Clinkscales practice is A-1

I have a hand injury and had a bad experience with the first hand surgeon-- lousy bedside manner, lousy diagnosis, lousy treatment. So I went for second opinion and further treatment to Dr. Clinkscales and in every way, he is the complete opposite. Great manner, simple explanations, and the treatment is working.

THE VERY BEST

In 2005 Dr. Clinkscales saved my wrist. I had a very rare condition that needed surgery. Dr. Clinkscales saved my wrist from having to be fused. The surgery was painful, but well worth the result. I was very scared through the whole thing and Dr. Clinkscales was very supportive and kind. I can't imagine having any one else as my doctor in this event. I feel very blessed that he was there for me. Thank you Dr. Clinkscales.

Excellent specialist

Dr. Clinkscales provided excellent, skilled surgical and post-surgical treatment for my daughter. My only regret was that we had first visited a different specialist, who deeply misled us and made my daughter's injury worse. Dr. Clinkscales has been wonderful; I only wish that we had chosen him first.
