Ratings for Dr. David Clendenning
I was so sad when I heard of dr. clendennings passing. he will be sorely missed. believe me if he wasnt such a great doctor and not loved by his patients no one would wait two hours. we will miss him. thanks for saving my toe dr. dave! rip
My Mother was Dr Clendenning's patient. HE SAVED HER LIFE! She had contacted MRSA and after 3 months of her "then PCP" and HMO tossing her around ~ they finally permitted her to see a "Wound Care Surgeon Podiatry Specialist". THANK GOD FOR DR DAVID and his staff! They were all great, and he was amazing! He debrided her wound and week later - relieved her of all MRSA (without amputation)~ we loved the guy! He was well worth the wait in his office lobby! He was "popular and in demand" because he was THE VERY BEST! People who complain about the wait - didn't deserve his services and talent. How fortunate we feel to have had him attend to my Mother ... who was 84 at the time of meeting him ... and this JANUARY will turn 89! She's still with us because people "cared enough" (and the keyword here is "enough"). I am feeling a tremendous loss of a fantastic DR/SURGEON - as well as a good man. When God made people like David ... He threw the mold away! Rare and wonderful individual! RIP
I'm not one to speak negatively about others, let alone share such negative thoughts with strangers, but I feel real strongly about this practitioner. I've been to different podiatrists as I lived in 3 different states over the years, and IN MY OPINION this one is the absolute worst! I felt as though he and his practice treat people without respect or courtesy. I am not expecting any medical doctor to be my friend, but I do expect a medical doctor to be understanding, compassionate, attentive and not treat me in a condescending manner as this man did.
I was referred to Dr. Clendenning by my physical therepist. I visited Dr. Clendenning who diagnose me with a neuroma and metatarsalgia. I had surgery to correct the metatarsel and my bunion. During the operation Dr. Clendenning shaved my bunion which was perfectly normal. Corrected the metatarsel and injected the neuroma. He tried to straighten out my 2nd toe using a pin. During the surgery he had to remove the pin on my toes because it was turning white. I was advised by my other doctors that this happenddd b/c he did not insert the pin correctly. He could of used a different size pin but instead decided not to. On the surgery report he did not even add the part about the pin. When he cut the metatarsel he did not cut it short enough. Three years later, today I am having surgery to shorten the metatarsel bone and straighten out the 2nd toe. I am very dissapointed with Dr. Clendenning work and would mot recommend him to anyone else.
