It is refreshing to know that medical care in the US isn't totally in the trash pile. This is the first example of a patient centered compassionate medical experience I have encountered in the last 10 years. Dr Clark sorrounds himself with the best!
in Lansdale, PA |
Dr. Clark is a rockstar as a surgeon and Dr. He is a throwback to the old time doctor that cares about his patients and their needs he guided me through very difficult times with my eyes when others offered no options he is always available and truly cares about his patients needs
Chicago, IL |
Dr Fran Clark is the most dedicated,caring doctor I have taken care of me. He always treats me as a human being and has not lost the personal touch in medicine. I get his undivided attention when I am in his office. Front desk needs improving
Collegeville, PA |
Dr. Clarke solved a problem with my vision for which I have given up hope after other evaluations.. He took such a dedicated interest in my case, asked directed questions, showed great empathy and insight. The result has transformed my life. I give the highest recommendations.. He takes the time to understand patients' needs and is incredible personable.
in Horsham, PA |
After a bad result with another surgeon, I had my second eye performed by Dr Clark. Apparently both were done with same laser technology, but the Clark eye sees perfectly. He was able to correct my astigtism, reading, with less costs, faster surgery, and a much better experience. He trated me as a person , not a nuisance.
I have had 2 successful cataract surgeries with this practice recently, specifically with Dr Clark and his terrific assistants Ashley and June. The surgeries were very easy from a patient perspective and recovery was immediate. It is very comforting to have a doctor so highly regarded by his colleagues at the Wills Eye Surgery Center. I am a triathlete so it is a wonderful gift to no longer need contacts and glasses. The quality of my life is so vastly improved.
It is reassuring to know that doctors like Dr Clark are around. After being told that my cataracts were "beyond ripe" and needed immediate care with surgery, I was fortunate to see Dr Clark for another opinion. After a most extensive exam he reassured me that the surgery was totally optional. Since I was seeing well,he recommended waiting until my vision worsened.

So it took me a while to track down this doc About 1 year ago I was stuck on the Pa turnpike with a flat tire raining cold scared and not sure what to do A man in scrubs pulled up say hello and told me he could help He fixed my tire gave me his cell and told me he was a phone call away He told me he fixed many a tire in his youth I was never to truly able to say thank you as I was totally bewildered Thank you Dr Francis Clark!!!
in Quakertown, Pa |
I would strongly lead all to Dr. Clark to any individual requiring cataract surgery. It was the 3rd evaluation as I wanted to explore the best choice in surgeons . This was the most professional, detailed exam I have ever had in 60 years, with tests I was never exposed to. He was a very pleasant person to talk to, but also very professional and ethical as well. No effort to "upgrade" to special gold packages that required an outlay of uncovered insurance services. I felt I was in very good ha
Absolutely first rate, fantastic surgeon, and a true gentlemen. Amazing results from a very complicated surgery with only 1 eye. Did my research before choosing him.
in Philadelphia, PA |
I am so honored to write this review of the kindness, dedication, professionalism of Dr Clark. I went to emergency room at an unnamed hospital for very blurred vision. They found nothing and were ready to send me home. A call from Dr Clark insisting on further testing found a hole in my heart I must of had my entire life. The docs in ER couldn't be more apologetic but at least they listened to Dr Clark... I am totally humbled and appreciative of this doctor.
DR clark is a very gentle kind man who puts his patients care and ultimate outcome first.
in Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Clark is all around excellent. He exceeded all of my expectations. He was very thorough in every aspect of the procedure, from the initial evaluation through the surgery and recovery period. He patiently explained everything in detail and completely answered all of my questions. I would recommend anyone who have eye needs to schedule an appointment with Dr. Clark.
Dr Clark is one of the most qualified doctors I have seen. Traveling a great distance do to very happy family in Phila. Area who are patients, I made the right choice for my cataract surgery. A skilled seasoned surgeon with the rare combo of compassion, competence, cutting edge. The exam was the most thorough.
My new eye doctor is Francis Clarke. He is honest and approachable. My previous eye doctor was scheduling simultaneous cataract and.glaucoma surgery, no options, this is the way it is. Not feeling to the core if this was the way to go, I saw Dr Clarke for his thoughts. He performed a Slt laser treatment, has me off my drops, and Felt I had years before needing cataract surgery. I did get a third opinion by Glaucoma Specialist at Wills Eye, who confirmed Dr Clarke's approach .
in Doylestown, Pa. |
I have been visiting with him for 5 years as I have a complicated chronic eye condition. Saw 4 doctors before him; they couldn't figure out what I had. He is very knowledgeable and stays informed on the latest treatments. Hard to believe there is a better eye doctor.
in Philadelphia, PA |
I am not one to write reviews but this doctor deserves to be recognized. My ophtomlogist confirmed my suspicions that I needed my lens removed for my nasty cataracts had hardened. Next thing I knew he turned into a car salesman, barely examining my eye but spinning my head with all sorts of "packages". And I liked this doc for the last 10 yrs of seeing him. I was recommended to DR Clark by my pastor and friends. Bottom line: I only need the lense covered by my insurance.
in Lansdale, Pa. |
great all around doc, empathetic, on the ball. very well schooled on new proceedures. has a large caring staff to help with all your needs. several other docs on staff to specialize in your individual needs.

