I personally worked for this wonderful man and was fired because of my disabilities. I could not preform my duties. It was the first time I was ever fired. He was right in his choice to fire me and I’m very thankful to him for even hiring me. It was a pleasure working with/for him. He is a very honorable man and awesome with his abilities and patients. God bless you Doc!

Doctor Clingan moves very fast in regards to surgery and at the beginning of my treatment plan, I’d maybe even say that he was a great surgeon who truly cared about my care and well being but after today’s appointment I’m not sure that I can say the same thing. Due to a procedure to get an emergency colostomy by Doctor Clingan I lost a job that I’d not been at very long. This caused me to lose insurance and have a one month gap in the time when new insurance would kick in. As a result, I missed

When I was first diagnosed with colo-rectal cancer, the anxiety and fears for my future and my family's future were great, and Dr. Clingan's office staff were amazing! They got me in to see Dr. Clingan, and ordered scans sooner than I expected. Within a short time I was in surgery, and Dr. Clingan called me personally to let me know of the results. At each stage, Dr. Clingan showed himself one of the most caring and professional physicians I've ever met. What an exceptional physician and clinic!

Best colon/rectal doctor in the Tulsa area. Is thorough and knowledgeable in his field. Without him my husband's cancer would have been overlooked. He has seen our family for 14 years. Would highly recommend him.

Dr. Clingan saved my life. I had a perforated colon and he did an emergency surgery on me and here I am. I could have died because I was toxic. I trust him with my life. He is also very nice and kind. He made me feel better because of his calming effect. I was scared to death and he calmed me down. This takes a very special Dr. to do this, and he was it! If you are looking for a excellent colon Dr. look no more. He is the best!! If I could give him 10 stars I would.

My appointment with Dr. Clingan was very pleasant. I was, of course, nervous due to my health issue, but he took all the nervousness away. He was very easy to understand, no long word doctor lingo, and to the point. He took the time to explain the options and which one sounded best for me, my questions were answered and the process began. I didn't need to schedul an urgent appointment, so the first quesiton on the survey for me is N/A.
