Everyone was very friendly, and good attention, thank you!

OU Physicians Patient Sep 24, 2019

Dr. Stockton was pleasant and explained everything very well. He showed me my son's x-rays in order to help me understand what he was explaining. Most other doctors don't show the x-rays. Therefore you have to just take them at their word. So, with just that simple gesture of showing me that set him apart from other doctors (in a good way), in my opinion.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 28, 2019

I absolutely love working with Clay Stockton. He always answers our questions and puts us at ease with the treatment. Yesterday, was a different appointment than normal. The nurse seemed surprised that we hadn't removed the casts before coming in and bluntly asked "don't you know how to take them off?". We do, and would have, had we known that we were supposed to prior to coming in. We ended up removing them ourselves while waiting for Clay. Once he arrived the appointment seemed rushed more than normal and he was quickly called out to a different room. I'm not sure if there was a scheduling conflict or we were seen too soon before our actual appointment or what happened. Note - clay did answer the questions we had for him; the appointment was just cut a little shorter than we would have preferred, given the importance of the events that were happening that day.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 22, 2019

Paid attention to my concerns and clarified my observations.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 19, 2019

This was baby's first visit and the doctor understood and care for what we need to know. He was a great doctor.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 13, 2019

Fantastic with kids and tired moms!

OU Physicians Patient Aug 2, 2019

It was our first time seeing him so that is why he didn't know the patient's history.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 22, 2019

We did not have an appointment but given my daughter's diagnosis, Dr. Stockton found time to meet with us. He made her feel comfortable as well as showing care for my son. He was thorough in his directions for treatment and the plan of care.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 22, 2019

Clay was relatable, easy going, happy and that put my daughter at ease. I had questions after the appointment and he promptly called me personally instead of hearing from a nurse who might not know the answer.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 18, 2019

He did an amazing job, we had a concern and we addressed it with him, he did thorough check, told us what was happening and gave us 4 options on how we could solve it. We talked about each option and decided on what was the best solution

OU Physicians Patient Jul 12, 2019

Clinic staff and provider were extremely courteous and willing to answer all of our questions.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 8, 2019

He has awesome patient rapport!!!

OU Physicians Patient Jun 13, 2019

He has an awesome bedside manner and great listener/communicator. He seemed concerned and was super nice and efficient!

OU Physicians Patient Jun 10, 2019

I felt rushed. I thought they'd take more time to examine her or suggest further treatment but they did one xray said everything was fine and sent us home. We drove 3 hours to see them because she has CP and we were reffered to them. They sent us to a PA and rushed us though it and then told us we needed other test but seemed annoyed when we said we needed refferals for further testing due to insurance.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 6, 2019


OU Physicians Patient May 24, 2019

My husband and I could not have been happier! Our daughters apt was at 10:30...we showed up at 9:30 and we walked out of the hospital casted and taken care of by 10:35! Great job, everyone, at OU orthopedics. ??

OU Physicians Patient May 23, 2019

Very friendly and willing to explain things

OU Physicians Patient May 20, 2019

Best experience I've ever had a a clinic/hospital. Great friendly staff, they cared about my daughter and her needs. The doctor and nurses were very careful and made sure she was comfortable. Awesome doctors as well. I'll be happy to return for her follow up.

OU Physicians Patient May 16, 2019

Everything was positive except for the girl at the desk (3A, I believe). She was rude, short, and condescending. As an OU Children's employee, I'm very disappointed.

OU Physicians Patient May 9, 2019

He was nice and very helpful.

