"I feel Dr. Clayman saved my life. Over 35 years ago, Dr. Clayman performed oral surgery that originally had a cancerous tumor on the floor of my mouth. I have always remembered the care, love, and concern given to me by all the staff and doctors. To this very day, I know I was truly blessed to have had such an extraordinary doctor. Thank you again Dr. Lewis Clayman and for all the work you do in helping so many others. God bless you."
