January 23, 2017

I have gone to Brett Clayson for years. He is so good that now I drive all the way from Sandy just so I can continue with him as my doctor. He is knowledgeable and caring!

January 11, 2017

I think it would help if the provider had an idea of what insurance would cover when suggesting tests or treatments.

December 30, 2016

Brett Clayson is a competent and caring person. I have been extremely happy with his care for over five years.

December 28, 2016

He takes good care of my husband and me.

November 08, 2016

I went to Dr. Clayson twice in two weeks, and after taking antibiotics from my second visit, I still felt ill. He recommended I come back a third time for another assessment. I cannot afford to pay $75 (three copays) for him to tell me that he still doesn't know what is wrong. I feel like I am only gradually getting better after being sick for 24 days straight, and I don't think it had anything to do with the antibiotics. An illness this long feels like it could just be my body trying to recover on its own, which means I wasted $50 for him to tell me that he doesn't know what I have.

October 31, 2016

doctor Clayson received the profishnal notes from doctor Weenig that was a big concern.

October 30, 2016

I really like the doctors I see and very helpfulexcept for the fact I was told I would be seeing a pain doctor on Oct 27 and there was no pain doctor. The person who scheduled me I waited a month for this appointment for no reason. I am suffering in pain and would like feed back as to wgmhat and where I go now for pain management.

October 22, 2016

Mr. Clayson is a fine PA, and his interest and skill equal that of an MD.

October 17, 2016

Yes I would recommend the clinic to a friend.

September 30, 2016

The nurse could've done better at taking my vitals. The doctor was very friendly- had good bedside manners.

September 30, 2016

My first visit was this week with Brett Clayso, and I was very pleased and will continue to use this practice as my primary care physicians.

September 28, 2016

Brett Clayson is always friendly and compassionate. He doesn't hurry and spends time with me.

September 26, 2016

Great experiences. Just had a very stubborn sinus infection.

July 23, 2016

Dr. Clayson does an excellent job communicating with autistic individuals.

July 14, 2016

Brett is always friendly and takes his time with me, he answers all my questions!

July 06, 2016

Brett Clayson was wonderful

June 20, 2016

April 19, 2016


April 14, 2016

Always great.

March 29, 2016

Dr Clayson is always understanding and spends all the time I need with me. I really appreciate his care and concern.

March 23, 2016

Brett has been my PA for 10 years. I trust him and have recommended him to others.

March 22, 2016

Brett is always good. My whole family sees him (the only one my husband will go to). He has been amazing with my daughter.

February 27, 2016

He gave my daughter an antibiotic she needed. We have had strep in our home (her siblings) and she had had a fever for a week. After one day on the antibiotic she was nearly all the way improved. He could have made her wait it out and then she would have missed school until they finally saw it in pustules in her throat.. He gave us the antibiotic option. We picked it up and within hours she was doing so much better. I appreciate that he honored my mother's instinct instead of just his little flashlight in her throat. We don't have to visit him very often, but he is my favorite doctor at the clinic because he always listens to our concerns, weighs our health history, and helps us make good choices. He gives us choices. I like that.

February 23, 2016

First time not sure as compare to other doctors, hope this time better than other doctors I have visited in the past that don't have patience with me and misunderstood from an interpreter or from me, I don't know what going on from past doctors that I had problems with. I don't want to go through as start over and start over with new doctors in the futures that I had to change to different doctors, I am getting tired of it to repeat my health issues from the past to now, I want to keep the same Doctor longer than year or two year or less. No more. I want keep same Doctor so that the doctor know,e more better and know how to give,e a good care and treatments.

February 16, 2016

Brett Clayson is AWESOME!!!!

February 09, 2016

because of the medication I received I was feeling 100 better in two days! Appreciated the PA, Bret's willingness to listen to what has worked for me in the past since I don't get sick often.

January 07, 2016

Dr. Clayson always shows he cares about me and any problems or questions I have. He never seems rushed and is always patient and caring. I appreciate how he cares for me.

October 26, 2015

Thanks; it was a helpful experience

October 20, 2015

The doctor explained everything where I understood completely.

October 10, 2015

He really listened to every concern I had and it was a great experience. I appreciated that he took the time to make a goal plan if certain treatments weren't going to work out. I don't like taking medication and like to maintain more of a holistic approach and he was mindful.

