About Dr. Clemens

Betsy Clemens, MD, is a board-certified family physician focusing exclusively on providing care for certain anorectal disorders out of her office in the Midwest Hemorrhoid Treatment Center in Creve Coeur, Missouri. With more than two decades of experience in patient care, Dr. Clemens knows that patient comfort is paramount when treating hemorrhoids and other conditions often perceived as embarrassing.

Prior to focusing on anorectal disorders, Dr. Clemens spent over 10 years in family practice, giving her a unique understanding of taking a holistic approach to her patients’ health and listening closely to their concerns. Her time working in family care has given her a broad knowledge of how various lifestyle factors and medical conditions can play an important part in anorectal symptoms and health.

Whether someone is suffering from bleeding, discomfort or hemorrhoids, Dr. Clemens and her team offer a thorough evaluation prior to treatment to ensure patients receive the appropriate level of care.
