Dr. Clark, is a very knowledgeable doctor and he explained everything that he was doing and checking for. He took time to answer all my questions and gave me information to read to understand what he would be doing in the surgery to help me breath better. He took time to walk me to his assistant to make the scheduling for surgery, which was very nice and caring. He gave me numbers to call him at if I had any other questions. I am very much impressed with Doctor Clark and Baylor Scott and White Hospital.

He LISTENED on the initial office. He reviewed information & CT scans that was available at the time of this same of the original appointment. He asked many questions & listened to the responses. He made eye contact each time. He suggested continued meds of relief or surgery. Since I had already used the meds for 18 mos., surgery was agreed to; detailed info was clearly given and surgery was scheduled within 18 days. He & his staff made me confident of the care before, during & after surgery. He even contacted my spouse after we were had just gotten home to checked on the post-op needs. His follow-up ofc visits were consist with his actions. I feel very conforatble returning to his care each time. I would use his services again if the same need arises. Any one needing ENT services would be fortunate to have Dr Clark care for them. - A very grateful patient.
