Dr. Clavell is a very caring and knowledgable doctor. And I wish she could be my doctor forever! But, I was told I need to get an adult GI within the next year.
Dr. Clavell is a wonderful physician and would (and already have) recommended her.
Dr. Clavell is by far one of the best doctors that I have ever dealt with through Childrens Hospital.
The doctor spoke direcetly to my daughter in words that she would understand. I have faith that she will do all she can to help my daughter's ailments.
The doctor was very thorough and thoughtful. She made sure she understood my son's history and provided excellent explanations. She listened very carefully. She took her time!!! I did not mind the very little wait (20 min) we had because I know this is because she is taking her time with another patient.