OU Physicians Patient May 8, 2019

Has awesome dr patient rapport 5 stars

OU Physicians Patient May 7, 2019

OU Physicians Patient Apr 15, 2019

I have 6 boys. Lots of accidents and ER visits. A couple with broken bones before. This is the first time we've used children's orthopedic and it was, by far, the best experience. Clay was beyond superb. Caring, unrushed, thorough, and very skilled. The cast tech was amazing as well. They had the cast on my kid (which was a little painful) very quickly and did the best job I've ever seen!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 15, 2019

We received a lot of fascinating information during our visit. The Doctor and the staff was all friendly and helpful.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 10, 2019

OU Physicians Patient Apr 1, 2019

Great visit! He answered all our questions. My daughter likes to talk and he was very sweet listening to everything she had to say even when it wasn't about the appointment. Couldn't been more satisfied with appointment.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 5, 2019

We felt like we were heard, he didn't make us feel bad for our concerns, he didn't rush us, explained everything so we understood. After a horrible experience somewhere else he were very happy.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 1, 2019

The referral channels are terrible and I had to call and get a direct fax because they never received my referral.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 27, 2019

I found the service excellent, all very attentive and friendly.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 22, 2019

Nothing, it's very good. Thank you.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 22, 2018

The only thing I didn't like about this office was that they didn't show me the X-ray after they took it

OU Physicians Patient Aug 17, 2018

Clay was very amazing and wonderful with my little boy.

OU Physicians Patient May 9, 2018

Clay is always very patient and well informed on any question we have regarding our sons condition. Clay makes sure to take the time to let us know our medical options and his recommendations.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 8, 2018

he's great!

OU Physicians Patient Feb 21, 2018

Dr Stockton was AMAZING! The second he walked into the room, I felt comfortable. He explained everything thoroughly and was SO GREAT with my daughter!

OU Physicians Patient Jan 30, 2018

Dr. Stockton was awesome! He explained his intentions step by step with an explanation of why as well. He sat both my child and I at an angle to where we could view the xrays with him and took time so that even my 8 year old understood her injury. Often times, children aren't comfortable communicating with physicians but he opened the door by being personable and inquiring about her personally like music, different activities like cheer and gymnastics, and of course the musically app on her tablet. He was just a joy!

OU Physicians Patient Jan 19, 2018

he was great giving us tips of what to do signs to watch for AND went over xray I'm detail. would definitely use him again

The provider was excellent! Took his time and made sure my son was fully taken care of before he left the room

OU Physicians Patient May 31, 2017

very pleased with this clinic

OU Physicians Patient May 16, 2017

Dr. Stockton used a visual aid to show us while he explained our areas of concern. He was a very detailed and clear communicator in the way he was able to educate us in detail on such a complex topic.

OU Physicians Patient May 3, 2017

we love PA Clay Stockton!! he is so awesome with our little girl!!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 21, 2017

I am thoroughly impressed

OU Physicians Patient Apr 4, 2017

Clay has the best bed side manner. He is so wonderfully attentive and genuinely cares about our son and our family. He asked our opinion regarding our sons health plan. We feel so grateful to have found him and this hospital for our sons treatment. I recommend Clay, his staff and both clinic locations to everyone. I've had such professional encounters during our time of treatment.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 20, 2017

Clay Stockton is an amazing provider. He is always very helpful and helps in any way he can. Clay is always answering any questions my self or my son has every time we come in for a visit. Thank you for every thing you do for my son.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 27, 2017

Dr Stockton was very helpful and considerate in the treatment of ____. He was open to ideas as well as giving great feedback.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 20, 2017

wonderful provider, explained things well & answered questions

OU Physicians Patient Jan 30, 2017

My daughter loved that she got to pick out toys after her X-rays. She thought that was worth getting a cast!

OU Physicians Patient Jan 26, 2017

As I've said before, Clay Stockton is the best PA ever! I can't say anything to show how much he's earned mine and my child's respect. He knows how to comfort parents when the news he has to deliver is bad, and that's because he pays attention to what they're not only saying, but how they're behaving. Don't lose him, because you can't replace him. There's no one better.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 25, 2017

My only complain was the wait time for this visit. Our previous visit was on schedule and moved smoothly. The provider is great at explaining my child's condition and future treatment.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 12, 2017

provider was great, but not likely to recommend since not likely to talk to anyone who needs this kind of specialty care

OU Physicians Patient Dec 21, 2016


OU Physicians Patient Dec 13, 2016

the hospital was so beautifully decorated for children, the staff so nice with suckers ready to great us, we did wait more than 15 min but the coloring staff and games helped keep us busy. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 4, 2016

P.A. Stockton was very caring and spent plenty of time listening to our concerns. He used humor to put my son at ease.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 27, 2016

i would still clay and daniel in my pocket and take them home... they were both awesome !

