great

6/2/2018

I respect Dr Clinger a great deal-I have seen three other doctors- (in different cities) about my medical condition-Dr. Clinger has been the only doctor that provided follow-up appts. to keep my condition from requiring another surgery (if possible)-he works with me and discusses our plan of care in ways to help with decreasing my symptoms-basically he is a great doctor with compassion for his patients-I have other medical issues and I wish all doctors would take a "page from his book"-usually spend 5 minutes with you and prescribe meds-no real effort to work on the issues that affect my condition-so kudos to Dr Clinger-I am from out of town and if I lived closer-I might would try other physcians in your area-thanks

Dr Clinger is the best my condition has cleared up

4/7/2018

I recommended Dr. Clinger to a friend who has had long-standing sinus problems. He got an appointment with Dr. Clinger, who performed surgery to correct a deviated septum shortly thereafter. My friend was as pleased with Dr. Clinger's work as I am.

great doctor

This was my initial visit with Dr. Clinger for ongoing sinus issues. I found him to be an excellent listener...asked good questions and he was very clear on a game plan.

2/28/2018

Dr. Clinger is an excellent specialist doctor, very informative and took all the time I needed to answer the questions I had. Also took time to show the images of the scope that were taken. He and Dr. Matthews (retired now) are the best I have had for my condition. I would without any doubt recommend Dr. Clinger.

Dr Clinger is an excellent Doctor. Listens and responds - we together decide how to proceed after he tells me what he finds and thinks the treatment should be.

Dr. Clinger is one of the best physicians I've ever had. His friendly, courteous manner makes it easy to share your concerns, while his expertise in all things ENT clearly makes it easy to place your trust in him. He's extremely thorough in explaining what's happening and makes you feel you're in good hands when he says, "we're here to take care of you." I'm his #1 fan!! He's taken excellent care of me and I'll always sing his praises!!

8/16/2017

Excellent -I have had three other doctors who were treating me for the same issues-this is the first time I had a doctor who has continued with follow-up-discussed options with me-who actually listened to what I had to say-(none of the other doctors were from this area) I have been so pleased to find a doctor that has really tried to not just treat the symptoms but tried to find causes for the problem-work with me-I really like being able to e-mail when there is an issue and getting a very quick response-I would recommend Dr. Clinger (and have ) to any one needing his specialty
