If I were to try and explain how knowledgeable, and professional Dr. Clair and his entire staff were this comment would be way too long. Dr. Clair did and ankle replacement on an ankle that had 2 previous surgeries over a 30 year time period. Surgery went great. I'm still in Physical Therapy. Getting better everyday. I would highly and enthusitaclly recommend Dr. Clair for any and all your foot and ankle problems.

Dr. Clair repaired my right ankle in 2012 and when I needed the same procedure in the summer of 2018, I made sure to seek him out in his new practice in the Twin Cities. For both surgeries, he was very patient, thorough with explaining what I needed to have done, and the results have been very successful. I would not only recommend him to others, but if I needed any additional foot/ankle surgery, I would make the effort to travel ( four hours one-way) to obtain his services. In addition, his staff, including Aaron, have been exceptional to work with!

Dr. Clair repaired my heel/ankle at the end of Oct 2016. Very happy with results. He removed excess bone and reattached and repaired couple of tenons. Surgery and followup went well. Everything was explained to me in an easy to understand manner, and his staff we're also great to deal with. very pleased with results. Would recommend.

After a dislocated ankle and four fractures, Dr. Clair did an excellent repair job. He and his staff were easy to talk to, good at explaining everything, took his time with me during office visits.

Dr. Clair repaired a bunion for me 4 months ago and I regret not having it done much sooner. I walked out of the surgery center with no pain, and had only minimal pain at the most afterward. I am now running again and couldn't be happier. He explains conditions and treatments clearly and pleasantly. Great to work with.

Dr. Clair is a kind surgeon, but he "rushes" through the surgery! I had one foot done with him and I had terrible problems and pain for at least a year after!! I had to have a revision done on the foot by a different surgeon! I would NOT recommend him! He is too quick to take short-cuts at the cost of his patients well being!

Having 2 surgeries for the same condition did not result in my foot being corrected in the least. Had a lot of down time in my personal and work life. Pain is still occuring. The wait times were not acceptable for follow up office visits having waited from at the least 50 mins up to 1.5 hours for a 6 min appt. Very unsatisfied.
