I have been a patient since 2004 with Dr. Clain. He has done amazing things with my ankle. I don’t think I would be walking today if it wast not for his expert surgery procedures. Thank you Dr. Clain. (5 Star Review on Google from John I.)

Dr. Clain- Thank you so much for sending me the hardware that was in my foot! It is sad to think that I won’t have to see you anymore to assist with my endless amount of foot problems! Thank you for everything you have done! -HH (Foot)


Dr. Clain- I want to thank you for taking such good care of me for my ankle surgery. It went much smoother than I expected and I know that’s in large part because of your care. From the moment I first consulted you, you were attentive and gracious. I appreciate your patience with all of my questions. You are remarkable in your ability to listen which I know is not easy in todays medical climate. I liked how you included me in looking at the x-rays and MRI before surgery and then the videos inside my ankle were fascinating. It was so helpful to have a visual of what you did. So I am so grateful for the many ways you took care of me. I am so happy to be recovering and progressing. You are a most excellent doctor! -BK (Ankle)


Dr. Clain- I am thrilled with my new feet! Your patience and time you gave to me through both surgeries helped to make it all that much easier and manageable. I am grateful and off to buy some new shoes!! -MM (Foot)
