      Dr. Clark says

      I appreciate patient feedback. It helps me understand areas that need improvement, from my interaction with patients, to their office experience. My best source for new patients are satisfied patients that refer to my practice, and surveys help us improve the patient experience.

      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.
      in Redmond WA |
      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Dr. Clark says...

      I have been in private Orthopedic practice for the past 28 years. My goal is to treat each patient individually, and tailor their treatment to achieve the best possible outcome. 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.

      Dr. Clark's Care Philosophy

      Treating patients with respect is important! Being fully present and communicating well with each individual patient is vital to the doctor patient relationship. Educating patients on their diagnosis and treatment options is essential to providing state of the art care in the ever changing medical environment.

      Dr. Clark says...

      My interest in Orthopedic surgery involves treating sports medicine injuries: Knee and Shoulder arthroscopic surgeries; and adult reconstruction: Knee and Hip replacement surgery. I have 28 years of experience in private practice since graduating from the Univ. of Washington Orthopedic Surgery Residency in 1987.

      Dr. Clark says...

      Outpatient surgery is done at the Seattle Orthopedic Surgery Center, a state of the art ASC, with excellent Anesthesia services. My total joint practice is enhanced by minimally invasive total hip surgery, and subvastus approaches for total or hemi knee replacements. All combined these expedite my patient's rehab and return to activity of daily living.
