Knowledgeable. Has a sense of humor but 100% serious about your care. His nurse Amanda is great. Relatable and always a laugh and smile.

Dr. Smith took great care of me when I needed bunion surgery. He saw me for a follow up appointment on Christmas Eve. His "bedside manner" made me feel at ease before and after surgery.

Ingrown toe nail. For the first time in my life, age 68, I had a bad big toe that caused me very much pain and didn't know what was wrong with it. I poked around at it for almost 5 weeks. Red, swollen and puss oozing out from beneath the nail. I finally made an appointment with Clayton. He told me step by step what he was going to do to correct the problem. That night I felt sooo much better, and by the next day had almost no pain at all. Piece of cake. That was 5 months ago, my toe is fine.

All 3 members of my family have seen him for various issues over the years starting with my need for bunion removal. The whole process including surgery, went remarkably smoothly. He kept me informed of what to expect, I healed well with no complications and I was very well pleased with the results which are still is still evident 10 years later. He's currently treating me for another issue. Although I'll eventually have to have surgery, he's not pushy about it.
