a wonderful bedside manner. He took his time and was very personable. His nurse Kaitlyn is amazing too! Highly recommend!

Review for Dr. Clements

Dr Hardy treated me at LCMH ER. I Was in severe pain. Instead of treating me like a drug seeker, he treated me with kindness and empathy. I was at the end of my rope with severe pain. Thank you so much Dr Hardy! Life would be so much if every doctor was like him!
