First visit, I felt very comfortable. Al my questions and concerns were addressed. He came highly recommended by my Endocrinologist, Dr. Pick. Dr. Pick was also highly recommended by Dr. Lacy Knight, personal friend and former coworker .

He is a good guy, however he rushes through the exam.....He acts like he will catch covid doing a check up, checking ears, mouth, touching glands etc.....it feels like something can be missed do to rushing.

pleasant and friendly, very thorough, covers a lot in the length of time in his office, any questions I have are answered near the end of the visit which works out good. I would highly recommend Dr. Clark to my friends.

I am not usually one who give a perfect score because that would mean there is no growth available, but Dr. Clark does get a 9 from me. He was straightforward but kind, thorough, and communicative. He took the time to ensure that I understood why he was doing what he was doing and why he was recommending what he was recommending. I did not feel as though he was just going through the paces.

He is personable, professional, very thorough but above all; caring. He has a calming demeanor that puts you at ease. He takes time with you. I never ever feel rushed. He makes sure any questions you have are answered and even asks if you have any other questions or concerns. I very highly recommend Dr. Clark.

Dr Clark is a credit to his professional and a credit to Northwestern Medicine. He is very patient, kind and helpful but most importantly listens to you. He explains every step he is taking during the exam and any treatments that may be needed.

The man is a great record keeper. Spends more time charting than talking and or asking me what I need. I have a scheduled out patient procedure today for which I was required to see Dr Clark for a pre-op physical. All he had to say, as he was walking out the door, "hope that helps you, see you in September for our next scheduled visit". my translation, see in a few months where we will charge your insurance and copay for more money for the corporation and my portion of the profit. nice gig if you can get it!

Doctors here are lacking bedside manor. Stop being so rude and dismissive. They should attempt working with and open communication with patients. Spend a little more time with and elucidate the patient Also recording their notes (what the patient says VERBATIM) in lieu of what the doctor has forgotten from the visit when they finally note the account. This is another huge issue. We have noticed many discrepancies in that respect as of late.

Dr Clark was the most efficient kind-hearted caring person/doctor that I have ever been in contact with he was considerate of my time he asked each and every question he explained every question that I asked the answer to he did a physical exam which most doctors do not do right now his demeanor was just awesome so I would recommend him as a primary care physician to anyone

External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
