About David J. Clymer MD

Dr. Clymer is a self-described “conservative surgeon” who emphasizes non-surgical care whenever possible and stresses thorough patient education and fully informed patient involvement in all treatment decisions.

He is equally comfortable with pediatric and adult patients. He has been selected as one of the top doctors in Kansas City by his peers in three of the past four years

Outside the office, Dr. Clymer is a fitness and exercise enthusiast who particularly enjoys snow skiing and water skiing as well as other outdoor activities. He enjoys spending family time with Melanie, his wife of over 35 years, his grown and married children and his new grandson. He enjoys casual travel especially to Colorado, the Lake or to New York to visit his son and daughter in law. Dr. Clymer and his wife remain quite active in their church and look to their faith as the central pillar in their lives together.
