I was informed that if I didn\'t have my co-pay I could not be seen. I accidentally left my credit card home and told the clerk I could call my payment in when I got home. She informed me I would not be seen. If this is your hospital policy then I will be looking into finding another health organization. My appointment was for a serious concern and urgent. I realized I had a gift card so I used that as payment. I arrived at 8am for a 8am appointment but was not seen until 9:10am. No one updated me on the delay as I sat in the Dr\'s. office. However once I met the Dr. I was pleased with his care and concern as well as attention to what I said and his explanation about the procedure and care. He is an excellent communicator and has great bedside manners.

I had an appt. with another Dr. on the 12th of Feb. He wanted me to see Dr. Clark for a second opinion and also have a cat scan of my sinuses. He assured me I could not see Dr. Clark until the next week. I live 4 hours away and wasn\'t looking forward to driving back. When I got to the front desk the girls were so nice. They arranged for me to have the cat scan at 5pm that day and to see Dr. Clark the next morning at 10:15 am. Dr. Clark is amazing. I had gone for a second opinion and did I ever get one. He spent at least an hour with me. I am very impressed.

I love Dr. Clark and Scott&White. I know you have "Baylor" now in the name but you all were my allergist as a child in the 70s and this location has always conveyed excellence. Dr. Clark very much maintains the legacy that others before him established. The reputation of Scott&White goes back a century in Texas and Dr. Clark stands with your great doctors over that time.He is an excellent surgeon but equally good as a clinician - including his oversight of infection control of my condition, which is extremely complex even under academic parameters. My dad is a retired Pathologist, and I am very knowledgeable about the issues involved, so my assessment is based on a strong basis.I have referred people whose regular ENTs (although good) haven\'t resolved their problems. I live in Austin so I travel every time to see Dr. Clark. I would stand on the assessment that he is the best ENT in Central Texas, and one of the best in Texas. But in addition to all that, as a compassionate and personal doctor, Dr. Clark excels in bedside manner. He truly is an exceptional asset to you hospital for all these reasons.

We want to commend Dr. Clark & assistants. Dr. Clark actually made us feel like he genuinely cared about our daughter.. that she\'s not just a number & trying to just run her through the daily "gates." He was very compassionate, extremely thorough in going through the process of tonsillectomy, etc.. This was one of our best experiences at Scott & White ENT area. we feel very confident in our daughter being well taken care of during this procedure, etc..
