Special Needs


Russell and Anne-Marie’s journey with their daughter, Annabel, who was born with Down syndrome in 2013, led them to a profound transformation in their lives. Motivated by their experience, they made a commitment to support and serve the special needs community in every possible way. Leveraging Russell’s extensive background as a registered nurse spanning over two decades, he pursued further education and obtained his degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner. This unique combination of expertise allows him to provide exceptional care and understanding to individuals with special needs and their families.

Russell’s comprehensive understanding of the unique needs and challenges faced by the special needs community has proven to be an invaluable asset throughout his career. From his role as an Emergency Department nurse to a provider in a clinic setting, as a hospitalist, and now as the owner and primary provider at Clark Family Practice, he brings a wealth of knowledge and compassion to his patients. His calm, caring, and friendly demeanor instills a sense of security in both patients and their families. They find solace in knowing that their loved ones are not only receiving quality care but are also genuinely understood and respected.

At Clark Family Practice, we prioritize the well-being and special requirements of individuals with special needs. Our dedicated team is committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate care, ensuring that every patient and their family receive the utmost support. Experience the difference that our understanding and personalized approach can make. Trust us to be your partner in care for your loved ones with special needs.

Anne-Marie served on the board of directors for the Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee (DSAMT) and received the 2015 Volunteer of the Year Award for the same organization. She is very active in the Down syndrome community and has put a lot of work into Clark Family Practice’s office support systems in order to best serve those with special needs.
