Care Philosophy

Pelvic floor disorders can cause a tremendous amount of silent suffering, as many women are too embarrassed to discuss the problem. Fortunately, awareness of these conditions has increased and advances in technology and evidence-based medicine have improved diagnosis and treatment. I enjoy helping patients choose the treatment that matches their goals and improves their quality of life.

I was worried at first not knowing what to expect. After having everything explained to me, I felt at ease. Dr. Clemons I must say is the perfect Doctor for what I had done. I would highly recommend him for your needs.

Dr. Clemons is a highly qualified physician with considerable experience in his specific area of female medicine. I was referred to him by an OB/GYN physician who I have known and trusted for a longtime. Dr. Clemons is confident in his knowledge and abilities; enough so, that he patiently listened to my concerns and included them in all decision making.
Tacoma, WA |
If you are looking for a straight forward, in and out, do your job kinda guy, Dr. Clemons is it. He's there to tell you what's going on, make a decision and move on. Be prepared with a lost going in if you have questions. Like all docs these days, he sees several patients and many aren't alotted that much time. He's one of the top rated docs in the area for a reason. Clean surgery and efficient appts. If you are looking for someone to hold your hand, he might not be the right guy.
in Wilkeson, wa |
Dr. Clemons is kindhearted and professional doctor. He looks out for your best interest. He's insightful about his patients and informative about my surgery and the procedures. He made me feel comfortable. Had a great experience with my first surgery. I highly recommend him for every woman on this earth you will not be disappointed plus he smells great!
in Lacey, WA |
Once surgery is complete, he has no time to answer questions, or spend time with you. When questioned why he said last time he was teaching a student dr. The only thing he was teaching was how to be rude and ignore the patient.
in Tacoma, WA |
Doctor Clemons is still using recalled vaginal mesh.
