Tiffin Clegg, MD
Like my colleagues, I endeavor to monitor and improve peoples’ health, diagnose/identify medical problems, reduce risks for disease, and provide the most effective current therapies available.
I believe in listening to and working with people; first to understand their concerns and healthcare goals, and then to provide guidance and treatment. I am not a doctor who simply tells you what to do. You will know what I think, but you are in charge of your healthcare decisions. I think a genuine doctor-patient relationship based on mutual respect ultimately proves more helpful than just listening to someone direct you to do things. I see my role as offering patients under my care the benefit of my education and experience and I strive to formulate a treatment plan that fits each individual.
After all, the best advice or medicine isn’t worth squat if you don’t want to take it.
Why The Doctors Clinic:
Because it’s 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. At The Doctors Clinic integrated primary care, specialty care, laboratory, and imaging services- expertly delivered- lead to superior care.

Since 2002 I have been privileged to live in and serve the communities of Kitsap County and adjacent areas through the practice of medicine.

Outside the office most of my time and energy is focused on my family, and I enjoy all of the following immensely:
Cinema/film, astronomy, digital video production & editing,
comedy/humor, intertidal marine biology, advertising, geology & rock polishing, graphic design & fonts, early human archeology and skulls, weather, earthquakes, scaring people on Halloween, exploring remote wilderness areas including deserts…
And I do not play golf.
