When reaching out to our office, you'll likely connect with Heather our multitasking professional serving as the manager, receptionist, nurse, cleaning lady and the doctor's wife. While we currently run a very small clinic, as we grow we aspire to welcome additional loving and dedicated staff to serve you. On a busier day you may see our son helping out. Honestly he'd rather be doing yard work for people but he gets drafted. Heather graduated in 1999 from Liberty University with her Bachelor's of Science of Nursing. She used those skills full time until their third child joined the family and Dr. Clark started residency. She has returned to work temporarily, balancing responsibilities with 2 kids in home school along with two in college. She couldn't be more proud of them. Heather also loves gardening and all the beautiful things that grow in Florida.