I wanted to share my experience with this doctor and staff. I recently had cataract surgery x2 by Dr Francis Clark. On both occasions everyone I encountered at the office and surgery center of Abington from beginning to end was most professional, caring , and efficient. The expertise of dr. Clark and the final results were incredible. He humbly gave credit to the staff he worked with. That speaks a lot for this doctor and staff. Thank you!
I am a surgical nurse and did extensive research to pick the cataract surgeon for my parents. Both were recently performed at the Blue Bell Surgery Center by Dr Francis Clark. The staff in the office and center were outstanding. I can appreciate a surgeon who is very skilled and competent yet conservative, non pushy, patient, compassionate.
Great group of eye doctors led by Dr C. They have teamed to pull me through some very difficult times with my eyes. Dr C. Has always been there for me recently seeing me in the middle of the night last week. Very dedicated and kind.

I have had a very similar experience with this office and Dr Clark detailed by others. I was referred to " the best " cataract surgeon in Philadelphia and was tolD I absolutely needed expensive upgraded lasers and lenses no discussion nor other options Dr Clark charged me nothing extra zero Nada I am so so happy with my vision after cataract surgery with him His entire staff has his same caring attitude. The place to go for ethical quality care.
My entire family is very appreciative of the manner upon which Dr Fran Clark examines and cares for our physically challenged daughter. This is very rare in our encounters with physicians He has the patience of a saint!
in Warminster, Pa. |
I had a very similar experience with this practice. First with Dr Montag, than Dr Sponberg, finally for catarct surgery with Dr Clark. I also was ready to spend extra add ons to my catarct surgery with another surgeon. Dr Clark assured me the added expenses were not necessary. He was obviously correct as I see better than ever, and no glasses! Waiting for doctor can be a nuisance.
Dr Clark is the kindest, most dedicated physcians. He guided me to the most advanced cataract techniques without pushing integrated options vigorously suggested by another. With perfect distance vision, I can read the most minuscule of print.
in North Wales |
You won't find a more caring doctor and staff. Quality, patient centered, cutting edge medical care. I experienced this on every occasion.
in Ambler |
He saved me from having unnecessary surgery. Kind, caring professional. He is dedicated to providing the most up to date cutting edge technology.
The office is run very efficiently. The care from the staff is universally very caring and professional. Dr Francis gives the most thorough exams and educated me very professionally on the status health of my eyes. This is quality medical care.
in Philadelphia |
I am indebted to this site for directing me to Dr Clarke. 1 year ago my right eye had cataract surgery with a special ordered lens that cost several thousand dollars. My vision is worse than before surgery. I trusted my longstanding surgeon but he basically told me to "live with it". Dr Clarke did my second eye and was able to clear up the vision in the first eye. I am forever grateful.
in Willow Grove, Pa. |
A lesson for all. Both myself and my sister before me were told we needed to schedule cataract surgery on the day of our exam with the same practice. No options-- expensive laser technology not covered by basic insurance. We both saw DR Clark for another option, and both were given same advice that since we had no troubles, we didn't require surgery.
in Warminster |
The doctor has very graciously seen my husband at our home since his dementia got worse. This kind care has gone on for several years. We need more doctors like Dr Clark
in Doylrstown |
Steller doctor with skills that match his attitude to patient care and surgical outcomes. Impressed me that he could deliver the same outcome that 2 others were going to charge me extra beyond insurance.
New York, NY |
His clinical skills were remarkable, his bedside manner was terrific, his technology was cutting edge. He helped me with an eye problem that has plagued me for years
in Ambler, PA |
Stop. Before anyone has cataract surgery visit this office and doctor. I am totally free of glasses without spending xtra money for vague uncovered services (previous eye doctor) All he cares about is your best outcome and is dedicated to the best technology Amazing doctor
in Abington |
The exam I received was the most entensive in my 50+ years of eye exams. Fortunately a tumor was found behind my eye. Dr clark saved both my vision and eye. I will be forever grateful. Janet T. Abington, Pa.
Doc Clark is the best. My eye vision after he performed laser cataract removal on both of my eyes is the most awesome of experiences. His skill is matched by his kind qualities.
in Doylestown Pa |
Dr Clark saved me from having unnecessary cataract surgery that was recommended by my previous eye surgeon. Tremendous doctor with very engaging bedside manner. John T. Doylestown Pa
in Ambler |
During a routine exam by Dr. Clarke, he found a problem when my vision was fading out. He thought it was due to my left carotid artery being blocked, and he recommended that I immediately go to the Emergency Room @ Abington Hospital. During my scan, they found my left carotid artery to be 90% blocked, and found right to be 80% blocked. It was immediately fixed as I was told that if I didn't have it fixed i could have a plaque brake off and cause blindness or stroke. If it hadn't been for Dr. Cl

