Dr. Clancy removed my gallbladder in October of 2017. He got me into surgery very quickly and my recovery has been smooth. I am very satisfied with the care I am recieving from him

By far the worst experience I have ever had and I wasn't even the patient. We met with Dr. Clancy and I can honestly say he is one of the rudest people I have ever met. He has the worst bedside manner I have ever encountered and I have worked in the health care environment. I don't know how he is...more
