"For two years prior to finding Well Being-Being Well, I went to several doctors, all of whom minimized my experience, belittled me, and blamed me for the symptoms I described. Finding Dr Clamp, and now Dr. Shiffman since Dr. Clamp’s retirement changed everything. I was properly diagnosed and treated, always respected and heard. I have recommended WB-BW to others and will continue to do so enthusiastically. I moved away from the DC area seven years ago but continue to go to WB-BW. I will continue doing so as long as I am able. This is the best physician experience I have ever had. I am so grateful. "

She always says that she feels that she doesn't do a lot for me, but she is the only doctor that has been able to work with my hypothyroidism, adrenal issues, hormone imbalances, and Lyme Disease complications. She was, and is, a lifesaver to me. I do tell people about my experiences with her because I am very pleased with the care that I have received. I wouldn't be functioning if it were not for her."
