Dr. Clifford performed a breast lumpectomy of a cancerous tumor. He was extremely caring and explained everything, even to draw a picture of the surgery procedure so I would know exactly what it would in tail. He was informative about the type of cancer I had and wanted us to ask questions. His staff is professional and kept track of me before and after surgery. I highly recommend him.

He doesn’t explain anything. Did not see him before or after what should have been a routine procedure on May 15, 2020, even when I was having complications afterward. The complications were NOT his fault; they were from anesthesia, but still didn’t see him. Was admitted to Baylor Grapevine, which administered 2 different meds it was well established I’m allergic to. Clifford never showed at all, but his partner, Edwards, showed up twice, unable to answer even basic questions because, as he pointed out, he didn’t do the procedure. I asked why Clifford wasn’t there, and Edwards told me it was the weekend. Bottom line: Either have him schedule his procedures conducive to his office hours or better, find a different surgeon.

Do not recommend for breast cancer. I have a very difficult time with him not explaining enough of what is going on. He seems not sure of cancer diagnosis. At the hospital stay overnight after surgery, he was not respond any nurse calls and missed diagnosis of any cancer surgery. Better to seek other surgeon.

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.
