Made the worst decision ever in my life to have Dr Ben Clair do my left foot and ankle Surgery. He left TCO shortly after doing my surgery. I have not been able to stand on my foot for more then 2 hrs at a time with out numbness and swelling occuring. Wake up almost every night between 2 - 4 am w/ major foot and lower leg pain. Wish I knew what he really did to my foot and ankle. I thought he was going to do a wonderful job but he had me fooled. Wish he knew how much he screwed my life up with this surgery..

He botched my surgery left me walking around on Foote which needed a triple fusion done to fix all underlying issues currently. I am very thankful Allina Health they proactively figured in minimal time and did surgery to give some quality of life, I believe Benjamin knew this and deflected it altogether. I would never recommend him because he truly thinks he knows all.

I had a surgery two years ago for my bunions, I didn't have pain, but didn't like what it looks like. Now after two years I think that I made biggest mistake in my life to do that surgery!!!!!!! My toe is absolutely NUMB and painful!!!!! We moved to Florida and I very upset that can't go to Dr. Clair and look to his eyes and ask him how he cut my nerve that all my life now I have to live with my NUMB toes!!!! Terrible, Terrible experience!!!!!

I took my adult son who has autism to see Dr Claire about a painful foot issue. It was the best medical encounter I’ve had with my son in a very long time! Dr Claire gave my son time to answer and ask questions. The dr was genuine in his interest in my sons daily activities. He described the options clearly. My son is feeling much better after an injection - which Dr Claire made as painless as possible - and for once he had a good experience at a medical appointment. Highly recommend!

I’ve only had my initial visit but already impressed with Dr Clair and his staff. He asked questions and listened. Made sure that tests were going to be arranged along with a follow up visit. Received a call to schedule a MRI within an hour of leaving the appointment and had the scan that afternoon. My great toe was broken almost a year ago and despite seeing two other doctors there is little improvement. So far this experience has been completely different. I’m optimistically hopeful!

I visited Dr. Clair for a second opinion after the recommendation from a friend that works with him. I have a Jones Fracture and currently the healing process has not being going as well as we had hoped. When I went to Dr. Clair, I felt "heard" and that he truly cared about what I was hoping to get out of my treatment. He recommended surgery which I believe is the right course of action for both the physical healing of my foot but also the mental confidence I need from my foot to perform and live my life they way I would like to.

I saw Dr. Clair for a Trimalleolar ankle fracture. He was very complete and answered all my questions during my initial appointment, before surgery and at my post surgery appointment. It has been six weeks and I seem to be well on the way to a full recovery. After researching several surgeons and now having been treated by Dr. Clair, I would definitely use him again and recommend him.

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.
