I had previous leg surgery, my symptoms came back and Dr. Clair not only fixed what was going on but made sure that everything from the previous surgery looked okay. I couldn't be more happy and impressed with Dr. Clair and his team. Have referred all family and friends to him.

I have already referred many friends and family to Dr. Clair. I wouldn't see anyone else! Dr. Clair was very thorough in his care and helping me figure out what was wrong with my foot. I am now pain free and able to get back to enjoying what I love.
