Excellent Physician. Shoulder replaced December 2015 and have had no problems with his work. He is a caring person who takes time to explain the procedure and answer any question you have. Doesn't seem rushed, though I know he has a full case load. If he is not the Number 1 upper extremity (hands, elbow, shoulder) in the Southeast, he should be. Very satisfied. After care, during rehab and follow up.

Great Doc

First went to a different doc for shoulder pain. He prescribed medicine, no help. Tried a shot, no help. Had an MRI, and he wanted to operate. Went to Dr. McClelland for 2nd opinion. He said he thought at age 78, I might do better with a conservative approach. He studied my MRI, gave me an injection (in the right place this time), and advised 10 physical therapy sessions. I am now pain-free and can't thank Dr. McC enough for his competence and kindness.sessions.

Excellent

Dr. McClelland diagnosed my condition as having Dupuytrens syndome. My little finger and the next finger were bent all the way to my palm of my hand. He explained two options to me which include surgery or an injection of Xiaflex. He gave me the pros & cons of each procedure and I chose the injection. In less than a week ,my fingers were flat with my palm and back to normal. I could open my and move all of my fingers and all joints in my fingers. It was remarkable ! Dr. McClelland was super kind and caring ! Also his staff , Cassidy and Eric were fantastic! I highly recommend him to anyone with hand problems .

Great Results

Dr McClelland did en endoscopic procedure on my left hand, and after surgery I had only minor discomfort, no pain meds of any kind needed. Another doctor did an "open" procedure on my right hand and it took several weeks to resolve the pain from the surgical wound. I highly recommend Dr McClelland to anyone considering carpal tunnel release surgery.
