I have the Dr my symptoms and she checked me put, said everything was good and sent me on my way with in a matter of minutes. I couldn't even hear from my right ear, my glands were swollen and I couldn't even breathe from my nose. It was a waste of money to even walk into the office if she didn't even take the time to help me or provide me with any medication to help me, I obviously was not "all good"

Dr. Clark is always very caring and I have recommended her to friends. She is very competent and we trust that she looks out for our health. Dr. Clark does allocate adequate time to cover key issues. However, it does seem that the Dallas practice is on a tight, limited schedule due to not enough physicians.

Dr. Clark has always been someone I trusted, seemed knowledgeable, and caring. I never feel rushed. However, I do not like the process I must go through to see her. It has become tedious and inefficient. This last visit was unlike others, but overall I have stayed because I like and trust her. It is getting harder to do that.
Dec 24, 2016
Clark do was very nice. I like it when she comes from Dallas to kingston

I'm the type of person who doesn't go to the doctor unless it's absolutely necessary. I want a doctor who gives me some time. I always feel like I'm being rushed. She does not explain her prognosis or any type of treatment - just wanted to schedule an MRI. All she is concerned about is scheduling tests. I went for a problem and all she wanted to talk about was getting after shot, scheduling a mammogram. Yearly blood work etc. Never fully addressed the problem I was having. I am definitely looking for another doctor because this isn't the first time I experienced this. I have been with Geisinger for 30 years and have seen a lot of changes over the years!!

