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.

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 29
No communication about the different paths of care that would depend upon initial blood work.
Aug 8
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
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.

i always recommend Geisinger and my doctor.

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
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
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
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
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
I was very thankful Dr. Kara made a point to see me
Jul 19
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

This was my first visit with this doctor. I was very impressed!!!
June 28
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
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 17
terrible experience
June 15
we have met many times. and she said nice to meet you.
June 15
There is no problem with the physician other than timeliness for this appointment.
June 14
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
I was nervous about switching my PCP. But I am so glad I did Dr Clark couldn't be any nicer or knowledgeable.

I had never been seen by Doctor Clark before, but was very pleased with her!
March 31
I waited 50 minutes to see her & I got less than 10- unacceptable- she was 50 minutes backed up @ 9AM.
March 29
Dr. Clarke is an excellent doctor and I have a lot of confidence in her care.
March 9
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
Very happy with Dr. Clark and her nursing assistant.
March 8
Provider seemed to want to immediately refer me to another dept instead of exploring alternative treatments.
March 7
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
I feel my husband's doctor is more informative. Considering making a switch to him.

again, wellness visit, no problems

Dr Clark is AWESOME

This was a first visit- very brief; I didn't have a condition at the time, though have since called with what might me and have not been able to schedule an appointment with my doctor so am seeing a resident.
Feb 25
Excellent!

I have recommended Dr. Brezinski Clark to everyone in my family. We all love her. She is kind-hearted and very smart. She is great at explaining things, and shows interest in whatever I'm going through. She is just a great human being.

Care provider was friendly & acted in a very professional manner.

my appo. was with Rouslan Toursev DO

When I first went to the doctor after moving into the area, she suggested a bone density test which I have not had and told her so. I suffer moderate to really bad pain from time to time and the usual answer is to take tyleno (sp) which I have told her as well as my previous doctors does NOT work for me. That is the reason I keep using the generic valium as it does ease the pain. I am allergic to coedine. She said no to aspirin, aleve, advil, etc as other drs have done. I went into this visit with things written down to review but when she learned that I had stopped taking calcuim and vitamin D, I was hurried over to the lab for blood drawing and urine test and that was it. Did not see the dr after that. Then the follow up to the test results were not worth the paper printed on. Those letters such as BUN have no meaning. The urine test only used figures. If she wants me to take vitamins, tell me the strength to use. I really would like to stick with meds that I know work and I am very much aware about interactions, etc. I am not a child.

Dr Clark is a doctor and a good friend.

Pleasant experience
Dec 29, 2015
Appt. was the 29th of Dec. I discussed 2 issues that needed some follow of tests. I was told appts would be made. Today is 1-11-15, I have never heard back from the office or testing centers.
Dec 18, 2015
I felt rushed by the provider. I had to bring up an issue I was having so the provider could discuss it with me.
Dec 3, 2015
all my medical records in the computer for my last visit were incorrect. i printed it, highlighted it and explained to her that it must be someone elses records. she did correct them while i was there. but no one listens to the patients in that office.
Nov 17, 2015
DR BREZINSKI CLARK IS AWESOME!!!!!!!SO KIND VERY INFORMATIVE , REVIEWED MY HEALTH CONCERNS, AND VERY RESPECTFUL, TOOK THE TIME TO SPEAK TO ME ABOUT MY CARE I WAS NOT RUSHED OUT
Nov 16, 2015

Nov 12, 2015
This experience was awful.My appointment with Dr.Clark was one of the worst appointments that I have every dealt with at this office. It was my first appointment as an 18 year old to get pap smear. I was told my the nurses and others that this was a good to decision and a good way to get a check up for myself now that I'm an adult. Dr. Clark was so rude in explaining to me what a pap smear actually was even though I knew and she told me that I am not suppose to get one until I'm 23 years old. She told me I had wasted my time in coming in and told me to get dressed and leave. I was very upset that she wasted my time and was inconsiderate and impersonal.
Nov 9, 2015
Dr. Clark is very caring and shows a high degree of professionalism.
Nov 5, 2015
No one really listens or else it would be better. Its rush, rush, rush. Guess we can blame... program, d_____ him. Our former dr. was so much better we got spoiled.
Oct 29, 2015
Really appreciate the throughness and professional demeanor exhibited by Dr Clark and nursing staff.
Oct 28, 2015
she also took the time to discuss my daughter's recent health issues with me. i greatly appreciated that input.
Oct 27, 2015
Good experience. This was my first visit with her .
Oct 26, 2015
I was very satisfied.
Oct 7, 2015
Dr. Clark is a very caring, professional and thorough care giver.

You could use a "not applicable" column for this section. How should I rate the "if any" questions if there weren't any? Also, Numbers 2 and 4 above are not applicable--I was there for a new patient visit. I gave a low score for clarity about follow-up care because I was referred to another doctor, and told that the check out area would set up the appointment for me. At check out, I paid my co-pay, and then was called to the lab for blood work. I left assuming that I would get a phone call about the referral, but I have had no follow up from the clinic about how to make this appointment. I am very confused and will have to get back in touch with the office to follow up about this.

Great - they deserve more than five.
