Dr. Clearman’s Practice Philosophy
My goal is to provide my patients the highest level of medical expertise, confidentiality, and respect in an unhurried and supportive atmosphere. I believe that patient and physician must collaborate to achieve optimal health for the patient. Together we work to identify causes of pain, illness, and dysfunction and to develop a treatment plan that is workable in the context of the patient’s life.
I am trained in high-tech American medicine and am always interested in new medical developments. As a member of the faculties of Baylor College of Medicine, the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, and Cornell Weill Medical College in the Texas Medical Center, I have both the opportunity and the responsibility for staying on the leading edge of Western medicine. I do not believe, however, that this type of medicine always has the answers to every problem. While I will always utilize everything American medicine has to offer, I continue to study and use the best techniques of acupuncture, manual medicine, and complementary therapies.
A friend described my practice as going “back to the future of medicine” because I practice an old-fashioned “house call” style of medicine. Ideal medical care demands meticulous attention to every detail of the patient’s well-being and continuous communication. I perform personalized care according to the needs and life situation of each patient.
