Dr Clark is by far the best provider that I have ever come across. My family has been seeing him for 8 years now and I couldn\'t imagine going anywhere else. He is kind, informative, caring and just overall everything that you\'d like in a provider. My daughter refuses to see any other Dr but him! I really just can\'t say enough great things about him.

Dr Clark is THE best provider there is. I couldn\'t imagine my children seeing any other provider. He has never been wrong about any diagnoses and always tries the least invasive treatments possible before jumping head on in to major treatment. My children absolutely adore him.

Dr. Clark is phenomenal with children. His clinical acumen is great, but his ability to connect with children is the best I have seen. My boys actually love seeing him and the "going to the doctor" is not the least bit scary for them, which is a testament to Dr. Clark\'s amazing interpersonal skills. Bonus: He is a competent physician.

Dr. Clark was the absolute most caring provider we have met in Waco. He was professional, understanding, and showed that he truly CARED about our baby\'s health and her individual journey - not a system. He is a blessing!! We are recommending Dr Clark to all of our friends.

We started using Dr. Samuel Clark with our first born child in 2014. Back then, the entire office was extremely tenative and genuinely cared about the patients. We loved this office and provider. Its seems that in the past 2-3 years, something is changed...more than liikely the way thigs are run by Baylor S&W as a whole, as the hospital seems to have the same changes. For our last allointment, which was just a child wellnes check and one vaccine booster, we moved from the waiting room to the exam room on time. We waited on the doctor for 45 minutes, which is completely ridiculous. I have a 2 and 4 year old and had them both with me. Waiting in a room that long is not professional. And, we had to wait again for 10-15 minutes after the dr visit to wait on the nurse to bring the one vaccine. This has happened the past 5-6 times we\'ve visited and it\'s honestly mademe want to find a new provider...and facility.
