My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My father was a family doctor for more than 50 years and he always said that the best way to start helping a patient was to take the time to really listen to them. I have carried that philosophy with me everyday as a primary care doctor, having spent the last 18 years in Marietta, Georgia seeing patients from Smyrna, Powder Springs, Acworth, Kennesaw and Woodstock.

As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, sometimes referred to as a concierge practice, I'm now able to take your families healthcare to the next level. With a smaller practice I can spend more 'one on one' time getting to know you and your family and will address any illnesses such as diabetes or hypertension, promptly and with sustainability.

I'll work closely with your children to meet their pediatric needs and to educate them on the importance of starting healthy habits at a younger age. I've always believed that preventing an illness or disease was better medicine than treating one after the fact so we'll work towards optimizing your health through a personalized preventive care plan because your quality of life is my priority.

Dr. Clifford is an exceptional physician. He ALWAYS goes above and beyond for his patients. He spends time to find out what is truly causing your issues and doesn't just look at the (computer ranges) and send you home if you are inside the parameters considered normal. Not everyone is identical and he understands what may be normal for one person may not be for another. He is… See more

The relationship I have with Dr. Clifford is more than just a doctor; he is a friend, one that is always available to me no matter time of day or medical issue that I may have. Dr. Clifford was recommended to me by my family who lives in Cobb County while I was moving there from Gwinnett County after the death of my husband. I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate and feel very much… See more

I can say, without any exaggeration, that I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for Dr. Clifford. After I got a thyroidectomy, and had gained 40 pounds from that, I couldn't get any cooperation from my endocrinologist to raise my Synthroid dosage to a higher amount. After a few months of experimenting with my dosage, gaining weight, and having no energy, I went to Dr.… See more

My wife connected me with Dr. Clifford about 20 years ago and he has been our primary care physician ever since. About 15 years ago, I noticed stiffness, pain and swelling in my left leg as I was leaving the office and walking to the car. I ascribed it to another weight lifting minor injury ... happended often. As I was preparing for bed that evening, I passed out while walking through the… See more

from Mary October 17, 2016 for David M. Clifford, MD, DABFP

After seeing the same Doctor for 37 years, I moved across town and visited my daughter's Doctor. I felt at ease there and came to appreciate the care I have received over the years. Dr. Clifford and his staff have never rushed me through an appointment, and he has always listened to me about whatever problems I have.
I was in such pain and unable to walk on January 3, 2016, a Sunday… See more
