I have had mental health problems all my life and have seen many psychiatrists over the years.Dr. Clark is by far the best I have seen over my lifetime and I have been seeing her for the past 4 years. She is personable and understanding and kind and she spends quality time with you my appointments are one hour long and she covers all the bases and keeps up with your general health as well. I highly recommend Dr. Kristen Clark to anyone seeking excellent mental health care.

I have never been treated so poorly and rudely in my entire life. The receptionist is mean nasty and condescending. I was treated like a child that was naughty. Dr. Clark is a fine doctor. But I will not be back. I am never going to put up with anybody treating me like that again.

Rude-I will never do business there again. The staff manager Joan is the rudest person I have ever encountered at a health care office. The entire experience was horrendous. I am never dealing with them again and I will pass this onto anyone who I encounter considering her.
