Melissa Clifford


Due to an autoimmune condition, the mobility of my fingers and hands have become quite constrictive. I have been a patient of Melissa Clifford’s from the beginning of my diagnosis and she has managed my condition exceptionally well. Melissa’s professionalism, ability to listen to my feedback and provide suitable hand therapy has been outstanding.
