What People Say About Dr. Joy Clore, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I switched from a clinic that repeatedly denied my request for a minor surgery and then dropped me as a patient when I had to cancel an appointment, citing "not conforming to treatment plan." I booked an appointment with Dr. Clore and her first question was why I hadn't been offered the surgery that I had been requesting for 2 years from the other Dr.! She's very personable, takes her time to listen, and quick to get to the bottom of any issue.

Dr. Clore is very personable and professional. I had a repeat c-section which she performed. My incision healed way better than my previous incisions, and thanks to her advice breastfeeding also got off to a wonderful start! She also was very respectful of my decisions regarding my health choices. It was a breath of fresh air to have her as my OB after so much trouble in past pregnancy with other OBs.

Worst ob/gyn ever. She doesn’t listen, isn’t understanding or compassionate, and laughs at your concerns.

Professional, Sympathetic, Kind, Knows what she's doing. When we got pregnant with our 2nd child, I chose to go to see Dr.Saunders (now Dr.Clore). Sadly, our 2nd child was still born at 23 weeks. Dr.Clore and her Nurse Angela were so good to me. Dr.Clore didn't make me sit in waiting room around all of the pregnant moms and brand new babies. They had me sit in the back waiting area away from everyone. It really helped me move forward. If we decide to have another Dr.Clore will be our doctor.

Dr. Clore was very nice, but very rushed with me. I had my very first appointment with her today and I felt extremely rushed. I spent a total of 2.5 hours at the clinic, it was so behind. Absolutely insane. I'm considering going to another practice because of the clinic itself. It's one thing to wait an hour in the waiting room, but at least make it worth the wait with an exceptional appointment where I don't feel rushed.

At first I was nervous for have to switchto a different physician 6 months into my pregnancy (we moved to Kansas City). Dr. Clore made me feel comfortable and when it came time to actually having the baby I felt she went above and beyond!! From coming in to check on me when she wasn't even on call. To coming into the hospital at 2am (again, not on call). And finally performing a necessary c-section. My husband and I were both impressed with her bedside manner!
