Dr Clark is an excellent surgeon. My wife and I were impressed that Dr. Clark initiated a prayer with us prior to the surgery. We believe, along with Dr. Clark's training and experience, this contributed to the successful outcome that I experienced.

Dr. David W. Clark was able to pinpoint a nosebleed problem that I had been dealing with for eight years! I had already gone through numerous procedures and several surgeries trying to find the source of bleeding!After being referred to Dr. Clark by another Physician, Dr. Clark found the source of the problem and stopped the bleeding! I and my family are very thankful. He is very special to us!