I was never informed that an antibiotics was prescribed for me. I had no idea that the prescription was waiting for me at the pharmacy at the clinic. My wife had to drive back to get the prescription. I was never informed that I was prescribed any medication until I was home and checked My Geisinger.
Dec 1, 2016
Not friendly at all...left the room without saying, "any questions, "good-bye" or anything at all. I had to ask the nurse if the doctor was coming back. She said "no"... this is a terrible way to treat "anyone" even if I am a senior citizen and she probably has no interest in treating me.
Nov 18, 2016
Dr. Clark is always attentive and great to deal with
Nov 17, 2016
Dr Brezinski- Clark is very thorough and efficient in diagnosing/ treating my symptoms . provides excellent, professional care
Nov 10, 2016
I had a good experience with this visit and any visit that I have with Deserie and Dr. Clark.
Nov 7, 2016
The one thing that I like about Dr. Brzezinski Clark is her availability for appointments. I can get appointments with her in a reasonable time frame and she is good at directing me to the appropriate specialist when needed.
Nov 3, 2016
The suggestion the doctor made regarding the best time of day to take my medication proved to be very helpful.
Oct 28, 2016
Always very pleasant and took time with you and never in a hurry with visit. Answer any questions I may have.
Oct 27, 2016
My concern for my knee was not discussed much beyond getting an x-ray or follow-up. I will be contacting the dr. for more info. Dr. Clark was wonderful though w/our conversation, getting to know me and developing connections.
Oct 27, 2016
Very happy with my physician and her staff
Oct 22, 2016
good
Oct 19, 2016
Somehow, I didn't get tested for Insulin or Ferritin levels, which I was extremely concerned about. I also was not given a follow-up appointment. That's ok, though, because I never know when I can get a ride to the clinic, so when I know, I can make the appointment myself.
Oct 18, 2016
I believe Dr. Clark's hands are tied to provide me with a limited amount of care due to the Payment issues I am having with the secondary pay or and Medicare. I believe Dr. Clark is precluded from providing follow up care suggestions because of claim inaccuracies.
Oct 18, 2016
I was scheduled for an annual exam. Once I mentioned one acute complaint/concern I had, no other medical concerns were addressed. The only focus was the one concern I was able to verbalize. No other questions/ROS were asked of me. Exam was very limited. My major complaint was GI issues. The provider barely inspected my abdomen. Did a brief palpation over cloths. When she palpated my lower abdomen I said it was a little sore. She went right to the computer and that was the end of my exam. Very poor for an annual exam or acute exam for that matter.
Oct 17, 2016
Although this was just a wellness visit, it appeared Dr Clark had no time. She was teaching a (I believe) nurse practicioner who spent much more time with me.
Oct 6, 2016
After this experience, I have actually told at least 5 people already that I would never recommend her as a physician. Beside manner is unacceptable - more concerned about gossip than my problem
Sep 30, 2016
Question 2, wasn't seen for problem or condition. Question 6, no follow-up care was discussed.
Sep 1, 2016
This was my first visit and I'm not sure I will return in the 3 months she said. I really don't like to judge anyone by visiting them only once but the doctor was really not a bit friendly and usually just looked at the computer & I don't really remember her ever looking directly at me to discuss anything.
Sep 1, 2016
DR Kara B. Clark is WONDERFUL TAKES THE TIME TO LISTEN AND TO DISCUSS HEALTH ISSUES . KIND CONSIDERATE AND KNOWLEDGEABLE and PATIENT AS WELL ANSEWERED ALL MY CONCERNS AND CALLED TO CONFIRM ME AS WELL
Aug 30, 2016
Most individuals I know already have a dr. If situation comes up, I would suggest her.
Aug 29, 2016
No communication about the different paths of care that would depend upon initial blood work.
Aug 8, 2016
I feel like I am supposed to know what to do but I do not. It is hard to talk to my DR. so I just talk to who ever answers the phone.
Aug 4, 2016
Dr Kara Clark has done all the things above ... at a 10 rate, not a 5. She is so pleasant, listens , talks with you, takes care of your current medical issue and really makes sure you get the Best care possible. Every issue I have had to see Dr Clark she has taken care of. Dr Kara Clark is a Exceptional Doctor. Thank you.
Aug 2, 2016
i always recommend Geisinger and my doctor.
Aug 1, 2016
Had blood work before apt but provider did not look at results until I mentioned & then did not address. I have had several medical issues since last yr & was never asked how I made out. Dr seemed in a hurry
Jul 28, 2016
waited 30 min in exam room to spend 5 min with provider. this visit was 6 mon visit and only discussed 1 topic that was not part of the purpose of the visit. wanted to make up time and was very short. need to look for a new pcp
Jul 26, 2016
This provider never gives me a chance to ask follow up questions and rushes me out of the office without explaining follow up. I was sent for blood work and an ultrasound, and I have no idea what the next steps are. I was given no advice for dealing with the issues in the interim while waiting for these tests. This lack of communication has happened both times I have seen this doctor, so I am considering finding a new primary doctor. No medications were discussed.
Jul 25, 2016
Last 2 visits I asked for a prostate check & was told it wasn't need even though I'm 62 years old?? Also I had to ask to have blood work ordered to check my liver (I'm on cholesterol meds).
Jul 25, 2016
Dr. Clark used to be compassionate she is no longer friendly or thorough. Like she is trying to rush seemed unconcerned. Gave her a list of problems and she blew off most of them. I'm looking else where.
Jul 19, 2016
I was very thankful Dr. Kara made a point to see me
Jul 19, 2016
Dr didn't listen thoroughly to problem presented offered rude comments...prescribed a pill and sent me on my way...sought a second opinion dr agreed with what I thought issue was said do not take the meds prescribed due to them being unnecessary
Jul 14, 2016
no medications discussed
Jul 8, 2016
very professional; sensitive to patient needs; excellent physician
June 30, 2016
This was my first visit with this doctor. I was very impressed!!!
June 28, 2016
When checking out, remembered a conclusion was not suggested for a health issue. check out associate stated would have Dr. Call me in regards, has been 7 days and have not had contact. Needed appt. with orthopedic, it was stated that the department would call me to schedule appt. 7 days and no communication--day 8 I called myself and have to wait 3 weeks for an appointment.
June 24, 2016
I have been going there since I was a small child and everytime I visit it seems Im being rushed thru and dismissed .... The nursing staff is helpful and nice - I dont know if the doctor was having a bad day or what but it wasnt my fault!! I trust a doctor to listen to me not brush me off and try to send me to a shrink!!! I have anxiety attacks not a mental problem!!!
June 24, 2016
Because of the 10 year period in which I was not really given anything to relieve my pain, and any steroid, or drug in the _____ family that will stop the intestinal spasms I am leaving my dr.!
June 17, 2016
terrible experience
June 15, 2016
we have met many times. and she said nice to meet you.
June 15, 2016
There is no problem with the physician other than timeliness for this appointment.
June 14, 2016
Dr. Clark was rushed the entire appointment. She did not ask permission to come in the room. She did not listen to my entire explanation and kept cutting me off. She talked about her own personal non-work related business while performing a very invasive test and acted as if I was not even there. I felt demoralized. This is the second time this has happened and I will be changing doctors.
May 5, 2016
I was nervous about switching my PCP. But I am so glad I did Dr Clark couldn't be any nicer or knowledgeable.
May 5, 2016
Dr. Clark - was a wonderful doctor - Took all the time I needed.
May 2, 2016
less the 10 minutes with the dr and was rushed out
Apr 26, 2016
Dr Clark is a great Doctor, knowledgeable and listens and helps your needa.
Apr 20, 2016
over all pleasant experience! thank you!
Apr 5, 2016
I had never been seen by Doctor Clark before, but was very pleased with her!
March 31, 2016
I waited 50 minutes to see her & I got less than 10- unacceptable- she was 50 minutes backed up @ 9AM.
March 29, 2016
Dr. Clarke is an excellent doctor and I have a lot of confidence in her care.
March 9, 2016
Frustrated and my BP showed it. Because my chart was not updated when it should have been, the DR read my blood results and wanted to double my meds. She was under the impression that I was taking the cholesteral meds from Nov. Why my chart was not updated to show the drug reaction and the DR's instruction to go to ER after taking the "first pill" were not put into my chart until this March visit caused me concern. Because of my allergies, I questioned the Dr on any natural ways that I could use. I asked her about "alternatives" such as using supplements and what mg I should use. She finally agreed my high cholesterol could be hereditary. She told me to schedule a fasting blood work in 3 months to check my levels.
March 9, 2016
Very happy with Dr. Clark and her nursing assistant.
March 8, 2016
Provider seemed to want to immediately refer me to another dept instead of exploring alternative treatments.
March 7, 2016
I can't say enough about Dr . Kara Brezinski -Clark She has my back even before I think of the questions and rides herd on me when I slip up on my meds. and will make a referral if I have a concern. Besides she is a great person and physician. very insightful. Sharp.
March 1, 2016
again, wellness visit, no problems
March 1, 2016
I feel my husband's doctor is more informative. Considering making a switch to him.
