Dr. Clark literally saved my life with an emergency bowel resection."

a week ago

First, I would liked to clarify, I am a RN with 25+ years experience in ICU & ER settings. I have encountered Dr. Whalen Clark as a co-worker ,but MOST importantly as a patient. As a RN, I have worked with countless physicians. Some were good, some were not so good,, some were REALLY bad & I can definitely state that Dr Clark IS one of the GREAT ones! I had Hiatal hernia surgery by Dr. Clark & was privy to the true "patient experience". His bedside manner & calm demeanor is far moe exemplary than any other I've ever experienced! I already knew his strong work ethic & wide range of surgical abilities & knowledge, along with witnessing his interactions with patients, but when it's YOU in that bed awaiting surgery, you get a whole different perspective. He answered ALL my questions & diagramed out exactly what he would be doing. I was completely at ease before going to surgery. He came by to personally check on me more than once a day while I was in the hospital. I HAVE & will continue to recommend Dr. Whalen Clark for anyone's surgical needs. A few years after my "routine" Hiatal Hernia surgery, I had an emergent situation which landed me in TGH ER. Being on the weekend, Dr. Clark was on "on call" for his group. I'm told, by my family, that Dr. Clark came straight to the hospital, & lead his team through a long & difficult emergency surgery. He even came out & sat with my family in the waiting room & stayed with them until all their concerns were met. AND, Dr. Clark stayed at the hospital, on his weekend off, until I became stable. I'm sure he & his family had much more pleasant things & plans other than his being at TGH for multiple hours. It has been said "The good physician treats the disease; the GREAT physician treats the patient who has the disease". Dr. Whalen Clark has the medical expertise, knowledge & skill which he combines with his commanding ART of Medicine. He is truly one of the rare physicians who can & DO that today."

Dr. Clark is a kind, skilled surgeon. He was our guide when my father-in-law was going through colon cancer and needed surgery to remove the cancer. He took his time to answer all of our questions and has stayed in touch well after the surgery. He did a great job on not only removing the cancer but also ensuring that my FIL's recovery went well. He was also a great advocate when working alongside the other doctors to ensure my dad got the best care. I highly recommend Dr. Clark. He has excellent bed side manor and is a true pro at his craft."

Dr. Clark is extremely detail oriented and doesn't allow you to leave his office if you have any questions. He will stay with you in the room until all of your questions and concerns are addressed. His demeanor certainly makes the idea of surgery seem much less stressful. I appreciate all he has done for me and the kind compassionate care he has shown. Thank you, Dr. Clark."

After going to the Brandon ER with right side pain (gallstone pain) the ER advised me to follow up with my regular doctor, Dr. Vanessa Sarquis. Dr. Sarquis referred me to Dr. Colby Clark. Within one week I had an appointment with Dr. Clark. Within all this time I’m still in pain. After Dr. Clark saw my ultrasounds in his office he said this gallbladder needs to come out right away/it should have come out in the ER 9 days ago. He said this gallbladder is really inflamed and infected. At that appoinrment with Dr. Clark he made arrangements for me to have surgery in less than 24 hours at Advent Hospital by USF. With my being overweight and the gallbladder being so infected, Dr Clark said it would be a risky surgery but he wanted to do anyway. My surgery was sucessful!!! Dr .Clark wanted me to spend one night in the hospital for observation. I was sent home a little over 24 hours after surgery. Since surgery, I am improving a little bit everyday. Thank you, Dr. Clark for taking my pain away and putting me back together again. 😊"
