Care Philosophy

In the best of circumstances surgery can be very trying and also terrifying. I try my best to walk my patients through the entire process and I promise I'll be there for them before, during or after the procedures.  I pride myself on the personal care that I deliver and I try to think treat everyone the way I would treat a family member.

Dr Clapp performed emergency surgery on me and I was blessed with beautiful results. He is truly a caring and warm person. He listens, explains and makes one feel gratitude and respect for him. I have recommended Dr Clapp to my friends and will continue to do so. Dr Clapp, blessing always!

Dr. Clapp is a very professional, patient, and when you have a visit you feel that he does not rush through your appointment. In my personal case I had RNY Gastric Bypass in June 2005. After all these years, i developed a hiatal hernia and some additional intentional problems. Dr. Clapp performed my surgery and I am very pleased with the outcome. Also, the staff, Maggie the nurse is extremely kind and caring' I highly recommend this medical practice.

I was concerned when I met him because he is very young but my PCP recommended him so highly I put those concerns aside.
