in Norwood, NY |
I had a total hip replacement surgery on April 19, 2017. Dr. Clarke is excellent! He takes his time talking to you about the surgery. He did an excellent job on my surgery. I was home the next day ! I would highly recommend Dr. Clarke to anyone. If I need my other hip done, I will go back to Dr. Clarke.
in Farmington , NY |
My experience was excellent with Dr Clarke and his staff. From the time my insurance kicked in1/1/2017 the wait time was nothing to get my resurfacing surgery completed which was on 1/25/2017. I like how he was straight to the point and let's get this done attitude. I did my research and knew he would do the best option for me (I was pushing for BHR surgery).It took him only a half hour or less to complete the procedure and let me tell you this Dr. knows what he's doing.top notch surgeon.
in Kirkville, NY |
Would definitely recommend him. He is a straight forward shooter - talks in terms a lay person understands and dictates his diagnosis and actions taken / to be taken right in front of you. Wish more doctors acted like he did. Surgery date is in the future and if initial meeting is anything like surgery, I am confident that I'm in good hands.
in Baldwinsville, NY |
My wife and I found Dr. Clarke charming, thorough and happily relatively conservative in his approach to my concerns. I thought I would need a knee replacement but he resolved my problem for now with recommendations other than that.
Ithaca, NY |
Brilliant surgeon. I wouldn't consider any other hip surgeon. A bit brusque but much more patient-friendly than a few years ago.
in Syracuse, NY |
Doctor was "right to the point" in his explanation of the procedures he was going to use. - clear explanations.
in Cicero, NY |
During the last 6 monthsI have received excellent care by Dr Clarke and Mary Scozzari RPA. They have both explained any questions I had about hip replacement surgery. The surgery was explained and performed successfully. I would recommend Dr Clarke to others.
in Cuyler, ny |
Dr. Clarke diagnosed my problem within five minutes after three other orthopedic Drs could not. I recommend him to anyone I meet who has orthopedic issues.
in Bridgeport, NY |
Dr. Mike listens. I went in with some concerns about my other hip. Through his eye contact and body language, it's easy to see that he is concerned and not dismissive.
in Pulaski N.Y. |
My experience with doctor Clarke was and continues to be great.He is very knowledgeable about his profession and explains things in a way so that I am able to understand what he is going to do and what is happening. I have had a lot of unexpected complications due to infections. His ability to treat me and continue to battle the on going issues with my wound has made me feel confident that I amay in the hands of a great surgeon.
in Syracuse, NY |
My hip replacements went great! Dr Clarke is an awesome person and always kept me informed and answered all of my questions. His bright personality and smile made me at ease all of the time. I have already recommended him to friends that are in need of his help.
in Endwell, NY |
I have been a patient of Dr Clarke's since 2008. He is an excellent surgeon but one who will rule out all alternatives before recommending surgery. He is compassionate and is one of the best in handling complex cases.
in Binghamton, NY |
great dr and he does a great job
West Fulton, NY |
Dr. Clarke was the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. He made me feel worthless and that I was a waste of time. Very condescending.
in Philadelphia, PA |
My experience with Dr. Clarke and his staff couldn't have been better. The surgery, nine years ago, was easier than I hoped for, and my experience with him and his staff since has always been professional, pleasant and helpful. Any questions I had were always answered clearly, and I've always felt I was treated with respect by Dr. Clarke and his staff. I was also seen on time for my two follow up visits since the initial surgery.
in Manlius, NY |
Dr. Clarke performed a left and then a right hip resurfacing 8 years ago, and the results have given me back my life. I enjoy downhill skiing, aerobic workouts at the gym, and everything that I was able to do before OA. Dr. Clarke continues to annually monitor my joint health, and is always patient and knowledgeable, answering any questions with understandable terminology. I feel very fortunate that he was in Syracuse when I needed help. O
in Ithaca, NY |
Terrific doctor!
in Venice Beach, Florida |
I really liked Dr Clarke's expertise, personality and ethics. I have had a total hip replacement surgery in 2006 and 1 year later a revision surgery with Dr Clarke. Both times I had the BEST experience!!!
in Bonita Springs FL & Mannsville, NY |
I consider Dr Clarke to be very straight forward, honest and complete with his answers and discussions regarding my case. He never rushed an appointment and you left with a high sense of confidence in his ability. 5 star!
in OSwego NY |
SAw me for hip pain. Had a list of suggested ideas. Surgery was at the bottom of the list. A shot of cortisone helped a lot. Thanks to Dr Clarke
