Patient Comments (3)
Lehi, UT |
I found this doctor to be short-tempered, irritable, and unpleasant. He missed--or just plain ignored--several results on blood tests indicating possible chronic infection. He saw that I was in severe pain and made reference to lifestyle choices as a possible underlying reason. The infection spread before I could see a doctor outside the HMO and be treated. I lost valuable time thus making treatment more complicated. If using this office see Cara Mellor first...competent and understanding.

Dr. Clemens has been able to diagnose and get me answers to my issues that I have be trying to resolve for 19 years. He takes a lot of time and helps you understand everything that is going on. A doctor who cares, has a personality and has empathy for you. It goes a long way.

Extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient's problems and makes wise calculated decisions on medications and further treatment(s). Has a great sense of humor and bedside manner (I've never had him at my bedside, however!). Would recommend Dr. Clemens to anyone.
