Patient Comments (1)
Chicago, IL |
Contrary to other Chicago pulmonologists with whom I’ve had experience, Dr. Clarke is very accessible and willing to speak with you over the phone. He is very thorough, and I trust his medical advice. His office staff is outstanding, and they all really enjoy working for Dr. Clarke, which speaks volumes about him. I would highly recommend Dr. Clarke, and I’ve seen pulmonologists at Northwestern Medicine and Mayo Clinic.
