I would definitely recommend Dr Clain, he was more than patient with my years of indecision about my surgery and was compassionate and comprehensive with the best of care once I did decide to have the surgery. I always felt like I was in the best hands I could be under his care.

Dr. Clain was recommended to me by several very satisfied patients. He treated me for a recurring cyst on my foot. While It didn't look like much, it was painful. He patiently answered my questions and responded to my concerns. After surgery and a few days of recovery, I was pain free and up and walking. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome.

After a year of frustration over problems with a foot and ankle, Dr. Clain swiftly and competently diagnosed the problem and recommended a surgical correction. Normally I would be very skeptical about needing surgery but Dr. Clain convinced my wife and I it was the proper course; he was completely right. He pledged I would walk comfortably and without the aid of any brace or cane within five months of the surgery for a trip across Italy - mission accomplished. His staff is awesome too. 5 stars!!

Dr. Clain performed bilateral bunionectomy surgery for me this year and I couldn't be happier with the care he provided. His surgical skills are known to be outstanding, and they are matched by his compassion and attentiveness. I highly recommend him to anyone who is suffering from foot problems.

Dr. Clain is the best doctor to treat foot problems in Fairfield County, CT. He is a true professional, and also a very nice person. I recommend him highly.

I broke my ankle in Maine, and wouldn't have anyone else do the surgery necessary to fix it, so I had to drive all the way down with my leg in a cast. Dr. Clain is capable, competent and a great surgeon.

I wish all doctors were as competent, kind, professional and concerned as Dr. Clain is. He and his staff are all terrific. I had a bone spur removed and an arthritic joint cleaned out on my big toe by Dr. Clain on May 17, 2016. I am now wearing whatever shoes I like, and have been given the go ahead to resume all my activities(tennis, distance walking, etc.). I highly recommend Dr. Clain. No need to have hurting feet! Dr. Clain is the best!

Four years ago I had comprehensive bunionectomies on both feet, one month apart, and repairs of 3 hammertoes on each foot at the same time. The surgeries healed beautifully and I was able to dance in high heels at my daughter's wedding less than a year later. I have also seen him for sprained ankle evaluations. Excellent manner and highly skilled. Recommend without hesitation. No need to leave Greenwich for foot and ankle conditions.

Dr. Clain fused my ankle with excellent results. He is an excellent surgeon and I trust his technical skill and judgement without reservation!

I had bunion surgery six years ago, and around the same time so did my neighbor and my mother in-law. Not one of us had anything but bad results. I still have a bunion and the index toe is overlapping the middle toe. My mother inlaw had to have another surgery recently to fix her toe that would not lie flat that Clain had operated on. My neighbor also stil has a bad bunion. I had my other foot done two years ago by another surgeion with very good results. For bunions, avoid Dr. Clain.
