Waited over a month. Dr didn’t listen when I explained my issues. Told me to do PT at college rec? I am having to drive 3 hrs home to see someone else who I know listens. Lack of concern and attention. Wouldn’t recommend at all.

I had a on the job injury that broken my right hip and herniated L1L2L3L5S1 disc in my back . Dr claytor frist put hardware in my hip and 6 months later my leg was 1 inch to short and the hardware came apart he never did anything to my back up today I'm still mess up. But he had to go back in my hip and he did a complete hip replacement that still not working I can't pick my leg up no high then a inch off the ground but he says he can't find anything wrong with it and as far as my back he says it not work relayed and I never had a back problem in my life . And now it's a struggle everyday to just get up and keep going . I'm not saying it all him cause I think workman comp had rhere hand in it to . But he could have talked up and said this is not going to work . I have life time medical on this hip but it want be dr Claytor doing it . He may be a good dr if it's not workman comp . But if you reading this please do some research and get a second dr to look at it just to make sure .

I met Dr. Claytor recently after being referred to him by my diabetic doctor for a knee replacement. We waited about 1 1/2 hours from our appointment time but after seeing how much time he spent with us answering ALL our questions plus explaining exactly how the knee replacement is done, I understood why the wait time. It is impossible to find a doctor that is so willing to spend as much time as you need to take care of all your fears and anxieties. Most doctors want to rush in & spend maybe 5 minutes at most with you and then they are out the door and gone. Dr. Claytor sits there, looks you in the eye and answers every question you may have. He deserves 5 GOLD stars for his patience and compassion. He is wonderful!!!! I have no hesitation about my upcoming surgery now.

Waited two hours to be seen and he spent maybe 10 minutes with me. He expressed that he didn't really understand why I was there and without looking at any of my X-rays claimed that I do not have scoliosis. I already had been told by two previous doctors that I do and it was confirmed again this week via a cat scan. He did not examine me and was adamant that there is no scoliosis and there is nothing he can help me with. I will be seeing a different orthopedic surgeon this upcoming week.
