I have seen other neurologists and feel I am able to make an educated comparison. Dr. Clemmons is obviously knowledgeable but beyond that he truly "thinks outside the box" with my unusual yet debilitating condition. I felt grateful for his insight, guidance, patience and willingness to listen. He is the best neurologist I have ever been to and I feel blessed that he was recommended to me. Obviously I give Dr. Clemmons 5 stars but feel he deserves even more.

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.
