I went in for prolapse - but felt rushed and pressured for surgery that I didn't have all the information for. I saw him or his staff at two different office visits and left crying each time. He has a reputation as a skilled surgeon but I ended up finding a surgeon who took the time to make me feel comfortable with the type of surgery I was having. Additionally, I'm more than 6 months from my appointments with him and I'm STILL receiving bills from his office. His fees are surprisingly hefty!

Dr. Clark as a surgeon does great work, however his office and staff is not something I would recommend, I have worked in this field for a very long time, and to have great health care provided to any individual, it is a package deal. Not only does the physician need to be excellent, they must also have a functioning office. His wait times on the phone are uncalled for, 15 minutes if your lucky. In addition, if you ever want to get a message to the actual doctor himself, good luck if he returns your call. He defiantly heavily relays on his PA's to run his office, during his absence, which is pretty frequently. The question you must ask yourself is, do you want a doctor as a provider or a PA as your provider. I personally would want a doctor as a provider not a PA, the amount of years in training from a doctor to a PA, is a huge difference. I wish you all luck, with his office I personally will not return to get services from this provider. Orange, Ca

I have had 4 surgeries since 2000, and this last one with Dr. Clark was the best.(bladder sling) No pain but a lot of gain. I purchased the stool softeners and post op vitamins. All worked well. I would recommend Dr. Clark to any one who has problems with Incontinence. Thank you so much for a better life. Rosemary Thompson

I am 62 years of age and 6 months ago I had a robotic vaginal hysterectomy with sacrocolpopexy. Dr. Clark is not only empathetic and caring but a surgical wizard! My surgery went very well as did my recovery. I have zero prolapse and had no complications what so ever. Everything is functioning top notch. I highly recommend him. I am so happy with my outcome!

Dr Clark was very professional however his front office staff put my follow up care in jeopardy. He never did a 6 week post op check, never returned my phone calls when I told them I was having complications. They also failed to send complicate medical records and a copy of my MRI to my new Physician delaying my care even further. I can not recommend this Doctor.

Couldn't have asked for a better group. Everyone at this office is so wonderful. The doctor did a wonderful surgery that I am very pleased with. I had my bladder suspended and it went perfectly. The gals at the office including hls assistants Lauren and Ana were all so professional and caring. Vanessa who handled all my paper work did the best job getting it all taken care of and faxed to who needed it. She is amazing. Five stars across through and through. Highly recommend Doctor Clark

Dr. Clark is innovative,knowledgeable and solution-oriented with regards to women's health issues. I am truly grateful to him, Lauren and all of his supportive staff, for successfully helping through some daunting and very painful pelvic floor issues. I have always been treated with dignity and respect. Dr. Clark and Lauren have always taken ample time with me (and my husband) to explain situations and recommended treatment plans. I cannot recommend this team of professionals highly enough.

My experience w/Dr. Clark & his staff was far superior to the first urogynecology center I went to. There was no question I needed to have surgery & my personal physician recommended Dr. Clark for a 2nd opinion. Dr. Clark explained things to me in terminology I could understand. I felt very comfortable w/the knowledge & experience he exuded & that his surgical techniques were going to be the best for me. I highly recommend Dr. Clark & his friendly, professional staff.

Dr. Clark discussed my upcoming surgery in great detail answering all questions to my complete satisfaction. His office staff was thoughtful and professional making me feel at ease. During and after my surgery, Dr. Clark continued to support me by keeping me updated as to recovery and expectations. The robotic surgery allowed me to heal quickly and get back to work in a couple of weeks. I feel like I am so much better than before the surgery and back to my normal active lifestyle!

My regular gynecologist recommended Dr. Clark to me and from my first office visit I felt confident with both Dr. Clark and his PT's. I had a complete hysterectomy and walked out of the hospital the following day. Was driving & out walking in a couple of days. Just went for my 6 week checkup and all is good. Would definitely recommend Dr. Clark to anyone needing a Urogynecologist.

Excellent results for several repairs needed at my age. Sling cleared up one of the most frustrating of the problems. Dr. Clark did NOT recommend a total hysterectomy like some of the other Newport Beacg Gynecologists I consulted with. Totally satisfied with my results, with office visits and Dr. Clark's work. Highly Recommend Matthew Clark.

I had pelvic reconstruction a year ago, and I would recommend Dr. Clark to anyone needing this type of surgery. This is by far the best medical clinic that I have seen in my 75 years. They are very understanding, compassionate, and give excellent medical care. I also felt comfortable with Lauren the P.A. She is a magnificent helper. From the time I first called the office, I was treated as a person and not just a number. The follow-up care is absolutely excellent.

From the moment I walked in to my first appointment the staff and Dr. Clark were compassionate, reassuring, and gave me hope that he can restore my body. I was terrified going in an comforted leaving. I had a robotic partial hysterectomy and cystocele with mesh. Dr. Clark is amazing. I have no reservation saying he is the best! He was able to restore my body! I am so grateful for the Clark Center for Urogynecology!

Although I was hesitant to have surgery, I was totally at ease with Dr. Clark. The office gals are great, the PA is super and Dr. Clark was professional in every way. I had the surgery and recovered easily. Just had my six month check up and everything is as it should be. I couldn't be happier.