OU Physicians Patient Oct 13, 2016

Great fill in Provider & first visit with this provider. He gave great service!

OU Physicians Patient Sep 28, 2016

As a parent with a masters degree; and having grown up with parents who were physicians and nurses; I wish the team would provide more medically informed explanations. I don't like umbrella answers that imply I may not understand the educated medical information they have as professionals. I prefer correct medical terminology, (ie; the type of bone break, seriousness of the type of break in comparison to other types of breaks.)

OU Physicians Patient Sep 15, 2016

Clay is wonderful with my kiddo and when we first started coming there when she was 2 months old and now goinon 10 years he was and still is good with kids. I only see him or dr.herndon.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 12, 2016

I asked if my daughter could get a new sling from the one she got in ER for her broken arm, I don't know why but the nurse denied a new one...

OU Physicians Patient Aug 18, 2016

very personable. great experience

OU Physicians Patient Aug 8, 2016

The provider was such a big help and he really showed he cared about my daughters disability. I'm thankful I got to see him and he took care of the problem.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 28, 2016

Office staff needs to work together and communicate. I was told 15-20 minutes and they called me back in less than 5. We would have gladly waited and changed our daughter's diaper after we were called back had we known it would cause us a 20 minute delay.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 7, 2016

We saw Clay Stockton 3 months ago and he was concerned about her feet turning in so bad that he mentioned taking a different route, at this visit he didn't show any concern for her turned in toes(which still looked the same as last time), but said he back tendon on the heel was tightening, which isn't good, and then to keep stretching (which we do constantly), and then told us to come back in six months, well in the next six month period, what happens if my daughters tendon gets worse, how am I to know, he did not tell me or my husband what we need to keep any eye out for.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 10, 2016

Clay is amazing and wouldn't take my child anywhere else.

OU Physicians Patient May 16, 2016

this is the second time in the last few months that i have taken a child to see Clay Stockton. He and all the staff do a great job!

OU Physicians Patient May 13, 2016

OU Physicians Patient Apr 20, 2016

He is always very kind and friendly, even playing with our other children and giving them rewards when we leave. He answers all our questions and never makes us feel rushed.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 8, 2016

He did a great job of explaining the healing process and the cast removal process. He asked if I would rather get the cast taken off closer to my home and helped get the appointment set up there.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 29, 2016

This was the worst pediatric office visit ever in my life!

OU Physicians Patient Sep 15, 2015

We loved our provider he was so helpful in making sure _____understood what he was talking about and made me feel so much better about his condition.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 29, 2015

Clay Stockton PA also treated _____ three years ago for another broken arm and we were thrilled to have him as her provider again this time. He knew her history of the arm affected and kept the previous break history in mind this time, too, since it was the same arm.

OU Physicians Patient May 27, 2015

He was very easy to understand and communicated with us very well!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 29, 2015

Dr . Stockton took the time to explain to me ____'s condition. He even let me feel her bone on her knee! Which I thought was really cool because most doctors don't take the time to show you. He was gentle with ____ since she is 1 year old. He seemed very knowledgeable and confident with his practice. He seemed to care!

OU Physicians Patient Mar 26, 2015

I wish we would have gone straight to OU children's. I was IMPRESSED that he let us see the X-rays and took time to explain things to us and my daughter. I loved the fact he stayed with us while the cast was put on I think that put my daughter at ease with the process and made her feel important

OU Physicians Patient Mar 11, 2015

Clay was wonderful. Always age appropriate with ______ and helpful answering our questions.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 4, 2015
