What People Say About Dr. Carey Clark III, MD

Dr. Clark is exceptionally caring, concerned about patient's understanding, extremely professional and thorough. His surgical work is superior. I would recommend him with no hesitation to anyone requiring hand or wrist surgery. I was referred to him by the Texas Spine and Joint Urgent Care facility after a fall that resulted in a broken wrist. He explained exactly what treatment was required and the surgery that was needed. The surgery was completed with no complications and a scar that is nearly invisible. Dr Clark managed my pain during recovery in a way that made me as comfortable as possible. I hope I never have to go through this again, but if I do, I will certainly return to Dr. Clark.

Dr Clark was beyond amazing!!! Truly the best care I’ve ever received. However, I must say Tiffany Dresser Dr Clark’s nurse is the MOST dedicated, caring, wonderful nurse. Azalea and Dr Clark could not run the way the Dr Clark’s office does without her. I truly cannot say enough good things about Tiffany. She had what was and is a very difficult and painful situation not so bad. I love her dearly as I do Dr Clark. Thank you for being so amazing.

I never dreamed how wonderful sleeping a full night could be without pain. My suggestion to anyone having hand pain should never wait and just go to Dr. Clark. There is no pain , I was so scared after surgery my pain would be worse , but not with him. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. - Damron
