I had an excellent experience during this appointment. All of the staff involved were extremely kind, helpful & knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend *Dr. Clifton to friends & family.

I was a bit apprehensive seeing a female doctor - My other male doc retired. My new doc, female, made me feel comfortable and at ease. before the appointment I was a bit uneasy. After the appointment, I realized I had no reason to be uneasy. the appt went very well.
