Specialties

Dr. Allan W Clark has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Extremely good dr who understands the difficulties and trials so many patients face. Because he is walking along the same path as so many of his patients he is not judgemental and treats people like the human beings they are. Too many of the other doctors are only in this field to make extra money leaving real people helpless and hopeless when they need all the support and compassion to get better . .

The only doctor that's ever changed my life.

To whoever said Dr. Allen Clark is a "pervert"....you're wrong. This man is a genius in his field, he intentionally lightens the mood and controls the conversation in a way that makes any and all people feel comfortable opening up to him in a less filtered, more open and honest manner. In doing so, this allows him to find the seed of conflict in most all of his patients. He is patient, he is thorough, and he is dedicated to personally tailoring a recovery program specifically designed for each patient and that which best suits their long term recovery benefits. This man single handily changed my life when nobody else could. If not for his wisdom, time, attentive listening, advice, and treatment, I would still to this day be a junkie, eager to waste my life and disappoint the ones that love me most. Dr.Clark is influential in more ways than meets the eye, his personality welcomes people that usually feel judged or looked down upon, with open arms. Judge not, for one must first remove the plank from their own eye before they focus on the speck in another's. His staff, his cause, and his program, WORKS. No questions asked, I AM living proof of that. For those of you so quick to judge, why don't you see for yourself firsthand, the quality of the affect his demeanor, approach, and personality have. A.R.S...IS a pill farm. But South Hills Recovery Project....nah...they're a godsend to their patients, and the family's that love, and worry about the patients he treats. Thank you S.H.R.P for the influence you've had on my life!!
