He was great, the most concerned caring doctor I have ever meet. Appointment wait time run little long but thats becausehe spends the extra few minutes talking with each client.

Dr. Clinkscales cares about you as a human being not just a patient. He cares about other factors in your life not only the wrist issue.

I enjoyed him. He was pleasant and fun loving and made my anxiety about the pain in my hand go away somewhat. He was proactive and took immediate action to ease my current pain.
