What People Say About Dr. Herbert Clark, MD

Excellent! 15 years ago Dr. Clark repaired my blown out knee. To this date I enjoy rigorous activity to include extreme mountain biking, skiing, extreme dirt bike riding and most importantly- my career as a Seattle Firefighter! I didn't give him much to work with considering my three previous knee surgeries and injuries had eaten away much of the joint. Those surgeries, performed by others, never felt stable. As a result, I was significantly contemplating what my future held as a result of that last knee injury. Truly wondering if I would be able to continue my career. Not only was I able to continue my career, the repair was so much more stable that I became comfortable pursuing all of my passions listed above. Just an absolutely excellent surgeon! Since we met, much time has past. Each of my family members and myself have seen Dr Clark for various maladies. Dr Clark is an orthopedic specialist, but his skills go well beyond being a miracle worker in the Operating Room.

I've had two knee surgeries performed by Dr. Clark. Both outcomes were highly successful and I felt I was treated with utmost professionalism. Good Doc! Good Staff!

Dr. Clark is an excellent provider. More importantly he wants to build a relationship with his patients. My relationship with him has grown since tremendously since I have been seeing him for knee issues since 1997. I have total and absolute trust in his judgment and expertise. I would recommend him to anyone looking for outstanding care and technique.

Dr. Clark is a unique physician in that he truly listens to patients and cares about my orthopaedic problems. His bedside manner while in the hospital after surgery made me feel at ease and I trusted that I was in good hands. The outcome from my total knee surgery has been A+ and my life has been changed because of it. Access to doctors is changing so rapidly and access to physicians with a high touch seems a bit of the past. Dr.clark has maintained his high touch and I am grateful for this.

I have gone to Dr. Clark for 15 yrs. I will continue as his patient as long as he still is practicing. He treats you as a person not a number and will spend enough time with you to answer all of your questions. I would recommend him to anyone.