Thank you to Dr Clark for my perfect vision. He can see everything without glasses. He was the only surgeon willing to do this without charging me extra money. There is not a more generous and ethical surgeon than he.
in Conshohocken, PA |
I always have a great experience at Dr. Clark's office. Friendly, knowledgable staff. I would't trust anyone else with my eye care!

I liked the services and care provided by Dr. Clark. He was highly efficient and professional. But I like his demeanor as a doctor even better. He is kind, polite, pleasant, optimistic, and encouraging. He takes his time and his movements are not rushed and chaotic. He speaks with a lot of reserve. Overall, I would highly recommend
in Willow Grove, PA |
My recent experience with Wills Eye and Dr Clark was life transforming. The care given and the expertise of Clark was remarkable!
in Phila Pa |
I recently switched to this office after a terrible experience with another. Amazingly, the experience with this practice was absulutely superior from the attitude of the staff to the results of laser surgery for my cataracts. I give the entire office your highest rating! Dr. Clark is a true gem!
in Philadelphia, PA |
New to this practice and doctor. Dr clark found a melanom in my eye on my first exam with him and I just saw an eye doctor 2 months ago. Clark saved my eye and life according to specialist at Wills. Clark exam was very lengthy and thorough.
in Philadelphia, PA |
I didn't deal with Dr, Clark, but my fully insured daughter and I dealt with his extremely rude staff today, when a clerical mistake by Blue Cross kicked back the referral. Office receptionist Jessica was rude, snickering at my daughter, telling her she couldn't be seen today. Then, office worker Stephanie tried to incite trouble, by literally bumping into me when we were in a heated discussion . Manager Renee was polite but ineffective in resolving our issue. This doc doesn't hire well.
in Abington, Pa |
My husband was a trauma patient at abington hospital with brain damage and bleeding behind his eye. A very caring, confident eye doctor came out to examine him in the late evening and was very kind, professinal, and cnfident. He performed an emergency, quick procedure on him and I am told , saved his vision. Many thanks to Dr Clark for your professional care. The only caring doctor we dealt with through this horrible event.
in Philadelphia, PA |
Office staff needs customer service training--as good as doctor Clarke maybe, his staff is the 1st point of contact and can be perceived as rude and non-helpful. I have sat there and watched the way they interacted with some of the older patients and it is just so wrong. If you place a call to their office 9 and of 10 times, you are placed on hold, most recent was 15 minutes, ended up hanging up I stopped using Doctor Clarke due to his staff--
