June 06, 2014

I read that doctors really only have 15 minutes per patient. I always have my questions and requests for refill of prescriptions really. Dr. Clegg always address my concerns and questions in an empathetic and thorough manner.

good

May 19, 2014

I never feel rushed in my office visit with Dr. Clegg. He's always personable and proactive regarding my health. All of my questions are respectfully addressed.

May 12, 2014

I hope Dr. Clegg teaches other providers how to treat patients. He always treats me with respect, interest and compassion. While I understand that providers need to enter data into the computer system during the visit, some fail to ever make eye contact or treat patients as though they are more than what shows up on the computer screen. Dr. Clegg manages to do it all! I have confidence that he understands all of my health issues very well.
