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.

Dr. Clapp says...

I am board-certified in general surgery and I'm currently a Fellow in American College of Surgeons.  I keep up in my field and I am published in my field. You may also notice I will have l medical students and residents that will be attending the clinic and also be in the operating room with me. I feel it's my duty as a surgeon to also be a teacher to the next generation.

Dr. Clapp says...

I'm a fellow of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeons and I am very qualified to perform gastric bypass, gastric sleeve and revisional  bariatric procedures. I performed over 2000 Bariatric cases.   I also considered an expert in foregut  procedures especially performed laparoscopically.   My contributions of surgical literature can be reviewed on pub med.
