Not sure how this doctor is I didnt really see him but for 1 min to write on my back on what part of the body my injection was for. Not giving bad review on him for every bed was full and I felt like part of an assembly line. No one called to say I was getting 1 injection when I was suppose to get 2. They had to give 3 tries with my iv and it was freezing in the office. Doctor seemed nice it feels as if he did get it right so I am happy for that. Also did not know what my fee was until I arri

I'm absolutely upset by the manner in which my treatment was administered. I requested to have local anaestisia for my back treatment. I was told that was possible, however when I was wheel into the surgical theater, the Dr. along with with his staff proceeded to administer the shots without the local anaesthesia. Even if it is a State law in Georgia that only general anesthesia is required for such treatment, patient should be clearly inform that local anaesthesia will not be applied.

I feel that this is a very nice facility but i had the hardest time with my sessions. Every week it was something either my visits were being cancel because of the workers not coming to work or I was not able to receive the treatments that would actually assist in my healing. when I stopped my visits and found another place, they requested my information and it was never sent. I found it a waste of time, gas, and money and I will never return for any service.

Unfortunately I never got to share my injuries and pain with him, only his assistants unless I was having an injection. His assistants changed frequently. I gave up.

I came to this man 15 years ago after spending the previous 7 under the care of other doctors. I was a virtual prisoner in my home unable to walk, in pain that never went away or eased, living a life I would wish on no one. Dr. Clavo changed all that...and my life. Through a series of medical procedures, (done in the office), and adjustments in my medication I began to get my life back. He's a man of outstanding character, a caring and compassionate man and a wonderful doctor with a great staff.
