Dr. Clevenger is very knowledgeable and thorough. She takes the time to properly care for her patients. My husband, son and I went to see her, and she was interested in helping us find solutions. Her office is clean with a very kind office staff.

Sharon is extremely knowledgable, patient and kind. She is really interested in how her patients feel and makes sure to take our personal preferences into her planning. I don't feel like a number at her office!

Everyone is super friendly. I have been to so many other doctors who just kept prescribing more and more pills. She took the time to really understand my problem and now I don't have any more problems. Great choice and I'm so relieved I found her!
