      Dr. Clemmons is everything a physician should be and much more. I'm a RN and have encountered many doctors over the years. Dr. Clemmons is knowledgeable, kind, caring, compassionate, and listens. He spends adequate time with me to answer questions and his exams are thorough. I'm so grateful to have him and highly recommend him.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
