Dr. Clark is the perfect combination of a professional and compassionate doctor. His practice is also the ultimate example in patient-centered care. I knew going in I had a stomach issue/surgery that had the potential for serious complications. The procedure's result turned out to be the absolute best possible outcome and my quality of life has been restored. Thank you, Dr. Clark, for all your years of study & training and being the best of the best in your field.

Such a great experience! Throughout the whole surgery process, I felt comfortable, accepted, and well-cared for. I never felt ashamed of my weight. I felt empowered by Dr Clark and his PA Tim to take control of my health!

I first met Dr. Clark on 2/23/15 for my first appointment in Anchorage, I live in Juneau, at this time I weighted in at 433 lbs, he did not chastise me about my weight, we discussed what my options were to improve my overall health. I lost weight to make the surgery safer for him and for me. When I reached 331 lbs bariatric sleeve surgery was performed on 10/19/15. Today I weigh 180 lbs and off all medications. Being in Juneau was a challenge, but he was with me the entire journey. Thankyou
