1st visit--he came in the room, refused to speak or even acknowledge my presence. He was aggressive, rude, and just plain ignorant. I was actually in more pain after he aggressively examined my deformed foot. My friend has good insurance and he treated her ok. I have Medicaid which, apparently, doesn't pay him enough and gives him license to treat you and make you feel less than. I will NEVER recommend him; in fact, quite the contrary. He should not be allowed to interact with human beings.

No one could figure out why i couldn't walk after having ankle surgery for a serious break and they treated me like i was crazy sending me to a pain clinic were a very cruel doctor refused to listen to me and tried to put me on nerve drugs telling me i had chronic reoccurring pain syndrome. Went to Flemester and immediately he and his assistant knew what was wrong. He did achilles tendon surgery and removed scar tissue . less than a year later i walk again pretty much pain free.

I have RA,my rheumatologist refers me to flemister, he was very rude, cold, and actually threw his hands up pushed his chair back and basically didn't want to deal with me! I hope I caught him on a bad day or something but that doesn't excuse his actions that was my first and last appointment with him! Oh yeah he did send me for an MRI and I don't have enough characters to tell you all that is wrong but I hope he feels like ??

I was refer to Dr. Flemister in 2005 for a very severe and painful flat foot ( severely pronated right foot condition ) Dr. Flemister prescribed that I undergo and foot reconstruction and repair of my (rt) foot wherein also he would form an arch on the bottom of my foot which would help in the development and the continual usage of my foot. The procedure was successful and after my incapacitated period with cast & walking boot and extensive physical therapy for rehabilitation. Results SUPER !
