Dr. Cleek performed my hernia surgery, which was a very complicated and rare one. He and his staff did an exceptional job!! Three months down the line, I'm doing awesome! Dr. Cleek is a first rate surgeon, which is why he has been a head surgeon at Enloe for over three decades. You can trust he and his staff completely to take care of you and yours. Sincerely, Rev. Todd DuBord (former Chaplain for Chuck Norris and present Pastor at Mt. Lassen Community Church in Lake Almanor)

Thus guys job was to save my life, which he did with a polished skill and empathy that I stand in respect of. He's trama so scheduling etc has no meaning here. Chico is lucky to have him, and I can only say thank you.

Horrible experience. Have seen him a total of two minutes since he performed surgery. He has not listened to me about the pain and complications I am experiencing. I am currently looking into how to get a second opinion. I am worried that something is extremely wrong, the pain level, and type of pain, is worst then he had said it should be, and has hurt 4 times longer so far, then he said it should. I feel like he doesn't want to admit he could of made a mistake. He is a butcher,horrible surgeon
