Dr. Clay takes the time to help his patients, not just hurry on to the next appointment. I also like that he has a 2nd provider taking notes so he can focus on the treatment rather than on a computer.

I am 61 and we had seen the same family doctors’ group for 20 plus years until HCA decided to close the office. Today’s norm is PAs or NPs staff with no medical doctor on site and that concerns me. However, John Clay and Brandy [office mgr] had been with the former office and are now in Colonial Heights. We are now Dr. Clay’s patients and it has been a seamless transition. The office and medical staff members are professional, genuine, knowledgeable, and caring people. Respectfully submitted,

I as very impressed with Dr. Clay's knowledge and caring attitude. We discussed my health issues for nearly 30 minutes and I was very comfortable discussing my care. I had recently come over to Dr. Clay after my primary care doctor of 30+ had retired, so it was comforting to have someone like Dr. Clay taking up where my previous physician had left off.
