Dr. Clavo is an excellent doctor! We have been with him for at lease five years he always listens to my husband's issues and does his very best in working with us in trying to attack the problem at hand for my husband Who has significant chronic pain issues. Two of his staff members in particular that I would like to give kudos to also is Jaylen and Shauna! They both always go above and beyond in helping us with our prescriptions, insurance & appt issues. We love this practice!

I have been a patient of Dr Clavo's for a number of years. I have always found him to be very professional in his care and always takes time to talk to you and adjusts his care accordingly.
in Conyers, GA |
Had a great experience with Dr. Clavo & his staff. They were all friendly and eased my worries once he started going over everything.
in Atlanta, GA |
This is seriously one of the nicest, most amicable doctors I have ever had the pleasure of being with as a patient. He is patient, and he is always eager to find you the right solution for your issues. I wanted to go straight to surgery my back hurt so bad but we found an alternative therapy that worked better than I could have expected. I now have minimal back pain and I didn't have to go through expensive and invasive measures to find the relief I was looking for!
in Conyers, GA |
When i had an injury in my back i was referred to Dr Clavo by a good friend. The reviews scared me a little bit but i went to see him anyway based on my friends experience. I had a very good experience with Dr Clavo regardless of the reviews on here. I highly recommend his services.
