Dr. Clark's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Clark "I have been in private Orthopedic practice for the past 28 years.

Surgical and non surgical treatment options are offered to patients after educating them on their diagnosis. This individual approach, coupled with good communication, allows me to connect with the patient and best treat their orthopedic conditions."
