Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure.

Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372.

Dr. Clark if not the best is one of the best health care providers that I have had the pleasure of meeting. He is very thorough, professional, and patient when it comes to ensuring I am well informed on my condition. I brought my mom and dad to an appointment with me pre-Covid they were ver impressed. I could go on. Give him a raise or praise

My experience was positive. Dr. Clark was thorough in his explanation of my CT results and discussed options to consider for correction. Dr. Clark repeated an examination of my sinuses to check for infection, inflammation and/or obstruction. Surgery was discussed in detail including post-operative care. I never felt that Dr. Clark was rushing to get to his next appointment. I was very happy about that because I had many questions for him to answer. I trust Dr. Clark's medical intelligence and experience to examine, diagnose and offer the best advice for treatment. I would and have recommended Dr. Clark to friends and family for ENT issues.
