My daughter came in the ER with an intestinal hernia that they were unable to reduce manually. She was in excruciating pain for hours, vomiting bile, symptoms of the bowel blockage. It took hours for them to do a CT scan to make sure the hernia wasn't strangulated, which would mean emergency surgery. Dr. Clark was the surgeon on call and was not in the hospital. The ER doctor came in and said that Dr. Clark read the scan and thought they could wait until morning for surgery. When I asked the doctor why he would wait so long and risk it becoming strangulated, he said "it's not my call." To make a long story short, it did become strangulated and he had to remove 6 inches of her intestine as well. Now.... why would a dr. just "sit" on an acute abdomen? Could it be that it was 10 pm on a Friday night? I don't know. But he did not have my daughter's best interest at heart. I would not recommend him to anyone.

Horrible! Family member had to go to the ER & found out they had an obstructed bowel which required emergency surgery. After opened up Clark cannot preform the surgery, he stated because stomach was covered in so much cancer it was “frozen” & could not even get to the intestines to unblock it. Less than 24 hours later our family gathers so Clark can “break the news” stage 4 carsinomatosis however, not sure what type of cancer yet. Complete devastation! Two weeks later, biopsy (benign) and a PET scan with no cancer detected!!! WE NEED ANSWERS!!!!! Btw, the bowel blockage fixed itself, too bad that huge incision won’t!

Before the surgery everything was good, sadly after surgery it has been a whole different story. I saw him once and he said I have to return since the glue in my hernias scars were still there. I have tried 2 times to see him again since I have still one hernia (1 of 3) and he is always in an emergency and he hasn’t even been able to reach me or apologize. I can’t believe I had this bad experience and still with my remaining hernia that the surgery went wrong. I still need to look for another doctor and of course being able to pay another surgery to fix what he didn’t do in the beginning. Choose a better doctor!!! My honest and real advice.

While any kind of surgery is never easy. Dr. Clark was wonderful His proactive approach to side effects of anesthesia was greatly appreciated.. His calm demeanor and excellent bedside manner was especially calming to both myself and my family. I'm so glad that my doctor referred me to Dr. Clark
