Care Philosophy

As a child I had a heart condition and spent a lot of time in and out of doctors offices and hospitals. So I was inspired at an early age toward a career in medicine. I love taking care of women in all stages of their lives. We have young healthy women having babies and we have middle-aged women going through other transitions such as menopause. The surgical aspect of our specialty is very important to me as I also enjoy and take pride in my surgical skills. What makes our practice unique is not just our very well-trained physicians but also that we have other very well-trained physicians of all specialties at our fingertips. So when our patients do have complications or issues that require other specialists we have the ability to get them in quickly. We also have a premier intensive care nursery so in the unlikely event than infants need help we can provide that easily as well. I have two children and enjoy following them around to all their sports activities.

Dr. Clifford is the best in her field--she is an extremely intelligent physician who takes time to talk over any medical issues that may concern you. Her office staff is also excellent--everyone is very professional--I cannot recommend anyone higher than Dr. Clifford!

She is so impatient and always rushed. Looks like she has zero empathy and interest for patient.
in Cary, NC |
Went in for a 20 week appointment with some concerns over the baby's heart rate. We said we were a pregnant from an IVF cycle (not our first one). She basically told me just to stop worrying. It wasn't very comforting for a pregnant woman and husband with so much worry about losing their pregnancy. I also asked to see my weight chart like the other provider had showed me last time, and she just said, you're fine, I looked at the chart. Keep doing what you're doing. Just rushing us out.
