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.

I asked the NP for a mycoplasma pneumonia test after a coworker said his doctor put him on antibiotics for m. pneumonia, and his doctor said m. pneumonia was epidemic where we worked. I had respiratory problems thus I asked the NP for the test and she agreed, but she would have to ask Dr. Clemens. I heard them in the hallway and he said ?We just don?t run tests in this office.? She came back in the exam room and gave me the news that the doctor declined to order the test.

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.
