Patient Comments (3)
in Odessa, FL |
I went to Dr Clare after my third tassel tunnel release surgery. There was a "pea sized" thing near the incision site, which Dr. Clare said wasn't really there. However, after subsequent visits, each time being told nothing there, then told me that it was so close to the artery he might nick it. Sent me to vascular dr who said not close to artery would do surgery with him. Clare said not there. Now size of grape! Cannot do surgery ALL veins engorged with blood and I could bleed out per new doc!!

Dr. Clare listened, understood and is very knowledgeable about his practice. Don't be surprised if you see him owning his own practice soon. Thank you Dr. C, I am on my way to recovery.

worst Dr. and assistant ever. DO NOT USE. contact me with any questions. dr. Clare reconstructed both my heels. never once check up on me at hospital, had major complications and infection and could not even even get him or his worthless assistant Ann Marie to call me back. instead of sending me to a wound specialist referred me in house PT which caused additional infection have had to have heel removed, hardware out; charged me additional $3000. CHANGED DDR. & NOW HOPING TO KEEP MY FOOT.
