Hyperhydrosis

From the first visit with Doctor Clay all the way to the surgery was a superior experience. I was very concerned with my rare condition to begin with and he made me feel comfortable about the surgery, answered all my questions, and everything went exactly as planned. I was slightly disappointed with some of the organization and paperwork errors of Huntsville hospital, but this has no regard to Doctor Clay. I highly recommend this Doctor if you want a excellent and worry free experience.
