What People Say About Dr. John Clay, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have been a patient of Dr. Clay's for about 12 years and as I have progressed from a middle aged man to a senior citizen Dr. Clay has helped me navigate the health issues that arise from the aging process. During my last appointment I was extremely grateful for his help with some of my chronic Cardiac issues because my Cardiologist is closed due to the Coronavirus. He coordinates my health care with my various specialty Physicians and is always aware of any issues that have occurred outside of his purview. His manner is easy and pleasant and that belies the serious nature with which he regards his profession. I am fortunate to have him as my primary care physician!

Dr. Clay is awesome! Not only is he very thorough, he takes the time with you to explain things in layman’s terms, he also goes through all of your options, pros and cons to each and answers all of your questions. I have never felt rushed or like I was on a time limit.

Dr. Clay takes the time to address any issues I have and he also asks how past issues are. I never feel rushed when we talk and can ask for explanations of meds and instructions so I fully understand why and how I'm taking them. He is concerned about my health and helps me know how to take care of myself.
