About Elisabeth A. Clayton, MD

  • Dr. Clayton has relocated her practice on Wednesdays from ARC Bee Cave to ARC Far West Medical Tower. Her last day at ARC Bee Cave was Wednesday, February 14, 2024. Read letter.

    Please see below for Allergy and Asthma physicians she recommends to patients wanting to transfer or establish care at ARC.

    Dr. Clayton grew up in Denver, CO. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, watching movies, and enjoying new restaurants. Though relatively new to Central Texas, one of Dr. Clayton’s favorite local spots is the Alamo Drafthouse.

     

    ARC continues to ask for social distancing in our lobby areas, where patients must wait for 30 minutes after their allergy shot, as a safety precaution for patient care. We appreciate your understanding.

I chose a career in allergy-immunology because this field gives me the opportunity to help people feel better every day. My goal is to make sure every patient is heard and understood, and to incorporate my patient’s perspective into my treatment plan.

    Dr. Clayton treats you like a person. She seems to like what she does and cares for patients. She provides information and gives you time to ask questions. Very grateful to be in her care.

    My telehealth visit on June 7, 2024 was particularly good ARC appt. The nurse who called (prior to the actual appt) was kind and clear. She listened well and asked clarifying Qs to properly edit my outdated list of Rx's; very helpful. Also Dr Elisabeth Clayton was, as usual, excellent in her clinical care. She has a calm disposition and also shares compassion. I appreciated her rigor in assessing my allergic reaction, documenting allergy shote details in the file, discerning the needed adjustments to my treatment plan, and communicating it clearly to me. A sincere thanks to them both!

    Dr Clayton thinks carefully about every choice we make about my care. She listens and asks for my input.
