Dr Clark actually called me HIMSELF at 430pm on Friday afternoon to check on me before a weekend... not a nurse, or PA


He has a great reputation and he lived up to that. Wonderful bedside manner. Smiles easily.


On the initial visit, Dr. Clark spent a great deal of time explaining my condition and treatment alternatives. His was very reassuring and thoroughly answered all of our questions. After surgery, Dr. Clark called to explain the pathology results rather than waiting until the post-op visit. His going the extra mile was very much appreciated. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Clark to other patients.


No problems


Dr. Clark spent a great deal of time explaining the surgical procedure, possible surgical variations depending on pathological outcomes, and prognosis after surgery. Though the prospect of surgery is in itself stressful, Dr. Clark did an excellent job in addressing my concerns and calming my anxiety. I feel very lucky to have had Dr. Clark as my surgeon.


Excellent care.




Have always had a good experience and would recommend *Dr. Clark to any one.


I would highly recommend *Dr. C. J. Clark.




I am very pleased with the provider!


I really was taken care of and enjoyed my care at all times.


*Dr. Clancy drew diagrams & put the results on the computer to help me understand my problem.


I owe my life the Dr. Clark. I am certain, if he was not my Dr. I would no longer be alive. His bed side manner is great, and we have forged a relationship I thought never could exist between Dr. and patient. I enjoy each visit I have with him. I have thanked God numerous times that Dr. Clark is my surgeon and care provider. Dr. Clark has made my cancer diagnosis, and treatment a positive event in my life. Dr. Clark's care and concern for me and my family is a true testament to his character as a Dr. and caring person. I cannot say enough positive things about this man.






Loved her!/Loved him!


All that I have with doctors, nurse's, all staff was excellent, I did not have any surgery yet, but I know all will go well.
