I couldn't get a visit with Dr. Clinton. Her website advertises how she cares about patients with Scleroderma. I called her office to make an appointment and they refused to accept me as a new patient because they don't take my insurance, CIGNA. I advised that I would pay out-of-pocket and they still refused. She clearly doesn't care about patients at all.

Dr Clinton seemed to care when I initially saw her, but each appointment over the years was a bit different. Sometimes she seemed very disinterested, or impatient. I eventually came to the conclusion that she didn't want to manage difficult problems. She wouldn't listen, and showed zero empathy. She let me down, and treated me like garbage at time when I most needed help. I wouldn't recommend her for any reason given her unreliability and antagonistic attitude.

I am so grateful for the care, patience and attention Dr. Clinton has provided me since my diagnosis of Psoriatic Arthritis. She has treated and kept my diagnosis under control with appropriate testing and monitoring. I will be forever thankful to her for making the diagnosis and seeking the best option of care for me. Additionally, her staff has always been very helpful, attentive and prompt with returned calls. I highly recommend Dr. Clinton and her respectful staff.

I have been seeing Dr Clinton for RA for over 6 years. She has always taken the time to go over everything with me in detail, lab reports, medication issues, new studies, etc. She listens and responds to my every concern and question. She went through several medications with me to find the most effective. Her office is very organized and very advanced technologically. Very little wait time, I appreciate a physician who treats my time as it is as valuable as hers. I highly recommend her.

This dr is a total narcissist! She doesn’t listen to you, cuts you off, disregards your symptoms. She gets irritated if you misunderstand her or presumes to know more than her. She even gets hostile with you to the point of yelling at you. I would never recommend her and would never go back to see her.

HORRIBLE, She knows NOTHING about treating Scleroderma. She kept referring my family member to other specialist instead of addressing the necrotic finger in front of her face. Because of her lack of knowledge or concern it was too late when we finally did go to someone that could help. They had to amputate the finger because she let it go too long. She never even considered specialty medications for treatment.

I believe Dr. Clinton is an excellent rheumatologist. I have been one of her patients for several years. She listens to the patient and we always work together when deciding on a course of action to eliminate pain. Her recommendations are effective and she always follows up with appropriate lab work and office visit..Her office staff is friendly and professional. Also, my time is valuable, no long waits in the office to see Dr. Clinton.

I have been with Dr. Clinton for about 4-5 years and I am so overly please with her care. Dr. Clinton is always on point with her diagnosis always caring and concerned, she always knows me on a personal level and knows what our last conversations were about no matter how long ago it was. I find that she is very knowledgeable in her practice.Dr.Clinton always makes sure you are not taking more meds than needed I enjoy Dr. Clinton and recommend her to every one I know that needs a rheumatologist

It takes a few visits to know your doctor, especially if there is 50 years difference in age. Also, I have a rare disease - Dermatomyositis. Dr Clinton has been cooperative and caring and I trust her to manage my care.

Dr. Clinton is the best. She listened to me and my past experiences, what my ailments were, and understood that I didn't present symptoms like most people do. She went through my records with me, suggested a new medication, made adjustments where necessary. I knew I had chosen her for a reason--I specifically sought out a younger doctor simply because I know they aren't set in their ways and do things the same old way. She didn't disappoint at all!

I never thought that I would have needed a Rheumatologist, but when I was diagnosed with Wegeners my primary care physician recommended Dr. Clinton. I was immediately impressed at how easy I felt with her. She is easy to talk to and she listens to all my concerns and answers all my questions. Dr. Clinton's staff is wonderful I am blessed and grateful to be her patient. Thank you Dr. Clinton and staff

I have found her to be willing to listen to all of my questions (and I have lots). She takes the time to discuss my treatment options and is honest with me about the pros and cons of each of the treatment options. I appreciate her attitude and professionalism. She is not afraid to make changes to my treatment plan, I get lab work done in the office and I feel like she works hard to stay abreast of new information regarding rheumatoid arthritis. I feel that I receive excellent care.
