Dr. Clingan has been my doctor for 4 years and I wouldn't have it any other way. She is caring, kind and takes the time to help you with your pain. I trust her and when I get my shots, she is very gentle. Her staff is also very helpful and kind. I am so thankful I found a caring pain management doctor here in Atlanta. Thank you guys!

I need to say a little more about Dr.Clingan. Every time I walk into a grocery store, bring in the trash cans, go to the mall I think of her and of Dr. Carlson from her last practice. I never cease to be amazed that I am able to do not only those things, but everything else I can do, now. I never ever take one step for granted. I can't find words to say how grateful I am. N.

Dr. Clingan diagnosed incapacitating pain after lower back surgery. My surgeon referred me to her. After taking time to listen to me, she changed the locations of prescribed injections from my lower back to my SI joints. Immediate relief. I had to have ablations on both sides as the shots wore off after a few weeks. If she hadn't diagnosed my problem correctly, I wouldn't be enjoying a relatively pain free life for the past six months.
