Tiffin Clegg, MD
I endeavor to monitor and improve peoples’ health, diagnose/identify any medical problems, reduce risks for disease and strive to provide the most effective and current therapies available.
I believe in listening to and working with my patients. First, to understand their concerns and healthcare goals, second, to provide guidance and treatment. I am not a doctor who simply tells you what to do. You will learn my opinion, but ultimately, you are in charge of your healthcare decisions. I believe a genuine doctor-patient relationship is based on mutual respect and I see my role is to offer my patients the benefit of my education and experience. As a result, I strive to formulate a treatment plan that best fits each individual's goals and needs.
After all, the best advice or medicine isn’t worth squat if you don’t want to take it.
Why The Doctors Clinic:
The Doctors Clinic is simply the best place in Kitsap County to provide or receive medical care.
At a time when healthcare options are becoming increasingly corporate and impersonal - where doctors are employed by hospitals or other large companies - this dedicated group of talented local physicians, providers, technicians and support staff offer patients an unmatched experience.
The Doctors Clinic expertly integrates primary care, specialty care, laboratory, and imaging services that are expertly delivered - leading to superior care.

Outside the office, my time and energy is focused on my family. I also immensely enjoy cinema and film, astronomy, digital video production and editing, comedy, intertidal marine biology, advertising, geology and rock polishing, graphic design and typography, early human archaeology and skulls, weather, earthquakes, scaring people on Halloween, exploring remote wilderness areas including deserts. I do not play golf.