October 03, 2015

Brett is one of my favorite providers. I am a complicated patient with many medical problems. Brett is great at looking at me as a whole patient instead of just disease. He is great with always asking what else he can do to help me. It is really appreciated.

September 29, 2015

Dr. Clayson is always friendly, caring and concerned about my issues. He spends his time explaining whatever needs to be explained. I like his bed-side manor. You can tell he cares!

September 23, 2015

Dr CLayson is very caring and sincere.

September 15, 2015

I liked that he was able to advise me against another prescription. I honestly wanted his advice not just medicine.

September 03, 2015

Brett really took the time to explain the problem, his concerns, and solutions as well as follow-up if needed.

August 13, 2015

The care provider Brett Clayson seemed to actually want to help me with my problem. I was happy with how he asked me if I wanted to be referred to another doctor at the time of my visit or wait a few days. I also was happy that he asked about my medication allergies.

August 11, 2015

Brett is a great listener.

July 21, 2015

At first a student nurse/doctor came in and was asking me question about my concerns and why I was there. I told him I have had pneumonia for a few months and was concerned I was not feeling well still. he then asked me if I had HIV! I was very offended! and No! he needs to be careful what kind of questions he is asking. He is not my doctor and never will be! I was very relieve when he left. it was very uncomfortable talking to him. Doctor Clayson is very good and understanding. he took care of my needs and very kind about it.

January 27, 2015

Truly appreciate finding a family doc who is willing to listen to what I say and not write me off as a hypochondriac or crazy old lady

January 26, 2015

he took time with me and was not rushed answered ally questions thoroughly

December 10, 2014

Brett is great!

November 25, 2014

I had a wonderful experience with Dr Clayson. I have had a hard time finding a doctor that I really feel like I get along with but he was great. I live in Sandy but i might drive down to orem for every appointment just so I can use him as my primary care physician

November 25, 2014

Brett is amazing!! He always takes the time to listen to my concerns, talks with me about options and is realistic about what to do. He is personal and approachable, while still being very professional. I couldn't ask for a better person to handle my health needs. I have referred several family members to him, and they love him as well!

November 13, 2014

I am fully confident in Brett Clayson's ability to assist me and have only the highest regards for him

November 12, 2014

Brett was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, caring, and spent adequate time answering my many questions and explaining things.

November 12, 2014

Brett was great as usual. He spent adequate time with my child answering questions and addressing my concerns. He didn't seem rushed or like he needed to hurry up to move on to another patient which he probably had waiting. I really appreciate the time he took with us. He gave me some great information to think about that I hadn't thought about much, which I really appreciate.

November 11, 2014

Brett is superb.

November 05, 2014

Brett Clayson is wonderful. I'm a terrible patient, seldom come in for checkups and I'm stubborn. He is so kind to me. This time he even called me after I was having difficulty with the side effects from my meds. He had to deliver the news that because of my drug allergies I could only choose between two drugs, and yes, he understood that I had unpleasant side effects but those were my options. He told me to get back on a med after I'd gone off. It's one thing to like a doctor when he's telling you what you want to hear but another to respect and like a doctor when he's giving you some news you don't want. He's had to do this a few times over the years and I am so glad he is patient with his terrible patient. He is wonderful, and kind even when I'm difficult.

September 24, 2014

I would recommend the Parkway center to all my friends

August 22, 2014

Brett always does a great job on patient care. There were some medicines I was prescribed which I would like to have known more about. Maybe some additional testing for the issue would have made me feel more confident.

July 03, 2014

I have always liked Brett Clayson. He's the best medical person that I've ever been to.

June 27, 2014

In the past I was given a sheet of paper reminding me of what I needed to do next and reviewing what was done at this appointment. I didn't get one this time, so I don't know if I was supposed to ask, or what. I do know that I need to make an appointment for one month, so I'll ask when I make the appt.

June 27, 2014

In my previous visit Brett Clayson recommended, due to my family history of blood clots, to do a blood test called Factor 5, I believe. When he went over the test, this test had not been done. I guess he had not typed it into the lab request. I was VERY disappointed with this. He said he would ask for it in three months after taking cholesterol lowering medication.

June 21, 2014

Brett is to communicate with, and is caring and helpful.

May 06, 2014

Dr. Clayson is always friendly and shows he cares about me. I really appreciate the time he spends with me. He always answers all my questions and gives me good, helpful information.

