Empathy and expertise...this is Dr. Clough’s credo. I was in a MVA which caused catastrophic damage to my nervous system and left me in extraordinary pain for over 16 years. Years of visits to pain experts were met with shrugged shoulders. Dr. Clough spent TIME studying my charts and listening. I’m an engineer and listened to his analytic, step-wise, and *compassionate* thoughts with awe as he showed mastery of his own subject and science in general. I have hope for the first time in years.

Dr. Clough followed my daughter from the age of 9. Always said she would need a surgery as an adult. I feel like he used her as a guinea pig for a total disc replacement. She turned 18 and came in on her own and talked her into surgery and how much better she will feel. He did the surgery and she now has left foot drop that he will not address and say he doesn't know what to tell us it just wasn't a successful surgery. 3 other surgeons have told us this surgery was stopped many years ago.

Dr. Clough is outstanding! He is very careful in listening to your problem and offering different things to help. The wait to see him can sometimes be long, but well worth it. My sister referred him to me after he saw her and did surgery on her neck a few years ago. So glad to have found him! Thank you for all you do.

I first met Dr. Clough way back in approximately 1996 I had been hit by another car in the rear and my cervical spine needed a steel plate put in right away and lucky for me, Dr. Clough and his assistant nurse Vicki Casey took fabulous care of me. Dr. Clough is well known for spending ample time with each and every patient and they never over-book the office. When you walk in to the front desk it's nothing but smiles and a feeling of warmth and a "family atmosphere" which is difficult to find.

If you want the best professional care then Dr. Clough is the one to contact. I have never felt so informed, cared about and trusting in a surgeon, and I have had several over the years. You will get Dr. Clough's undivided attention when with him. You will get the most respected doctor in the field by his peers and colleagues. Everyone that I speak to has heard of his work and his impeccable reputation proceeds him everywhere. I am in the best hands I could be.

I have been a patient of Dr. Clough's for several years. It is easy to leave an excellent review for him. He is a kind, caring practitioner who is the best at his profession. After following my condition, he operated on my cervical spine because it was unstable and gave me a great deal of pain. This surgery alleviated my pain and I resumed all previous activities. I would strongly recommend Dr. Clough.

Listens to your questions and concerns, pays attention to details and offers down to earth explanations. You feel as if you are talking with a close friend, not your doctor. A first class operation, physician and staff.

Dr. Clough is a brilliant physician as well as a compassionate human being. He spent part of my appointment discussing possible pain relief treatments for my daughter that has advanced cancer. I appreciated him taking the time to talking with me about possible ways to improve her quality of life. He then spent a lot of time reviewing my MRI and talking with me about a plan of care. Being and RN I appreciate his conservative approach to treatment versus immediate surgery. Great doctor!

If you need a neurosurgeon look no further. He's a great doctor who has operated on my neck twice. I will need future procedures due to my condition and will come back to him. Great staff. Great facility.

Outstanding. I returned from a trip out of state and was having difficulty walking because of an issue with my back. An MRI was ordered, options were layout in an easy to understand manner and when I made my decision Dr Clough open a space in his busy schedule to get me into surgery. The results of the surgery have vastly exceeded my expectations. A first class operation from Dr Clough through all of the people that assisted me in the office staff.

Dr. Clough was very personable and kind. His assistant explained things in great detail before he came in to see me. He assessed my situation quickly and made a recommendation for an additional procedure that he thought would help for a better long-term "fix" on my back. He scheduled the surgery quickly, and IT WAS SUCCESSFUL!!! I am so grateful for his expertise and skill. I had never thought I wanted back surgery because of hearing of so many others who had problems, but it worked!
