Dr. Clyde’s philosophy is to always start simple. He is an excellent listener and in general, can elicit a diagnosis based on what the patient’s story reveals prior to an examination. Foot pain and symptoms always have a cause and he is committed to taking a stepwise approach to get positive outcomes.
