Have you seen Dr. Eric Clarke?
Stays up to date on latest techniques
Posted on October 28th, 2016
I feel blessed that he was on call the evening I came into PRMC with a nasty ankle fracture. He was informative, caring, prompt, and used a surgical technique to minimize future arthritis. I liked the fact how stern he was with his post op instructions. My advice to other pts... BE COMPLAINT and patient. It will be rewarding. On my last f/u visit after the surgery, 10 wks of non weight bearing, and rehab...hearing the words, "It takes 2 to tango" was awesome! Due to the severity of the fracture, he could not believe that I was "limp free" at 10wks post op. He truly wants the best outcome for his pts. He is not a Dr who performs unnessary surgeries or medications. He stays up to date in his expertise to give the best patient the best possible outcome. Highly recommend!

There was nothing i didnt like about Dr. Clarke! I just has surgery with him yesterday afternoon for cubital tunnel syndrome and im just now at 4:47 am getting hit with a little pain not to bad i must say it hurt real bad after surgery bc of the initial incision the gave me pain meds after surgery fir that pain also whike under he gave me a block which blocked the oain for twelve hours. I see him at his office in athens TN was referred to him by the voytik center in Cleveland which i am very thankful that dr. Voytik was a horrible doctor and passed me on to Dr.Clarke the voytik center was awful and did not help me Dr. Voytik himself didnt spend but 3 min in the room talking to me. So i was sent to Dr. Clarke and he listened to everything i had to say done multiple things to figure the problem at and we both decided surgery was best. Now as i went for surgery his nurses were very sweet very concerned with pain levels and with making me comfortable. I also want to add that my husband prayed with me before surgery and in the operating room i asked Dr. Clarke if he an his nurses with pray with me and they did i have never seen this haooen before or ever heard of it. He is a great Dr. I would recommend him to anyone. He also cares for each of his patients and doesn't look at you just as a number or dollar signs i do have tenn care and the voytik center treated me like crap and tokd me i needed to wait foe it that cubital tunnel usually clears uo within a month but the problem was i had been dealing with this for 8. I guess the voytik center doesn't care about their patients and i have heard numerous bad things but Dr. Clarke is the best. I highly recommend him and his staff to anyone having problems he deffinetly knows his stuff. Thank you so much Dr. Clarke
DR CLARKE IS...AWESOME!! KNOWLEDGEABLE!!! BRILLIANT!!!

Dr. Clarke performed a rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder in 2006. That surgery went extremely well & I have had no other problems with it. In 2009, he treated my then 17 year old daughterâs ankle after an injury in her high schoolâs gym. Today, she is a senior in college, an athlete & an avid runner so her surgery was a success as well. Itâs June, 2013 & after a recent emergency room visit, I have been diagnosed with an ankle and knee injury & referred to an orthopedic doctor. I was given another name but I immediately told my primary care physician that I will see no one other than Dr. Clarke because I am familiar with him & because I have the utmost confidence in his treatment. Iâd lost contact with Dr. Clarke since my daughterâs treatment but I found him online today & I will be calling him TODAY to schedule an appointment. He is awesome!

We have great appreciation and respect for Dr. Eric Clarke. We very much appreciate his expertise. His is well read and keeps current. After careful assessment of different shoulder problems, he has recommended physical therapy, which took care of the problems. We recommend him highly. He is our first choice for orthopedic issues.

Dr Clarke has a wonderful bedside manner. He performed ORIF on my right ankle during a particularly difficult time in my life as I had just lost my mother very suddenly and unexpectedly. Before surgery, he prayed with me after I initiated the conversation that many people were praying for God to guide him during the surgery. I was very calm and less anxious after that. He is not only a skilled surgeon but a compassionate one and I would recommend him to anyone.
Patient and father of patients

Our daughter had knee surgery and Dr. Clarke made several visits to our house following the surgery just to check up on her. She has since called him about other issues when she has been out of town and not near a doctor. He has always made himself available to her as well as our other daughter who also plays sports. I have been to see him as well (we are all into various sports). He loves getting people back out there and will do whatever it takes to help but is also sensitive to people's finances. We had to go to another orthopedic doctor in town once when Dr. Clarke was out of town and came to realize how spoiled we were. We feel very fortunate to have the expertise of someone who has worked on professional athletes so available to us. I strongly encourage anyone to go to him first and feel strongly that you will not be disappointed.
