I came to Dr. Clapham 6 months ago with several health issues including chronic back pain that I had not been able to get handled in the past. I am amazed today when I realize I now consider myself virtually pain-free. I have so much respect for Dr. Clapham's approach, because she uses just the right mix of proven, traditional diagnostic methods, current research data, and a healthy dose of common sense. I think she has a true gift for discerning just what a patient is able to confront about their health, using the approach of dealing with the most important things first. There was something about her way of guiding me through the priorities of nutrition, diagnostic tests, supplements and lifestyle elements that was truly the exact thing I needed.
I find Dr. Clapham to be the consummate professional armed with a wealth of knowledge, detailed in her analysis and most importantly, compassionate, responsive to my needs and able to combine her scientific knowledge with a practice that includes all aspects of the patient both physical and spiritual. This is a rare talent amongst medical professionals. More than anyone I have come in contact with in this field, Dr. Clapham exemplifies what medicine and the healing arts should be both now and in the future.

Dr. Clapham has that rare and magical combination of absolute nurturing yet complete professionalism. The clinic has a homey yet competent feel and the wide variety of options available under one roof is such a special aspect. I just know when I am seeing Dr. Clapham for something that she has done all the research possible, and I feel so taken care of and nurtured. This combination fosters a trust I don't find with many practitioners.

I met Dr. Lizzie in the spring of 2007 as a yoga teacher - a great way to get acquainted with her gentle approach to life. I availed myself of her health care expertise shortly thereafter. I found her to be as gentle and knowledgeable in her approach to health care. Her suggestions focus on food choices, vitamins and minerals which I have found to be the solution to my chronic arthritic pain and overall health. I particularly like that I walk away with written instructions after each visit.
In this age of prefunctory and impersonal medical care, Dr. Lizzie Clapham is a true miracle. When you experience her amazing span of medical knowledge, her personal approach to each patient, her passion for understanding , you know you are in expert hands. She cured my chronic condition. She's a wonder!
