Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Clemons "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."
