Don't waste your time with this doctor. He doesn't show any urgency or passion for what his profession is. Not someone I'd recommend. Very monotone and boring to speak with. Had not interest in my issues or with my history withmy problem. Left the appointment unhappy and unsatisfied. I thought I was going to speak with a doctor not just a body in a chair who just nods and has rude responses. Awful experience.

The practice e-mailed me the day before the appt. and said it was at 1 not 1:45. I called and they said 1. When I arrived I found out it was 1:45 and had to wait

Dr. Clark takes time to get thorough history and speak with patients, rather than rushing through the appointment. He’s got a very calm manner about him, which is comforting (especially when talking about scary procedures!). His staff are also friendly, from nurses to office staff.

My visit with Dr. Clark went well. I would recommend more communication and education to the patients. Felt like I was a fast food drive-thru patient that wasn't taken seriously.
