I had knee surgery on 5-9 and beforehand?, Dr Clifton listened to all of or questions and answered them. He returns calls quickly after I ha surgery and I got to talk to him. And he right away asked how I was doing. I will definitely recommend him to anyone.

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.
