Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Clopton's Care Philosophy

My philosophy is not to simply see patients get better, but to see patients get well. The goal is not to minimize symptoms, but to resolve symptoms. I want patients to say, "I feel normal." This involves not only treating symptoms, but minimizing side effects. I tell my patients, "I don't treat brains, I treat people." I want patients to experience the benefits of treatment, while minimizing or eliminating side effects. I have a PhD in Neuropharmacology which allows me to best match a particular set of symptoms to a particular treatment intervention. My aim is to individualize treatment, thus I don't generically treat a disorder, I treat the particular symptoms that a particular patient is experiencing with a particular disorder.
