Dr. Clark is an exceptional neurosurgeon. He performed shunt revisions and Chiari Malformation decompressiion surgery on me from 2002-2004. He needa a better bedside manner, however.

My first visit of many was pleasing. I was nervous about my visit because I had already seen my MRI and could see myself it was bad. I spoke with Dr Clark for about 5 minutes and knew I was in great hands.

I highly recommend Dr Clark. I am scheduling my 3rd lumbar surgery with him since 2010. From experience, I can vouch for his sincere and honest advice, his excellent surgery skills, his straightforward, comprehensive explanation of my problems and options. The office staff are alway friendly and helpful.

Outstanding neurosurgeon! Dr. Clark performed surgery on my neck in 2014 and my lower back in 2019. Both surgeries were very successful in that they relieved the severe pain at each site. He quickly diagnosed the problems and recommended appropriate surgeries to alleviate my pain. He is a very caring doctor!
