Ratings for Dr. Donald Clark
While this doctor may not come across as being overly warm and fuzzy towards you, he is excellent at what he does and very thorough. With the issues I've come across with other doctors, I'll take a doctor that knows what he's doing and always has the best interest of his patient in mind any day and I don't care if he gives me a hug!
I keep getting the run around with this Dr. every time he tells me to call his office to re-book, and I call, the office is CLOSED!!! My GP keeps telling me it's urgent, I know it's urgent, because I'm in constant pain, yet I can't even get a hold of anyone in his office???
I had my surgery in July of 2015. After years of pain and infections being told by other doctors that I had this problem or it was something else. He had me in surgery in no time and thanks to him I feel great and like myself again. He explain everything to me and took great care of me. His bedside manner was great. He always had alot respect for me and my family. Am very grateful to have this doctor. Thank you Dr. Clark.
Incompetent,arrogant and full of himself.Both my mother and I nearly died in similar circumstances following C.T. requests by other doctors that were denied by Dr.Clark.Had the scans been ordered,abscesses would have been diagnosed immediately and treatment started.In both instances,my mother and I were transported by ambulance to Halifax where emergency surgery was performed.My mother ended up on life support and was hospitalized for 8 months.Her recovery took years and she never did fully recover.I spent an additional 4 weeks in hospital.I would never recommend this man to anyone based on my own personal experiences.
Dr Clark is a fantastic surgeon. He is straight to the point (perhaps why others described him as having poor bedside manners), knowledgeable, and explains things very well without talking down to you as some doctors are apt to do. He answered my many, many questions patiently and took his time to make sure I understood. His secretary was very friendly and accommodating as well. I have nothing but good things to say about Dr Clark!
Dr Clark was there when I need him the most. From my first appt to date of surgery, was only 6 weeks. Due to the seriousness of my condition, he moved my surgery date up to treat me. He was caring, compassionate and personable. I would not hesitate to see him again if I needed surgery.His secretary is professional and courteous as well. He was not arrogant as some have suggested, he asked me to call him by his first name! I feel I owe my life to Dr. Clark and will defend him to anyone.
Secretary was very rude. I had to call and re-book my appointment twice because I had to leave the country for work purposes and both times the secretary was rude and sounded like she was in a hurry. When I was finally able to make my appointment I found out it was cancelled an hour after waiting in the waiting area. After that appointment was rescheduled, the new date did not work for me due to a schedule conflict with work and when I explained this I was told my referral was going back to my family doctor and that I was unable to see Dr. Clarke. Basically she was unable to work with me to figure out what would work best for the patient. Now after waiting 6 months to see somebody it looks like I am in for another long wait.... I would not recommend this doctor solely based on the secretary.
