Dr. Clark did a great job with my hip replacement, which was very challenging due to my advanced hip Perthes disease. He is a man of few words, but he patiently and completely answered all of the questions I had of him, both before and after the surgery. I've seen some ratings indicate he is arrogant, but I did not find that at all. I'm likely destined for a new knee in a couple of years and he'll be my guy for that too. He is the best in my opinion.

I was referred to Dr Clark by a colleague when xrays indicated the cartilage in my knee had deteriorated so I was bone on bone when looking at xray taken that day to one 3 years previous. An appointment to meet with a surgeon to discuss knee replacement brought me to Dr Clark. He told me that knee replacement wasn't successful in patients, "with my problem." It only helped about 10% of people with my problem. He suggested a cortisone shot, couple PT sessions to learn exercises I could do on my own to strengthen my knee and loose weight. Then if the pain doesn't go away to return in three months for an MRI to see if I had a torn meniscus. That was an injury I was treated for 3 years ago. I wasn't aware exercise and weight loss regenerated cartilage and flexibility. Dr Clark had not looked at my xrays, asked me what the problem was or addressed the lack of cartilage was why I was there seeking consultation about knee replacement. Inept is how I would describe his abilities.

Outstanding. I feel fortunate to have Dr. Clark's expertise and experience here in northern Colorado. Had an anterior total hip replacement and am astonished at the results. Dr. Clark is not out to be your best friend and is not one for small talk. That's OK, because what I want is total professionalism, which is what you get. Loveland OCR surgery facilities are superb. I wouldn't trust anyone else with this procedure.

Dr Clark did a total hip revision on me due to my previous hip replacement failing from a different surgeon. After over 55 staples... I was a new man! Highly recommend. He will be replacing my arthritic left hip soon.

I was referred to Dr. Clark by my insurance. After nearly one year, my pain is not resolved. Dr. Clark is extremely arrogant, does not take time to listen to my concerns, and the front desk and nursing staff have been rude.

Had a total knee replacement with Dr Clark. Initially recovered OK and went to all my physical therapy. 6 months afterwards it started swelling. Went to see the Dr and he told me to give it more time to heal. After 2 more appointments and 6 months in time there was no change. He finally poked a needle in the joint and found blood. Had arthroscopic surgery to remove excess soft tissue. The swelling returned in about a month. He said I was probably going to have to live with it.

Dr Clark takes his time explaining the procedure you need and answers any questions . He is easy to work with and gives you a feeling of ease. My knee replacement went well and I am able to walk again without pain. he is a class act and I would recommend him to anyone needing knee surgery.

Very knowledgeable. Listened to my concerns. Recommended I lose weight to help me in the healing process of a knee replacement. I appreciated his honesty as he wanted me to be able to have a positive and quicker recovery. Will be scheduling my surgery with Dr. Clark this summer. It's refreshing to have a doctor tell it like it is and not sugar coat the recovery process.

Rude, didn't even take the time to examine me. He walked in and told me I needed to lose weight before he could help me. He is a weight bigot!
