Or perhaps, caoraliecinq, you were literally asking how to read "2,300." In which case you would say "Two thousand three hundred" and NOT "Two thousand AND three hundred."

Out of context, the question is a bit unclear.  I think that you are trying to indicate an estimated number of clients - somewhere between 200 & 300, right?  If so, there is no comma.  Use the word "or" instead.  Depending on the context, the word "of" is a problem as well.  Off the top of my head, I cannot think of a sentence which uses "of clients" appropriately. 



She had two or three hundred clients on her list.


We estimate that two or three hundred of the company's clients were dissatisfied.
