My last appointment with Dr. Clark was in August (?) of 2021. I have since had some health issues that I need to let him know about but cannot get past the answering service that refuses to transfer me to the Nurse to provide the information regarding my health and how Dr. Clark wants to proceed. I was supposed to have a series of Epidural Injections but my blood pressure has been dropping to the point where I have to take medication to keep it up...it is my Dysautonomia. Due to my blood pressure dropping without notice and randomly I am not allowed to have the Epidural Injections. So I need to be able to get a message to Dr. Clark that I need to try a different treatment but I just cannot get in touch with them!!! Dr. Clark is a great doctor!! The phone service isn't now!!!!!!
