Dr. Clare has wonderful bedside manner & seemed knowledgeable. My toe surgery went so wrong. I waited over 3 hours for my surgery to take place. The staff left stitches in my foot & when I called after going back 3 times, I was told to pull them out myself. My third toe is now dislocated from the surgical fix of my second toe & requires new podiatrist to remove screws & fix surgery from dr. Clare. I am so disappointed. My new X-ray looks like my foot was tortured.

Dr. Clair did an awesome job of repairing a cyst in one of my ankles in 2012. When I needed the same procedure in 2018, I sought him out, in spite of the fact that he was now practicing four hours from my home. The trip for surgery, and follow-up visits went very smoothly, thanks to Dr. Clair and his staff, including Aaron. Both surgeries were successful, and not only would I highly recommend him to family, friends and others, I would seek him out again myself, if needed.

There are not enough good things I could say about Dr. Clair and his team through my experience working with him. After years of being told I had planters faciitis Dr. Clair was able to diagnose and fix years of pain. My insurance was very difficult to work with but Dr. Clair and his team did everything they could to ensure I got the treatment I needed. I am so grateful to Dr Clair for everything he and his team did. You will not find a more compassionate knowledgeable doctor. Truly talented Dr.

I had previous leg surgery, my symptoms came back and Dr. Clair not only fixed what was going on but made sure that everything from the previous surgery looked okay. I couldn't be more happy and impressed with Dr. Clair and his team. Have referred all family and friends to him.

I have already referred many friends and family to Dr. Clair. I wouldn't see anyone else! Dr. Clair was very thorough in his care and helping me figure out what was wrong with my foot. I am now pain free and able to get back to enjoying what I love.

Awesome doctor. I had been suffering for years, and was limping around and worried that I'd be non-ambulatory and possibly lose my job in the future. This after seeing two other physicians and being misdiagnosed. Dr. Clair looked at my MRI and said it was arthritis. He gave me three steroid injections in my foot and I now feel like I have my life back! I can walk great again, without pain!! I never thought this would happen, and I'm eternally grateful. I've recommended him to everyone I know!

After receiving a diagnosis from another doctor who proposed surgery for my hammertoes which I thought extreme and would require extensive recovery time, I went to Dr. Claire who solved my problem with a much simpler approach which had me walking without support the same day and fully recovered in a couple of months. Great guy and Great doctor.

Very happy with results from work done on may heel/ankle in Oct 2016. Dr. Clair removed excess bone and repaired and reattached a couple of tenons. Would recommend

Dr. Clair is very personable. He explains conditions and treatments very clearly and easily. I had foot surgery and walked out of the surgery center feeling great, with no pain. By the evening, I had very minimal pain and did not require anything other than ibuprofen after the first night. I was back to work 3 days later, and now my foot feels great!
