Farewell to Dr. Jennifer Clark

Dear Preferred Pediatrics Families,

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to care for your children over the past nine years. Therefore, it is bittersweet to share with you all that my family and I have made the difficult decision, for various personal reasons, to return to our home in Buffalo, NY. My last day in the office will be July 15, 2022.

I wish all of you continued health and happiness. I hope that we will be able to have the chance to say goodbye in person over the summer.

All My Best,

Dr. Jennifer Clark
PS - Go Bills!!!
