I was so sad to learn yesterday that my doctor, Dr. Paul Clark, had passed away unexpectedly on Thursday morning. He seemed like such a kind and caring man. I was wondering if anyone knew what caused his death, an accident, illness? It came as quite a shock to me. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

I appreciate any information you can offer.

I have heard that Dr Clark commiited suicide Thursday morning at the Pain Treatment Center. I hear that he was found by his co workers. Such a sad story. I can only imagine what the workers at that business are going through not to mention his family. Hope this was helpful.

OMG! I was so hoping it wasn't something like that. I know he had difficulties in the past, but I was hoping that he'd gotten beyond all that. How awful, not only for his poor family, but his coworkers as well. I can't even imagine what that must have been like for them to find him. My heart goes out to them, as well. This whole situation makes me incredibly sad. But thank you so much for taking the time to share what you know.

Yes, sadly I am. That does not surprise me in the least, I was very satisfied with him as my doctor. He was very personable and I felt that he really listened to me and understood my situation. It's not always easy to find a doctor that you feel that way about.

My appointment yesterday was with a nurse, so I did not find out until making my next appointment. The woman making it asked me if I had heard that he'd passed away the day before and that they would be assigning me to another doctor. I am still in shock and although professional, I could tell she was upset.

I find it so tragic that someone in the medical field who was in a field where he was helping so many, would lose their life so prematurely, especially if it was at his own hand.

I'm sure that his loss will be felt by many, far beyond those who were able to call him family and friend.

I had an appointment with Dr. Clark on Thursday and we had planned to scale back my meds. When I was taken back to the exam room they told me I would be seeing the p.a. I asked if I could make sure and see him next time and she just said no. Finally, at the end of my exam she told me he died of natural causes recently. This was April 4 and that's all I could find out. I asked some of the lab people and still got nothing more. I checked all the obits when I got home and could find nothing. He was a nice and caring man but I noticed over the past year that his weight was going up and down. No one mentioned anything about finding him at the office and not one word about him other than he passed away recently. The p a looked very tired and not her usual self. I'm sorry we lost such a nice doctor and he will be missed.

Does anyone know which method of suicide he used? Would hate to think of walking in unexpectedly on something like this. Prayers to the family.

you know how rumors are but I heard that he took his own life there at the clinic that's who found him. All the workers seem to all be close. It's a small facility. My heart goes out to them all.

It's none of your business how he passed away. If you were ment to know you would. Keep your noses out of his family's business please. They don't need this in their lives right now as well. Ridiculous how stupid you people can be!!!

Hey wow, why don't you take your own advice the next time you slow down or rubberneck at the scene of an accident or crime, or the next time you want to watch some OJ or Jodi Arias trial or any other public arena of someone else's personal affairs. Everyone has curiosity about these types of things, and I don't believe these people are asking out of disrespect.

That is not stupidity,its human nature to want to know. Sounds like you have a problem,you must hate the world. Try to pray about hating your fellow man so much.

I love the world, I just don't get enjoyment out of others misery. The only time I slow down at wrecks is to save lives. I am a nurse. I see these things everyday. I would like to not know what happened to these people. When you do know, it changes your life. Say you did know what haoppened to this doctor. How would this change you life at all??? It wouldn't......Sure, I hate the world, thats why I care for people for a living, they are not the stupid ones, you are. Give Dr. Clark some respect and quit talking about it!

If you hate people, maybe you should become and undertaker. It might serve as an example to someone's family member.

I'm really glad you aren't my nurse, what a ridiculous attitude. Knowing what happened changes lives all the time - you said so yourself (right before you said that it wouldn't). People need to understand things that appear senseless. Maybe knowing more about a tragic event can help someone avoid the same things in their own life, maybe with a little knowledge they can spot similar trouble with loved ones and prevent further loss of life. There are many reasons why understanding is important and none of them are disrespectful. Please don't degrade others by assuming anyone is getting "enjoyment" from any of this.

Dr. Clark was a kind and wonderful man who helped many, many people. I only wish someone had been able to help him with whatever he was dealing with. This was shocking news and he will be greatly missed; my heart goes out to his family and friends.

Thank you. I couldn't agree more. The idea that someone would assume that I was asking for entertainment value, gossip fodder or idle curiousity is just sick, not to mention an unfair assumption. I would have hoped that someone reading my initial post would realize that I had deep respect for this man. I felt that I needed to understand what happened because it was so unexpected. I quite literally was reeling in shock. I was asking because although I was not close to him, I knew him to be a kind and caring doctor that had made a difference in my life and I cared about him as a person. I was hoping to have closure of sorts if I could understand what happened. There was no disrespect intended in any way, he had nothing but my highest esteem as both a person and a doctor. It's also obvious from this thread that I am not the only one who felt this way.
