By far the most compassionate, understanding, knowledgeable AND helpful doctor I've seen in my 50 yrs of spine pain. His recommendations are based on one's physical AND mental health. He accurately assessed my condition w/in 30 mins of my initial visit. I say this based on the fact I definitely felt better during my visit with exercises he showed me to do at home. Explaining that body follows mind gave me hope that my pain could be decreased w/o narcotics! 4 mo - I feel better and better!

I've been going to Dr. Clavel at the Minnesota Head and Neck Pain Clinic for about 8 years for ongoing fibromyalgia pain. He can be a bit gruff at times but underneath that gruff exterior is someone who genuinely cares about each and every person he treats. He knows his stuff and has always taken the time to help, educate and support me, which is saying a lot because fibromyalgia is a beast to treat. He is by far one of the best doctors I've ever gone to. Highly recommend.
