It was late afternoon on a Friday. I noticed something amiss with my right eye. I called many eye doctors, but none was available nor willing to see me until next week. I finally called Dr Clark, who called minutes later and instructed me to consult with him. He met me and opened his office and examined my eye with no assistance. He found a detached retina and coordinated my care to Wills eye Hospital. Operation was successful, all at Wills complimented my care with Dr Clark. I am so very thankful to this kind physician.

I had an appointment with Dr. Clark, which went very well. The manner in which the doctor described my problem in detail to me. He takes the time to answer all of my questions. He was the first eye doctor to assist me with my 5-year-old condition. The ladies in the office are the same way; if I have a question or need assistance, they are quick to respond. I strongly advise anyone with an eye condition to see Dr. Clark, the finest of the best.

The doctor and his staff are excellent. The doctor is a miracle worker. This is the best I've felt in years. I'm overjoyed that I didn't need a cataract procedure, as my prior ophthalmologist had strongly urged, but only needed an update in my glasses prescription. Doctor Clarke is a true professional. Not looking forward to any surgery, thank you Dr. Clarke

Thank you Anthony, the tech, Wills Eye Surgery center, and Dr. Clark. I have been a mess since being diagnosed with Cataracts at a young age. After several consults, we chose Dr Clark because he is skilled with new technology. I am absolutely delighted. He and his staff will spend so much time with advanced testing to make sure you get the best exam. His dedication is just astounding.

Arthur C. Phila., Pa. – Oct 13, 2021
For many years, Dr. Clark has kept my eyes and those of my wife healthy. He is a true professional who has practically saved my life by accurately diagnosing potentially life-threatening health concerns by only looking at my eyes. We both enthusiastically endorse him.

Dr. Clark has been my eye doctor for well over 20 years, and he has always been proactive when I've had any disease or symptoms, frequently offering me free samples of new(er) meds that I couldn't afford or get through my own health insurance company. When it comes to completing preventative exams, his team is equally efficient and kind/engaging. He's a genuinely kind guy.

I was astounded by the short wait time! Seeing Dr. Clark was a fantastic experience in every way. It's evident that he genuinely cares about the well-being of his patients. To be honest, I'm a tech nerd. I've never seen such incredible technology utilized to inspect my eye. Additionally, the technology used to disinfect, neutralize the Covid virus is unprecedented. Thank you for protecting your patients.

Their staff was very professional and extremely knowledgeable about my situation and took the time to put it into clear terms so that I understood how everything worked. Their facilities were very clean as well, and they made me feel like home. Covid safety precautions--- none better. Staff---the best I have experienced Dr Francis Clark---- you are the kindest, most caring of doctors/people.

Ned Ward – Oct 07, 2021
Dr. Clark was the only doctor I saw that was able to help me out of the many I saw. I went to see him since I had dry eyes. I was treated as an individual rather than a number of patients. He took the time to listen and worked with me to find a remedy, not just a band-aid. He was calm and collected. During appointments, I never felt rushed. He is a one-of-a-kind doctor and the greatest I've ever had.

He's been my eye doctor for about a year and has always given me the finest attention, as well as, I believe, the best advise and treatment. Excellent service and a really friendly doctor! Everything you could want in a doctor's office is right here. He practices in a compassionate and patient-centered manner. Dr. Clark and his staff are all I could have wished for in a doctor.

Dr. Clark is an excellent ophthalmologist. Anywhere else would be a waste of time for me. He did my cataract surgery and placed Stints in for my glaucoma at the same time, so I no longer need drops and the stints are keeping the pressure off my eyes. He knows what he's doing and talks about the selections.

I am very pleased to be a new patient of Dr. Clark. I have heard many good things about him from my family and they had encouraged me to meet him. Now that I have, I feel even more pleased and blessed to have him. He's also surrounded by wonderful people , who speak with such admiration and loyalty about him. I feel like I couldn't be in better hands. You're a great doctor.

I am quite fortunate to have discovered this location. I awoke early on a Sunday morning with excruciating eye ache. Dr. Clark welcomed me into his office at 9 a.m. He did everything he could to help me after I was diagnosed with a corneal ulcer. I was completely healed at the follow-up appointment. His team is the friendliest I've ever met, and they actually assisted me in getting back to where I wanted to be. I can't say enough good things about them!
