Excellent bedside manor, caring and kind. Nurse Tonia is the best !

I was worse after surgery. I notified Clawson. He turned his back and walked away from me. This person does not listen to the people he treats. Stay away from Mark Clawson.

I found Dr. Clawson (and his staff) to be refreshingly normal, professional (and casual)...and best of al...PREPARED. I will fly back from my current residence in CostaRica to have further care as needed...he is worth it (and so am I).
Extremely kind, practical, and reasonable. Took the time to draw a description of ligaments & tendons, which explained my flexing problems.
