Dr. Clark has been very genuine and authentic with us. I really appreciate his honesty in talking with us about being new parents and helping us get on the right track with our daughter. We were looking for a provider that was laid back but still practicing great/high quality medicine with a caring and empathetic attitude and we've found that with Dr. Clark! Very happy so far!

Dr. Clarke has taken excellent care I have all three of my children while living here for the past two years. We are extremely grateful for his superior knowledge base, pleasant demeanor, and ability to make my children laugh even when they have to have a shot. He's a wonderful pediatrician and truly a blessing to the Baylor Scott And White system. We will miss having him as our doctor as we are relocating to Virginia. Thank you so much for such excellent care over the past two years !

We have been especially grateful to Dr. Clark's expertise, tremendous knowledge base, and humorous comforting demeanor when my children are sick he is able to comfort them and make them feel better and even laugh.

it is very difficult to get an appointment for an illness or something that needs immediate care. Dr. Clark is very good to treat us as a whole family unit as well as individual concern and thoroughness. He is a wonderful physician and would recommend him to anyone. The schedulers and receptionists are less helpful to convenience and while family well being. I have 5 children and if one is sick they have the potential to spread it to their siblings. I had one son with a well child visit, but an older son with an asthma question or concern. I feel comfortable to ask Dr. Clark about sibling concerns and he would still show attention to the well child and my concern even if I couldn't get an appointment for a question. He is very family oriented.
