Clovis E. Manley, MD, JD, MBA
Dr. Manley was raised in Evansville and graduated from Harwood Grade School in 1966 and Central High School in 1970. He graduated with distinction from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland in 1974, with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Following a year of training in nuclear propulsion, Dr. Manley served in the engineering department in USS SEAWOLF (SSN 575), a fast-attack, nuclear submarine based near San Francisco. In SEAWOLF Dr. Manley had the privilege of serving under Capt. Charles MacVean and participated in some exciting espionage missions during the Cold War with the Soviet Union. Some of the exploits of SEAWOLF are recounted in the books Blind Man’s Bluff and Red November.
Dr. Manley then served two years as a Tenth Company Officer at the Naval Academy. These years coincided with the junior and senior years for the first class of women at the Naval Academy. Tenth Company had more female midshipmen than any other company and Dr. Manley had the honor of appointing the first female Midshipman company commander in the history of the academy.
During and after his time at the academy Dr. Manley attended the University of Maryland where he earned his Masters in Business Administration. After graduate school, Dr. Manley attended the Submarine Officers Advanced Course in Groton, Connecticut. At the end of the six-month course, Dr. Manley was voted the outstanding graduate of the course by his classmates and received the Lloyd Award.
His next tour of duty was as Navigator, Operations Officer, and Chief Nuclear Test Officer in the fast-attack nuclear submarine USS PLUNGER (SSN 595), based first near Seattle and then in San Diego. In 1983, after two years in PLUNGER, Dr. Manley resigned from active duty to enter medical school.
Dr. Manley graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine in 1987. He then entered the Deaconess Hospital Family Practice Residency Program, graduating in 1990. Dr. Manley obtained board certification in Family Practice in 1990 and recertified in 1996, 2002 and 2008.
Dr. Manley’s first medical position was as a full-time emergency physician at Warrick Hospital in Boonville. After one year there, he joined Deaconess Family Medical Center in Newburgh where he practiced for four years.
In 1995, Dr. Manley closed his medical office to attend Indiana University School of Law in Bloomington. During law school, he worked at the MEC Medical Centers in Evansville and Newburgh. Dr. Manley graduated cum laude from law school in 1997 and passed the Indiana Bar Examination on his first attempt. Dr. Manley is a member of the Indiana bar but he is not actively practicing law at this time.
In 1997, Dr. Manley rejoined the medical staff of Warrick Hospital (now St. Mary’s Warrick Hospital) as an emergency physician. He joined Mission Health Medical Group in Newburgh in November 1998. In 2002, he and his staff left Mission Health and went into private practice.
In July 2002, Dr. Manley and his staff opened Plaza Park Family Practice and Déjà Vu Skin & Vein Center. They moved to their present location in Newburgh, IN in November of that year. In 2006, as part of Déjà Vu, Dr. Manley and his staff established a comprehensive vein treatment center. In 2009, Dr. Manley achieved board certification as a vein specialist from the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Disease.
Plaza Park Family Practice thrived and steadily grew until the practice had four family nurse practitioners working with Dr. Manley and his ever-growing staff. In late 2013, Dr. Manley transferred ownership of PPFP to three outstanding nurse practitioners in order to devote full time to Déjà Vu which by that time had developed into the most comprehensive vein treatment center in the Tri-State area.
Déjà Vu also grew into one of the most advanced skincare facilities in the area providing laser, intense pulsed light and medical treatment for common skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, skin cancer, skin pigmentation problems, aging skin and more. Déjà Vu also provides Botox for wrinkles, migraine and hyperhidrosis. Other services include injection of skin fillers and provision of medical grade skincare products such as Obaji, Jan Marini, Jane Iredale and more.
In 2014, Dr. Manley and his staff divided Déjà Vu into two businesses in order to make it easier for the public and referring physicians to understand the services that the clinics provide. The Evansville Regional Vein Center is the name of the venous treatment clinic and Déjà Vu Skin & Vein Center continues to provide advanced skincare treatment and “cosmetic” injections for “spider veins.” Dr. Manley also continues to treat a small number of patients at PPFP and is the collaborating physician for that practice.
Dr. Manley is married to Leida Manley and has two sons, Justin and Jeorge.
Dr. Manley is a retired Captain in the U.S. Naval Reserve Medical Corps.
