Dr. Clymer did a full hip replacement for me in January and I'm back for the left. He is a gifted surgeon, and his support staff are top shelf professionals from top to bottom.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Clymer for years now. It was during a time in my life when I was experiencing excruciating pain in my left hip, that I sought out help. Dr. Clymer welcomed the challenge, explained my prognosis in detail, and offered different avenues for relief. In 2013, I had a total left hip replacement and in August 2019, I had my right hip replaced as well. Dr. Clymer and his employees are amongst the most competent and capable medical staff I have ever come across. Their willingness to go the extra mile continues to touch my heart and still encourages my recovery. I would recommend his services to anyone experiencing pain that requires the skill of an ortho surgeon. I am happy to say, that although not completely recovered yet, my pain has diminished so much, that I am able to finally get back to my old routine. No doubt, my confidence level has been boosted, and knowing that I have access to Dr. Clymer and his team as I complete my journey, I am sure to be another on

While I had prior experience with Dr. Clymer, and had excellent opinion of him, my most recent experience in trying to see him for a consultation was deplorable. This is not a reflection of Dr. Clymer, but definitely is a poor example of how the practice is being run. I am sorry to see such an excellent surgeon be surrounded by such insensitive and uncaring staff.

October 25, 2003 he saved my left leg. The middle 8 inches of my Tibia was completely shattered along with a compound fracture of my Fibia. He smartly waited 4 days or so to make sure I had no infections BEFORE inserting a Titanium Rod. To this day I can take my shoes off and flip them upside down and the tread wear on the bottom wears symmetrically from my left heal to the right heal. I walk without a limp! The length of my left leg and rotation of my foot is exactly the same as before!

Dr Clymer did a operation on my lower back to alleviate leg pain caused by a herniated disk. It worked like a charm. Minimal down time after surgery and immediate relief. Would highly recommend.

Dr. Clymer is wonderful to work with. He did the surgery to clean up my torn right meniscus; and we follow up every so often with aspiration and cortisone to keep the knee in good working order. He is conservative on jumping into surgery (perfect), and practical, thoughtful and straightforward on the best options moving forward. I am SO glad I found him! I recommend him wholeheartedly, and will continue to see him into the future. His entire team is caring and wonderful.

Had a broken & displaced 5th metatarsal; was referred to Dr. Clymer. He presented 2 options-walking cast/crutches for healing on its own or surgery for an quick fix (pins/screws). Not eager for surgery & discussed the +/- of both, which he explained well so I could make an informed decision. Pleased w/his approach (& bedside manner) of presenting multiple options while giving his professional opinion which tended towards conservative treatment. No surgery & healing on track!!! Definite recommend
