Most uncaring doctor in the industry. Was made to wait 2 hours to see doctor when I had food poisoning and puking my guts out in the office. To top it all off no other patients were in the office at the time. Also was dropped as a patient when I tried to get the Tdap shot at walgreens and he denied the request from the pharmacist because he wanted to see me and make me pay my 35 dollar co-pay when the Pharmacist would have been free. After calling insurance I was told that even at his office I did not have to pay anything and he was lying to me. When I called back to tell them that insurance said I did not have to pay anything period to get it, he said he was dropping me as a patient because I had mentioned finding a new PCP in the first conversation when it became clear he only wanted my money. This is a man that only cares about money not his patients, stay far away from practice.

I found Dr. Clifford on this site and have been going to him for the past two years. I have always has quite severe sinus infections; however, under his care I developed a chronic sinus infection lasting 8 months. Flare ups were treated by antibiotics but the infection did not go away completely. In addition there are no same day appointments available, be prepared to wait on average 2-3 days for an appointment. If you are truly in need to see a doctor 2 days is too long. Also, I was prescribed a medicine that my body is immune to, it took a week for the results to come to his attention that the medicine was ineffective and an additional 3 days for him to call-in an alternative medicine. While he is kind and easy to talk to, the medicine he practices keeps me under the weather much too long for this busy life.

My wife isn't feeling well. I have tried and called 2 days in a row and they can't make any time to fit my wife into there schedule. They explained that there is a doctor out sick and shorthanded but my wife is sick too, she needs help too. I went through the trouble of changing our pcp through bcbs to these guys based on their reviews. I never had trouble scheduling an appointment at my previous place. They would always squeeze us in. People don't plan on getting sick, it does happen you know. It's not something you can plan days in advance. Who knows maybe tomorrow she will be fine by the time they can see her. Guess I will try and call bcbs and have it changed again and find a doctor that can see my wife today.

I was sent to Dr. Clifford by a friend who has been seeing him for years (her parents also see him). I have never been to a more kind, attentive, and lighthearted doctor. He always listens and truly contemplates everything I have to say. The staff is very helpful and they are almost always able to squeeze me in same-day if I'm sick. I'll be staying with Dr. Clifford for as long as I can.

I agree will the other reviews. I had to find a new primary care physician after mine left for concierge medicine. After disappointment with one, I (gratefully) found Dr. Clifford through this website. He spent over an hour with me on my first visit discussing his practice, credentials, etc. and then took his time discussing my health issues. Personally called me later that day with test results. He treats you as a person not a statistic. "Your health is his top priority." In my opinion, he does not seem to bend to the quotas of the insurance companies. His office is quaint and his staff is very friendly.

I have been a patient of Dr. Clifford since 2000. He is an excellent doctor and takes the time to listen and explain. If you have any bloodwork or tests done, he personally calls you to go over the results and doesn't delegate this to his assistants.

I'm new to GA and visited quite a few doctors before finding Dr Clifford. Stopped looking after I found him. He is the best, still remembers me when I come in for my check ups. I highly recommend Dr Clifford.

I love Dr. Clifford. I've been going to him for about 5 years now and he's a wonderful doctor. He always remembers who I am (and my family). Staff is also wonderful, polite and personal. Great family/general practice.

I have been with Dr. David Clifford since he worked at another practice (with multiple doctors) on Powder Springs Road (well over ten years now) and I followed him to his family practice when that branch closed. I've never felt like "another file" at his practice, even when dealing with another physician when Dr. Clifford was not available. He is thorough, genuine, has an excellent bedside manner and everyone in the office is helpful and so polite.
