Clarence spoke at me for the duration of the appointment starting with therapy he would not consider and why. Physical exam without explanation of what/why he was assessing, nicely reviewed knee imaging which was helpful. Therapy plans appeared as cut and paste into my AVS (PT, balm/heat) versus individualized plan. Spoke down of other care givers (IM/PT) prior recommendations and emphasized his extensive experience. Provided prescription for medication that could be purchased OTC (was more economical). I was a number with a knee issue, next.

I had the last appointment of the day. He was very rushed and wanted to get out of there. He said out loud I can't keep working these long hours. He had a coat on to leave before I had even left. He couldn't find a brace that he wanted to give me. He told me to call the next day and ask about the brace which I did. They said there was nothing in my record, ordering a brace. I have called requesting that brace, and I have heard nothing since then. He talked fast and had a very strong accent, which was hard for me to understand. I would've liked to talk to him more about some different options for care. I am in a lot of pain and wanted to talk through some different things, but felt very rushed.

Clarence Semple took the time to not only listen, but to educate me regarding the anatomy of the hand. He gave me a full explanation of the reasons for the pain I was experiencing, complete with pictures compared to my X-ray. There is now a plan in place for improvement and a clear time frame in my mind to help establish my expectations. I would definitely go to him again for care.
