On her philosophy of patient care, Dr. Clay says, “I have a sister; a mother. I have girlfriends. My patient philosophy is when I walk into a patient room or operating room, I try to treat every patient as a family member. Every patient deserves respect and great health care, and when I encounter a patient, I try to give it to them as I would my sister, or my mother, or one of my very close friends.” In her free time, Dr. Clay enjoys traveling, reading, and spending time with her family.

“Dr. Litrel was a fantastic doctor. I had my first exam with him, although at first I was skeptical about a male doctor for my GYN. But after I met him I’m glad I kept an open mind, and I couldn’t have dreamed up a better doctor. He cares about you as a person and not just a patient. The front desk ladies and nurses were very friendly and it’s a great office, very clean and not intimidating. I highly recommend Cherokee Women’s Health.”
