Albuquerque, NM |
I have been a patient of Dr. Clanton for 15 months. I went to him after 2 failed surgeries. He didn't push surgery on me. We tried a few other things first. It did become apparent that I needed surgery. I had surgery 8 weeks ago and every day I get a little stronger. He is an aamazing surgeon with passion for what he does and cares about each individual patient. He changed the way I'll be able to live my life now.
