in Limon, CO |
I've been going to Dr. Claussen for about 10 years now and will continue too as long as possible. I have always found him to be very conscientious and leaving nothing to chance in my care. He has never been at a loss when answering my questions and explains things in way that is easy to understand. I also find him very personable, easy to talk openly and honestly too, and have never felt rushed during my visits. All of these qualities make me keep Dr. Claussen as my primary care provider.
