I haven't seen Dr. Fleming in almost 2 months. But, seeing as how I am still alive and able to write this, I guess he's doing a pretty bang up job. After I see him next time, ask me again.

Review for Dr. Fleming

Dr. Alberico is always very patient and kind with me. I am naturally nosy and he explains things well. He is determined to keep me going as long as possible, not an easy thing. This group has gotten me through to my fourth new cancer, and I am grateful.

Review for Dr. Alberico

I came to this office nervous, scared not knowing what to expect. I heard about Dr. Alberico that he was a great doctor and really good guy. I have since found out for my self that it was all true. His care is why I am still here. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Michael Lee and his team is the best!! He and his PA spend as much time with you as you need. He asks you questions, listens to you. I really appreciate him.

Review for Dr. Lee

I have already many times. I have been a patient of Dr Alberico for 26 years and would not consider changing to another provider. He and his entire staff are exceptional in every aspect.
