      conscientious, thorough, not knife happy (ie, too eager for surgery), does not hurry and explains everything, had shoulder arthroscopy with RTC repair with NO pain afterwards--(only "pain" was having to wear the darn abduction pillow and sling)-- as a healthcare provider and Operating Room nurse I recommend Dr. Clark

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Clark says...

      Dr. Ron Clark says that his greatest satisfaction is helping people find relief of their bone and joint problems. He takes time to ensure that all questions that his patients have are answered in a way that most people can understand. He uses state of the art imaging materials to demonstrate with the patients the results of x-rays or MRI's so that the patient is clear as to what is the cause of the particular problem. Dr. Clark has been in practice for over 20 years and only treats the conditions that he has become skilled and successful in helping others with and will help patients find an expert if their condition requires extra care.

      Dr. Clark's Care Philosophy

      Each patient is important to Dr. Clark and he listens to each individual's concerns. Following a personal interview and examination, Dr. Clark will give an explanation using non-medical terms to educate his patient related to their condition and the options available to treat them. Dr. Clark has a soft spoken approach to the care and treatment of patients that most find reassuring. Ample time is allowed for patients to express their concerns and ask questions.
