Dr. Clement enjoys spending time with his family, running, hiking, camping, and writing.
Medicine has always been a part of Dr. Clement's life.
Dr. Clement split his growing up years in Arizona between Sierra Vista (in southeast Arizona) and Mesa. In rural Sierra Vista, he watched his father practice country medicine where medical care was often exchanged for goat's milk or tamales--a stark contrast to the urban, corporate healthcare he later experienced in the Phoenix area.
Growing up, the lesson he most learned from watching his dad was this: personal care and attention to individual needs matters most.
In today's ever-increasing corporate-minded world of healthcare, attention to the individual is needed more than ever. We're proud to take a stand for that ideal.
