Name: Casey Clark, FNP-C
Role at Avance: Family Nurse Practitioner – Knightdale
Years at Avance Care: Less than one
My first job: Carpet cleaning and taking pictures for Santa at the mall!
Why primary care: Primary care is the unique opportunity to care for all ages, situations, and needs.
Why I love Avance Care: I love the relaxed environment, that every clinic seems like a family, and the increased access patients have to care.
If I wasn’t a primary care provider I would be: A handyman! I love working with my hands
My favorite part of medicine is: Hearing the stories of how people’s lives have been changed because of holistic care.
If someone wanted to start a conversation with me, they should ask me about: My wife and kids or my seminary education.
How I connect to patients: I love finding areas of common interest and laughing about life.
The one piece of medical advice I tell my patients but have a difficult time incorporating into my own life: Exercise, guilty as charged. I know its benefits but utilize it far too little.
If I have a three day weekend, I can be found: Enjoying time with my wife and kids, at church, enjoying being outside, or studying.
The four people I would invite to my ultimate dinner party: Anybody with great stories! How about John MacArthur, John Piper, Paul McCartney, and Bill Gates. Deep discussion and insight from the Johns, great music from Paul, and fantastic philanthropy stories from Bill!
