SBO Patient 10/15
Met Dr. R. Clemency in Feb 2015 due to referral of arthritis in both knees. On the first visit he stated I needed total knee replacement of both knees. From the first surgery on 3/30 to the second on 6/22 and all the visits and therapy, I have felt very comfortable with such a big decision. I am pain free for the first time in 20 years!

SBO Patient 10/15
Very professional, vey concerned, took time to explain everything!

SBO Patient 9/15
Not sure his recommendations did me any good. PT may have helped more.

SBO Patient 7/15
Was not the amount of time he spent in room that was only a few minutes, but it was his ability to cover all the bases succinctly, I feel a good Doctor should only need 5 minutes, just my personal preference.

SBO Patient 7/15
I felt like the Dr. was in a big hurry!

SBO Patient 7/15
Excellent physician.

SBO Patient 7/15
Dr. Clemency did my left hip several years ago and did a great job so I am very confident in him doing the same surgery on my right hip.

SBO Patient 7/15
Dr. Robert Clemency was very specific with instructions for post op care.

SBO Patient 6/15
Dr. Clemency is fantastic. He walked me through everything that was going to happen and explained the procedure thoroughly. He answered all questions I had and was very kind and caring - he eliminated my pain and gave me back quality of life.

SBO Patient 6/15
Dr. Clemency spent about 5 minutes with me and rushed out of the cast room. This is was the first time I had a child in a cast and felt rushed and as if my questions did not matter.

SBO Patient 5/15

Recommended already

SBO Patient 4/15

Good

SBO Patient 3/15

He was pleasant, but seemed rushed.

SBO Patient 3/15

I had a very good experience with the staff and doctor Thank you

SBO Patient 3/15

Dr Clemency is a very good doctor. I would go to him and recommend him anytime

SBO Patient 2/15

If the need arises, I will definitely return to SBO.

SBO Patient 2/15

Right to the point I like that.

SBO Patient 1/15

I had the best experience with Dr Clemency and his staff and I would tell anyone who is looking for a specialist that needs a new knee or hip.

SBO Patient 1/15

Have always like Dr. Clemency.  Many family members have used his expertise.

SBO Patient 12/14

Everyone was very friendly, and made me feel welcome. Dr. Clemency took ample time with my exam and reviewed everything with me.

SBO Patient 11/14

Again I was pleased with all the staff I encountered.

SBO Patient 11/14

I asked a lot of questions, and provider was appropriately responsive.  Although, if I had not asked questions, I would not know a lot about the condition I was treated for.  Perhaps, provider needs to explain the suspected dx a bit more clearly than oh yes, she has this dx, let’s give her this & do that, and she'll be fine.

SBO Patient 10/14

This was better that osmc.

SBO Patient 10/14

Had to ask if any exercises or therapy would be required.

SBO Patient 10/14

He was training someone or showing a student what / how to do things, so it made it confusing to me was he addressing me or the student.  Dr. stated something about a cortozone shot, and some others things, but wasn't sure what he was talking about or to whom.

SBO Patient 8/14
The doctor was great.

SBO Patient 7/14
Dr. Clemency has always gone out of his way to care for various members of our family in the quickest, most professional and efficient way possible. He takes time, in short, he Cares!

SBO Patient 7/14
I liked Dr Clemency very much on my first visit.

SBO Patient 6/14
Complete confidence.....he's the best.

SBO Patient 6/14
The finest physician that I have ever had.

SBO Patient 6/14
Dr. Clemency is awesome! Truly he wears a superhero cape. We were squeezed in to see him, we were under stress because of our daughter’s pain and not knowing what would happen and how it would impact planned summer activities. He alleviated our stress, aptly managed the pain, reassured my daughter who at times was very upset about the broken fingers, and the fact that he scheduled a surgical procedure for her on a Saturday morning was truly outstanding. We can't even begin to say enough thank yous to show how grateful we are to Dr. Clemency. I have been singing his praises to everyone I know since June 7th!

SBO Patient 5/14
Clemency is the best!

SBO Patient 3/14

I am extremely confident in Dr. Clemency, he has good people skills and communicates clearly and simply. He is also someone I consider a friend.

SBO Patient 12/13
I was very impressed with Dr. Clemency. I opted to go with Dr. C. because of previous hip replacements with others I have known. I must agree with all of them about his knowledge, ability, and patient handling.

SBO Patient 10/13
Have never had a bad experience with Dr. Clemency or his staff...have recommended to my friend who will be having knee surgery in December....I am very satisfied.

SBO Patient 8/13

SBO Patient 8/13
I think Dr. Clemency thought I was seeking drugs as I have a persistent pain in my surgery knee. He suggested Advil, but didn't address the problem.

SBO Patient 7/13
Perfection.

SBO Patient 7/13
