I don't understand the bad reviews for Dr. Clark. I think he has a reassuring, calming bedside manner. He is personable, listens, and actually asks what the patient thinks or feels. He walks in, sits and actually TALKS with me, not AT me.I have recommended several friends to him and will continue to do so.

Dr. Clark has awful bedside manner. When you ask him a question, he makes you feel dumb not knowing the answer... or as if it were so obvious. He completely rushed us through the appointment and was pretty much running out the door as we were asking questions. He didn't even ask if we were done, or if we had any other concerns. I would NEVER recommend him. Its sad too, because he really might be a great doctor but we just didn't get to see that.
in Chicago, IL |
Dr. Clark is very uncaring and not at all reassuring to his patient about their prognosis or future plan/treatment. He makes you feel like you are wasting his time. He only states the obvious, which can be found on google. I feel bad and advise future patients to go to someone else or spend their money on a physician that is willing to devote his time.
