Dr. McClelland's Care Philosophy

As a neuro-ophthalmologist, I often help bridge the gap between ophthalmology, focused on disease of the eye, and neurology, focused on disease of the nervous system, since both of these systems are vital to normal vision. Evaluating patients in neuro-ophthalmology clinic often requires reviewing the records of other providers, a thorough eye and neurologic exam, and at times additional comprehensive testing. As part of my deep commitment to patients, I spend ample time during our clinic visits seeking to determine what is causing their visual disturbance before transitioning to what treatments may be available. Communication amongst all providers and the patient is paramount in excellent medical care. In concert with the philosophies of the University of Minnesota, I am a strong advocate of advancements in medicine through research and education of younger physicians and students, allowing us to provide the highest level of care to our patients now and in the future.

Patient Comments (2)
in Maple Grove, MN |
I had adult strabismus surgery on June 5th, 2017, with Dr. McClelland and I am so very pleased with my results. I had double vision for over 4 years, having to have a prism in my glasses so that I would only see a single object rather than two. Dr. McClelland and his staff were extremely thorough in their examinations and also in explaining to me what they were doing and the results that I could expect. Their follow-up after the surgery was also very courteous and professional. They are the best

I wouldn't see any other doctor! He is fantastic, always professional, and spends time explaining everything and answering all questions. He's incredibly intelligent but not socially inept like many brilliant people. I would recommend him to all my friends and family.
