Dr. Clifton is one amazing doctor. He did a hip replacement for me. I was using a walker, I would fall down because my hip would give out, my hip would lock up where I couldn't move. I was like that for almost 7 yrs until I saw Dr. Clifton. I am now at 6 month post surgery. walking without a walker and enjoying my life again. Thank you so much Dr. Clifton

Dr. Clifton is always there to ask about the concerns I have. He is great at listening and makes you feel like the only person on earth when he is listening to you. I highly recommend him for anyone who likes a doctor who is a good listener and who is good at their job. He is in it to help people, not for the money.

I have had total knee replacement on both knees within the last 7 months. I had not realized what major surgeries these were, but can report that my recoveries and healing have been amazing. Dr. Clifton pays such close attention to details such as the pre-operative instructions,his insistence upon physical therapy to begin within a week of surgery and his honest answers to all my questions (there were many). He very patiently answered every one and ended my apprehensions.
