She is attuned to preventative practices and eager to educate you about opportunities available to you to re-balance your life in order to bring back the health and vitality of your skin and body. She believes strongly that the key to feeling and looking healthy lies in a more in-depth evaluation of a patient's functioning, and may require more than the writing of a prescription to be achieved.

Perhaps you will be more successful in your career or feel happier with yourself if you address the issues you have noticed, such as aging of your skin, scarring, frown lines, excess hair, bulges of fat that won't respond to diet or exercise, brown spots, blood vessels on your face or legs, or poor skin tone. She specializes in providing only treatments that have been proven to be effective, to be safe and without serious side effects, to improve your health, and to be affordable. She knows how to provide treatments that will give natural-looking results. We want our patients to be informed about health alternatives, because informed patients make better decisions about their health and well-being.

I cannot recommend Dr. Clark enough. I have had contact dermatitis and psoriasis for years, but have never in my life had it under control until I started meeting with Dr. Clark. She is incredibly attentive and always on time. Her support staff is just lovely.

I would advise against any black and brown people seeing Dr. Clark. She kept saying that we had to correct my “darkness,” not dark spots. She kept referring to ingredients she thought was in the hair care products I mentioned using,when those ingredients aren’t in the products and seemed to be doing this in an effort to pressure me to buy an oil. She pushed on, saying “people of color love it,” which is incredibly problematic. People of color love it meaning all people of color have the same hair type and must inherently love it? Very wrong. She also kept pushing her personally branded products onto me. I feel like I paid for an incredibly uncomfortable (and somewhat racist) experience. Never again.

Poor experience that felt more like a sales pitch than an actual doctors visit. Would not recommend to anyone who is looking for actual consultation for skin concerns, instead of just being sold skincare products from the dermatologists own private line.

I am a new patient of Dr. Clark's, and I appreciated the thorough exam and specific recommendations she provided on my first appointment today. I liked that Sheryl told me exactly what to do, what RXs to get, when to usethem, what vitamins to take, and she even suggested I pick up a book on diet that might help my psoriasis. The office staff was also very pleasant and helpful, which quite frankly hasn't been the case at other offices.

I enjoyed visiting this office. I’m often skeptical of going to doctors in the upper east side because I fear being mistreated or misdiagnosed because of my race. That was not my experience. The practice was diverse, clean, organized and friendly.With the nurses help, the doctor designed a treatment plan for my issues around hyper-pigmentation and keloid scarring giving me a confidence I haven’t had in a while. They asked me a number of questions to understand my background, which I love, and I felt listened to and respected. I will note however that 2/3 of the products she prescribed (a face cream and a pads with more than 2% hydroquione) were her own products and they were a bit pricy. I’ve just started treatment so I can’t report back on their effectiveness). Overall, I enjoyed my visit and will be going back to this practice for a follow up next month.

I saw Dr. Clark for 3 months with no improvment to my acne condition. During our follow up visits, her strategy was to increased the dosage of my current medication or suggested I purchase her own products. However, neither gave thedesired results. After minimal results, I decided to see a different dermatologist in NYC and saw improvements within two weeks. I don't plan to go back.

I came with a severe itching of the scalp. I had seen another dermatologist who had incorrectly diagnosed the itching as dandruff. I have suffered with this condition at least a year. When I saw Dr Clarke, she tested me andknow the cause and treatment. I have been fine ever since.

Dr Clark is excellent. I feel her expertise and honesty are worth the nyc prices. Her strategy for Botox placement was well thought out and incomparable to other injectors who were not physicians. She makes you feel at ease and doesnot push any particular products or procedures. Her staff are great and efficient!

I first figured let me give her a try based on the great reviews, not always the best way to go. First appt was strange, the Medical assistants were very nice took a lengthy questionnaire about your issues, then stood outsidemy room with the Dr over 5 minutes repeating everything I just told them to the Dr. Dr Clark was pleasant, however always rushed. When I would ask her questions it was always rushed and inadequate responses from her. She also told me to talk to the medical assistant about my skin issues which I already spent 30 minutes completing paper work answering all these questions, I think it was inappropriate and she seems to be beyond that (to big to actually talk to her patients) . Then when she talked to me about treatment options they were very brief and I really do not know anything about these treatments. I had to dig and ask her for more info which I should not have to do.
