Jelunder Clark, MD
Primary Care and Family Medicine
Originally from Jackson, Mississippi, Dr. Clark attended Tougaloo College before transferring to the University of Southern Mississippi, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in biology. Upon graduation, she immediately began medical school at Howard University, where she received her doctor of medicine degree. Dr. Clark completed both her internship and residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Dr. Clark is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Medical Association, the National Medical Association, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
Having had a lifelong dream of becoming a physician, Dr. Clark chose family medicine as her specialty. ‘I had a desire to make a difference in others’ lives and to give them a better quality of life,” she explains. “I found family medicine appealing, because of the diversity of the patient population and the diversity of the field itself. You get to do just about everything.”
Dr. Clark focuses on the autonomic nervous system with a special interest in brain health. She performs autonomic nervous system testing, which examines physical and mental stress levels in the body. “I pay attention to people’s actions,” says Dr. Clark. “People act certain ways for a reason. An abnormal action isn’t necessarily tied to a mental disorder. Sometimes it could be an organic reason, which means a patient’s chemistry could be out of order or they might have a neurotransmitter imbalance. Discerning the reason is both fascinating and rewarding.”
In her spare time, Dr. Clark enjoys writing, singing, composing music, traveling, and public speaking.
