Dr.Clark was interested in my health and well being and was very specific about how he and his fellow physicians would be taking care of me.

July 20, 2020 3:26 PM

important visit - Dr. Clark laid out exactly what was going on and what may happen, subject to tests that he then scheduled for me. Great experience.

July 16, 2020 9:29 AM

Have been seeing Dr. Clark for over 20 year. I have total confidence in him and his associates.

July 13, 2020 4:42 PM

Dr Clark is engaging, attentive to my needs and questions. His relaxed nature is calming as we discussed my heart issues.

July 13, 2020 4:42 PM

it was a great experience to work with him.

July 11, 2020 6:43 AM

May 23, 2020 10:48 AM

Dr Clark is easy to talk to and responds in a manner that is easy to understand and follow.

May 23, 2020 10:48 AM

Dr Clark always makes it a point during a visit to talk about something personal. It's not always about medicine. That makes me fell that he cares about me as person and not just a patient. He is a great guy to have on my medical team.

April 29, 2020 8:47 AM

Good experience.

April 11, 2020 3:36 PM

I met with Dr. Clark as a pre-surgery request of Dr. X per my condition which may require open heart surgery. Fr. X was seeking a second professional opinion as to my condition and what intervention procedures should be investigated. I very much appreciated the professional approach to this problem-solving decision.

April 9, 2020 10:38 AM

Appreciate interest and dedication to all!

good experience working together as one team

April 4, 2020 7:22 AM

Because of the virus going around, I did not have to go to his office for my annual visit. The doctor called me at home and talked about my blood test and my condition. The doctor explained every thing I wanted to know. His said my health is great, and to see him in six months.

April 4, 2020 7:22 AM

Because of the virus going around, this experience by phone was fast and easy. I thank him for his job for being concern about his patience. I have been seeing Dr. Clark for more than 25 years. Thank You Again

March 18, 2020 7:49 PM

I always have a good experience with this Provider

March 14, 2020 3:33 PM

Dr. Clark and his staff went over my test results and explained them to me. Answered any questions I asked about them that I had.

March 14, 2020 3:33 PM

Very good experience.

March 14, 2020 10:02 AM

I had a good dr visit

March 2, 2020 5:07 PM


February 25, 2020 1:05 PM

Terrible experience with office staff who checked me in, the nurse or medical assistant who talked to me in the exam room and the discharge receptionist. All extremely rude, unprofessional and do not take their job seriously enough to care about any of the patients. Its a misjustice to Dr. Clark. Would consider changing facilities as this is not the only isolated experience I have had. each and every time I have gone to his Office at Edwards Hosp the staff are rude, challenging, uncaring and unprofessional.

February 25, 2020 10:43 AM

There was no explanation from staff what the delay was in my visit. Waited 1/2 hour to be called back and then another 1/2 hour or so for the doctor. When doctor came in explained that he was with another patient and that was the delay. He did apologize a couple of time during the visit another the tardiness of the visit.

February 13, 2020 11:00 PM

Overall good experience.

February 10, 2020 1:35 PM

Quality of visit was very good, wait time was too long.

February 9, 2020 9:00 AM

Dr Clark is a person that I am trusting to keep my heart beating.

February 9, 2020 8:08 AM

Great doc.

February 3, 2020 5:46 PM

My wife passed away recently and Dr. Clark was very sympathetic and consoling as I was grieving.

February 3, 2020 3:37 PM

Dr. Clark is the best! Always a great experience.

February 3, 2020 3:37 PM

Dr. Clark is an excellent doctor. The questions in this survey are largely not applicable. I only see Dr.Clark every 6 months and since I'm doing well, I won't see him for a year. All of the 3 month related questions are not applicable.

January 27, 2020 11:57 AM

Dr. Clark is a good communicator regarding heart issues including life style. He did an excellent job in removing my heart health with a cardiogram.

January 27, 2020 11:57 AM

Very good experience. He is very knowledgeable in the heart care area.

January 3, 2020 12:12 PM

Wait time in office a little long - however, provider did not rush through the visit & spent as much time as needed with his patient.

December 27, 2019 8:06 AM

I've been seeing Dr. Clark annually for over 20 years.

December 27, 2019 8:06 AM

He has always provided excellent advice & council.

December 21, 2019 5:49 PM

was very good experience.... Dr. Clark listen very carefully to all of my concerns.

December 21, 2019 5:49 PM

good experience

December 17, 2019 1:31 PM

very confident in Dr. Clark and his plan for my health moving forward.

December 2, 2019 12:28 PM


November 25, 2019 4:49 PM

My experiences with Dr. Clark are commendable. Often, however, my experiences with the nursing staff are disappointing. On my last visit, the nurse was brusque and seemed bothered with me. She spoke rapidly and I had difficulty keeping up with her. When I was checking out, there was a new procedure, and the attendant seemed irritated that I was a bit confused with the change in paperwork. So, to elaborate on your question of "would I recommend the provider's office," I did not answer "yes" because the nurse and one other person (in the office) could have been more polite.

November 23, 2019 11:36 AM

My experience is always very good

November 22, 2019 9:05 AM

Dr. Clark always answers all of my questions and spends enough time making sure I understand his answers.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. & I share same demographic, family, education and other "general" experiences. He's always kind, knowledgeable & good specialist. I'm in good hands!

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

Practice migrated to "MY CHART" since last visit in 2018. My info was all intact and accessible. Good job!

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

I had to wait an unusually long time and feel the receptionist could have explained why sooner. Also, the usual receptionists were not there, and the desk was messy.

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

I am completely satisfied with my cardiologist and his nurse, and I have been a patient for over 13 years.

November 9, 2019 12:26 PM

wonderful caring personable professional

November 9, 2019 12:26 PM

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

This was the first time I saw this doctor in an office setting. He filled in for my doctor who was off because he was ill himself. Dr. Clark made me feel so at ease. His assurance that the new combination of medications I was taking was working and BP numbers were great. He explained and mapped out the next appointments for continued care.

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

the doctor gets off track during conversations. he likes to talk, but not about my condition. When he is engaged the diagnosis and further action is vague. My test results left me with cause for concern. Furthetesting is planned, but I am confused on further action or hypothetical treatment. I'm considering changing doctors.

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

I feel very fortunate to have Dr Clark as my doctor

April 26, 2019 7:00 PM


April 23, 2019 7:00 PM
