What People Say About Dr. Edward Clifford, MD

I wrote a one-star review about this doctor a while back. Since then, Dr. Clifford has displayed a great deal of professionalism and care. Perhaps he wasn't his usual self when I saw him for my first visit. The front desk staff seemed rude, however. I don't blame him for that, though.

Dr. Clifford had what I felt was poor bedside manner. I felt like he thought my questions were absurd. His explanation of my condition contradicted the radiologist's report. When he lifted the gauze I had covering my infected biopsy site, he cringed and put the dirty gauze back in place. He didn't offer to re-dress the wound, or ask a medical assistant to do so. I feel like he was cocky and remiss, and overall I feel like I wasted time and money on my visit with this doctor. Would not recommend

I would recommend Dr. Clifford to anyone. He's got a calm personality, answers questions and is very easy going. Love him. His assistant doesn't seem to care about anybody, but he's wonderful. Front desk lady and check out lady are nice.

In my opinion, Dr. Clifford is a very good surgeon with excellent people skills. His staff, however, is very unprofessional and difficult to deal with. Awful experience overall. Wish I had gone elsewhere.
