Dr is knowledgeable on Orthopedic needs, good customer service from Staff.

Horrible experience Pay attention all the positive reviews wrote on March 14, mmmm I had a very bad experience. Very rude, unprofessional who made me feel he only cares about charging the customer and didn't help me at all with my problem. I don't mind paying for service, but the way they do felt shady and I can't trust that doctor with my body. I really highly recommend to stay away.

I came here after Dr. Clark accepted my file after I broke my leg on a skiing trip while on vacation. I waited over an hour to see him and then when he finally got in the room, he was very short with me and let me know there was nothing he was going to help me with that day and that I needed to schedule another appointment a week out. I went and got a second opinion from a really great doctor the following day and he took X-rays and was able to remove my stitches. Would not recommend Dr. Clark.

Went to Dr. Clark for a second opinion; waited in lobby for an hour (seriously an hour) before being called back to a room, then after nurse completed review waited another 30 minutes (seriously because by this time I was writing it down and keeping track) after 30 minutes Dr. Clark popped his head in to say he would be right in, but after another 25 minutes he did come back and he did do a thorough examination. Was pleased with service once we finally saw him but be prepared to wait.

He listens, asks questions and does a careful physical examination. He doesn't waste time
