5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Great Experience with Dr. Clayton!

I loved working with Dr. Clayton. He was great when I first went in for a consultation. We spoke about my needs and what the insurance would cover. I even had a follow up consultation after the insurance was approved so we could go over more of the actual procedure. The surgery itself was great. He came in before I went back for surgery to do all of the markings on my body and we spoke...

I had an exceptional experience with Dr Clayton. He took all the time I needed answering questions and making my final decisions. He was prompt to answer texts and calls. He was very accurate on helping me look well proportioned for my size. Can't say enough good about him AND his staff!

Great Experience

Dr. Clayton is very kind and caring. He is always running on time or early when I come to my appointments, which is very convenient. I had a Rhinoplasty about a year ago and he was very nice before and after the procedure and genuinely cares about all his clients

Mommy make over

Choosing Dr Clayton was the best choice, professional, explained thoroughly and wasn't afraid to explain again if I didn't understand, had me come into the office again for a second consult to make sure we were on the same page. He did an amazing job and delivered exactly what I requested.

Dr. Clayton is fantastic! - Riverton, UT

Dr. Clayton is fantastic! I am a mother of 4 and my first pregnancy was with twins.
