The Plumbing Doc

Company Mission Statement:

“To provide high quality service to our customers for a reasonable price, while giving a positive perspective of our company to the public and maintaining our profits and potential for future growth”.

Plumbing Doc is owned by Rick Clemmons. Rick was born in Arlington California in 1959 and moved to Bakersfield in 1964. He was raised right here in Kern County and through the years has developed many strong friendships and ties in our community. He graduated high school in 1976 and enlisted in the United States Air Force. After being honorably discharged he joined the Kern County Fire Department where he performed duties out of Keene, California as a seasonal fireman (hot shot crew member). At the end of the fire season after leaving the fire department he attended college both in Texas and then back here at Bakersfield College studying everything from Mathematics to Diesel Mechanics and Welding. He enrolled in the apprenticeship program for the Operating Engineers Local #12 with a dual apprenticeship both as a Heavy equipment operator and as a Diesel Mechanic/Welder. He graduated from this dual program with a Dorothy Donahue award as the top graduating apprentice in the AFL/CIO in California and Nevada.

He started “The Plumbing Doc” in 2004 with two trucks and basic tools and through hard work and customer satisfaction it has grown to become the company it is today. Those early days were tough but Rick hung on based on positive word of mouth. The company always showed up on time, performed high quality work at reasonable prices, and was honest and sincere! He rightfully earned a reputation for being one of the best Bakersfield Plumbers. The rest, as they say, is history.
