Patient Comments (5)
Brighton, MI |
Dr. Clark performed simultaneous Lasik Touchup for both my eyes. Post surgery I was sent home with goggles that fell off during the night, and In my sleep I rubbed my itchy eyes! Both eye flaps wrinkled. and over the course of months I was treated with a very strong saline solution. This was a frightening experience!. I believe the goggles chosen by Dr. Clark were a poor choice, but his surgical procedure was good; as now that my eye flaps have recovered I see well.

Great office staff and great visit. I only waited about 15 min for my appointment, and was very pleased with the overall exam. I will be back next year and would recommend to friends and family
Howell, MI |
I was referred to Dr. Clark by my PCP, after what I thought was pink eye, wasn't getting better. I had never had my eyes checked before,(have always had perfect vision) and Dr. Clark diagnosed me with iritis. Furthermore, he described in detail what having iritis could be related to and scheduled me for some blood work. Dr. Clark was 100% right and I am now being treated for an auto immune disorder. Thank you Dr. Clark and to all the staff!

-Dr Clark spends very little time with you. Maybe two or three minutes. He has a handful of tech/assistants that do all the testing, record medical information and ask questions. Assembly line. -Dr Clark always runs late in meeting his appointment times. He is typically at least one to two hours late by afternoon. You wait around a very long time to see the actual Dr (briefly). -He recommends laser surgery to his patients & has a huge clientele of senior citizens stacked up for Medicare surgery.
Excellent bedside manner. Great surgical skill
