 Dr. Clark Reviews

1

The care and kindness of Dr Clark and staff toward my parents is unheralded and unfortunately not seen anywhere else. They both suffer from dementia but are treated with the dignity and personal card that they deserve.

A recent encounter has renewed my appreciation for kindness in mankind.
Do to a recent snowstorm, I was stuck in my car by the side of the road for hrs. I have never been so cold to the core.
Of course, no vehicle stopped to help.
A doctor wearing a white coat under his overcoat, apparently leaving the hospital, stopped and gave me a protein bar, a bottle of water, even his gloves.
I saw his embroidered name , Francis Clark.
By deflating my tires a bit and using torn pieces of a box under my tire, he was able to push my car out of an ice gulley. He than followed me safely home.
Thank you to this kind Samaritan.

My recent hospital stay at a local hospital was not a pleasant experience. The lack of compassion by nurses and doctors was a common trend. The care rendered by Dr Clark was the only interaction that was a pleasure. His total dedication and compassion was a welcome difference from the culture of the entire staff.

Dr Frances Clark was recommended by several of my neighbors in my community and I had a great experience.
Dr Clark is very knowledgeable about all the new technologies in cataract surgery and artificial lens implants.
He makes you feel comfortable and establishes a great rapport.
He performed my second cataract surgery and it was a great success.
The front desk could be more friendly and embracing... the only negative.

I am a surgical nurse and did extensive research to pick the cataract surgeon for my parents. Both were recently performed at the Blue Bell Surgery Center by Dr Francis Clark. The staff in the office and center were outstanding. I can appreciate a surgeon who is very skilled and competent yet conservative, non pushy, patient, compassionate.

I recently had a wonderful experience with a new eye doctor that i wanted to share with everyone. I think I have become his biggest fan. I was seen by 2 pevious eye surgeons both who told me I needed cataract surgery immediately. Why? I don't know as I see well. I can even read without glasses.Both my priest and Family Doctor suggeted I see Dr. Clark. Thank God! Not only DO I NOT NEED SURGERY, but Dr.Clark gave me new glasses just for driving that allows me to see 20-20. I don't need glasses for reading after all. He is the best!

  • This was the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor visit. First of all I saw the NP Amber , she made me feel like I was a bother to her . As I sat in the chair she told me to stand and pull my pants down then she took three steps back and bent over to pretend to look at the affected area, which made me feel like she didn't want to be near me. I said pretend to looks at because there was no way she could have seen the problem from that position. Then she talked with the nurse to tell he...

  • On 1/24/18 my mother had an elective heart valve repair, the surgery went very wrong, what should have taken four hours took nearly ten hours and my mother needed 22 pints of blood. She was intubated for nine days and sedated. They attempted to wake her up and could not do so. They inserted a trachea in the ICU where she lay in a coma like state for 50+ days, she had three seizures and the auto blood pressure cuff burst open her arm artery. This took an additional two surgeries to repair. A...
