Dr. Clare clearly cares about his patients. He takes the time to talk about how their injury/pain/issue effects their life and how to change something to make it better. I fully trust this man with my sports injuries/issues. He did a surgery on my left knee 5 years ago. My knee was pain free for the first time since 2004. I will not go to anyone else.

Dr, Clare has been especially helpful when I had injured hamstrings in my leg and now a recent injury to my rotator cuff. His analysis and explanation of my injuries have been clear, straight-forward and delivered with concern for his patient. I consider myself fortunate to have his care.
