I had a great experience with Dr. Clarkeson from the moment I was diagnosed with breast cancer and consulted with him regarding reconstruction through my second, more recent procedure, for a capsulectomy and exchange. Very caring, always takes as much time as I need to answer any questions that I have. Excellent care, would definitely recommend him.

We saw Dr. James Clarkson for over two yrs for a hand injury. It is normal in his office to wait for 20-30 mins before you can see him. One time we had to wait for 1&1/2 hrs. And when we complain about the wait, lady at front desk tried to move appointment back trying to make me look like I was late. She finally backed off but very cunning staff. BTW, don't go to this doc, if you don't like waiting in prison cell like procedure room.

Dr. Clarkson performed my breast reduction surgery last month and so far I couldn't be happier with my results! From the beginning he has been honest, very patient and answered every question thoroughly. Because of his attention to detail, my results have exceeded my expectations.

I had Dr. Clarkson for a breast reduction. I'm 26. He was very personable and comforting. I am currently almost a month post op and I've seen him every week since surgery. His results are great! As I haven't gotten to a final product, everything is going smoothly thus far. He pays attention to detail and takes measures for preventative care as well!!
