Dr. Clayton sets the standard by which all other pediatric specialists are measured. Truly an extraordinary physician and one of the most compassionate, caring human beings I've ever met. He cared for my micro-preemie daughter for 16+ years. We had many years of difficulties and emergencies. Dr. Clayton and his colleagues and his staff, especially CNP Patti, were unfailingly responsive and supportive. Clinically there is no one stronger, and no other practice I would consider in Northern VA.

Wayne, PA – Oct 05, 2017
Calling a medical records department can be very aggravating & time consuming. many forms and documents need to be filled out, it can easily get frustrating. My experience was the complete opposite .With that said Grace in the medical records department has been nothing but helpful & has made this request overall effortless. She directed me to specific forms & answered any questions I had on spot without any hesitation. We need more of these characteristics in this field of work !

Let me begin by saying, my daughter will not see anyone else. I have never encountered a physician who illustrates compassion and a true understanding of the definition, physician. I have a daughter with SMA. The first time she as hospitalized with pneummonia, 3am, I felt a hand on my shoulder. Dr Clayton sat with me holding my daughters hand and assured me she would make it through this. I will never forget that.