April 30, 2014

I had a rattling cough in my chest for three weeks and was weak, winded, and miserable. Clayson prescribed the right antibiotic and I quickly recovered after suffering for such a long time. I love that he takes my concerns seriously and he respects what I know about my body. When I say I know something is wrong he doesn't bat it away but actually looks at the issue and helps to resolve it.

April 17, 2014

This was a follow-up visit to see if I'd had success speaking with the ENT doctor he had referred me to. He listened attentively as I explained how that referral had led to another referral and then 2 appointments with the goal of solving my problem.

April 08, 2014

I would recommend specially to friends and loved ones.

March 20, 2014

Brett is extremely personable while remaining professional. He always takes all the time I need and answers any questions I have in a complete and understandable way. His genuine concern and professionalism are an excellent combination that makes me feel very confidant and good about the decisions and care I am getting. I feel that I could not ask for a better person to handle my health care.

February 07, 2014

Dr. Clayson seems to have a genuinde interest in my conditions and a desire to help my health improve

January 13, 2014

I was seen by Brett this time. He is a very competent medically, and a great person. He always demonstrates unhurried concern, listens to all my issues and provides me with realistic and easy to understand explanations. He gives me all the options for treatment for any issues, and offers advise when asked. He is very professional, but makes you feel like you are talking to a doctor who is a very good friend. A rare treasure these days.

December 27, 2013

Will go back, but time before was thinking of not going back to the clinic.

December 12, 2013

I do like doctor clayson

December 04, 2013

October 28, 2013

Brett is always very friendly, explains the problem going on with my child and I, typical course of the problem, treatments with both benefit and risks involved. He seems very knowledgable about what he is doing and is always willing to answer my questions. He spends time with us and provides excellent care. I recommend him to my friends.

May 24, 2013

Dr. Clayson helped us understand when my daughter would need medication and when she wouldn't for an anxiety problem. He told us about some inexpensive generic allergy medication in pharmacy there ($1.89 for generic claritin... Has seriously changed our lives...sniffle free for a week now, thanks Dr. Clayson). I love how patient he is when he's educating us. He answered every question we had and made sure we understood everything he taught. He even walked my daughter through breathing exercises to calm her down. Wonderful!

May 06, 2013

Excellent !

April 29, 2013

It was wonderful that he knew so much about medications for my son who is allergic to so many.

April 25, 2013


April 23, 2013

I have been VERY impressed with Brett. My wife and mother now see him for all their care.

March 22, 2013

March 05, 2013

January 28, 2013

Brett Clayson is an outstanding individual. I think fondly of him as an admirable friend.

December 26, 2012

So many times I have felt like a number during a doctor visit. Dr. Clayson took a lot of time ensuring he was giving me the proper care. I felt very comfortable with him and the nurses, which is personally difficult for me. Very happy with my experience.

December 19, 2012

I was happy with the care provider. I thought he gave me the best advise he could about the problem I was having. Although I didn't want to go to the ER, I ended up there because that was what was required. He was very helpful in guiding me in that decision, giving me logical things to think about when making that decision and calling the ER to let them know I was on my way over.

December 19, 2012

I've seen Brett Clayson for my own medical issues so I was pleased that he was who would be helping my son with his ear infection. Brett has a way of making a patient feel like there's no where else he'd rather be. He's also probing with questions to uncover causes of symptoms instead of just throwing out medication to treat them. He's thorough.

December 05, 2012

The doctor was very nice and made me feel very comfortable

November 30, 2012

I was confused about who will contact me to get my ultra sound done to screen for for cancer. I also mentioned I would like to get something filled for sleep. But he brushed it off and said he would rather deal with the cancer symptoms and we can talk about anxiety and depression later. That annoyed me.

November 19, 2012

Worst patient care ever. he did not listen to my problem and told me i was wrong when i know my own body. I felt like he he did not listen care or do his job right. i will never go back and tell others not too as well .

October 31, 2012

Brett Clayson is the best . . . he is always tuned in to what my husband or I are visiting with him about.

October 22, 2012

He was amazing and truly seemed to care about me. He talked to me about all my problems and even let me know that he was there for me if I ever needed to talk. I felt cared about and am more confident in myself after talking with him.

October 15, 2012

Dr Clayson is always very attentive and caring. He always explains my meds, treatment, etc. He is very concerned and spends all the time I need with me.
