Dr. Clinefelter has helped me manage my chronic pain for a number of years. He has always been very good at coordinating my pain care with other medical conditions I have to deal with. Every time I have used his service he explained my options and once he commences with the procedure his explanations are thorough so one is ever “surprised “ by any steps taken. I have achieved considerable pain relief through his efforts and very thankful for his professionalism.

My experience with Dr Clinefelter has been great. He’s very thorough with questions on issues your having. He explains the procedure to you in your room and again on the table. I have great confidence in him and happy I found him.

Was treated by Sean for lower back pain. Ended up getting a spinal stimulator. Pain persisted as the stimulators are not a "cure-all". I knew this. He as a pain management doctor failed me when he said all options are exhausted and emphatically stated that medicine was "way too dangerous". I had been on medication for 5 years prior to going to him. He took my medication away and refused that option. I had to suggest a medication to him as an alternative and he down-played Celebrex. BAD!

Visited clinic for lower back pain. After multiple visits this physician could not remember what I was there for, what treatments he had previously given me and did not bother to check medications I had tried before(asking me repeatedly at each visit had a tried certain medications). Seemed obsessed with opioid addiction, repeatedly talking about Missouri's problem with no drug registry. Do not recommend.
