Oracle Clob to XML

Dear Experts, I hope someone can help me. I am calling an Oracle Stored Procedure within a VB.Net app that returns an Oracle Clob. This works OK. However, the clob is actually an xml document and I would like to get this into an XML.Document within VB. Can anyone give me advice of how to do this (I cannot do a directcast to a xml.document)
Many thanks in advance for any help received

Here is some untested code:

Imports System.Text
Imports System.Xml

...

  Public Sub WriteXmlText(ByVal fileName As String, ByVal xmlText As String)

    Dim writer As New XmlTextWriter(fileName, Encoding.UTF8)
    Dim doc As New XmlDocument
    doc.LoadXml(xmlText)
    doc.WriteContentTo(writer)
    writer.Close()

  End Sub
