      In addition to being a really skilled surgeon, Dr. Clouse was very encouraging to me during and after my treatment. Because of his moral support, I was willing, even eager, to work hard to get well. He took away all my fears of getting a new knee.
      Muskegon, MI |
      I saw him for 3 minutes. Instead of talking of knee surgery he gave three weekly shots that cost a fortune. A nurse did it. I am still getting added bills after one year. The most greedy bunch I have ever seen. Bills $30 for a sterile tray to carry needles into room with. How can it be sterile carried by a woman with her bare hands down a hallway????Over a year later, I am still getting small bills for servivces.. Finally went to another Dr and got a second opinion and both said surger
      in AZ |
      He is the BEST! Had both my hips replaced in 2012. Walk everyday, pain free! Just got back from Hawaii where I did some hiking and Zip lining! He is understanding, explains thngs clearly and is very kind. I just love him and would highly recommend him to anyone!
      in Phoenix, AZ |
      Dr. Clouse is the BEST!! Fixed my torn rotator cuff and I am back and ready for action 4 months later and a full release to train again at 5 months. He knows his stuff!!!
