From entering the appointment to exiting the office, it was obvious that Dr. Fleming wished for optimal patient experience. He answered any questions that I had prior and even put on music that made me feel most comfortable! The procedure was performed with ease and once finished, Dr. Fleming followed up with me to make sure my healing process was as smooth as possible. He is a phenomenal doctor and I would give more stars if I could!

From start to finish, my surgery with Dr. Fleming was everything you would desire when facing a medical procedure. His explanations were thorough, he took his time and answered all questions, the procedure was flawless, and his follow up care was beyond expectations. Dr. Fleming is definitely the one to choose!!

Dr. Fleming was very thorough. Explained everything in detail. No sense of being rushed. The office followed up by Text and phone after the initial visit to make sure everything was going OK and if I had any questions. Office visit was very smooth didn't have to wait long (like I have experienced at other doctors)

How was your experience with Dr. Fleming Jr?

About Me

Keeping the patient at the center of the process and "in the driver's seat" is my approach to caring for patients.  I firmly believe that patients must be confident with their medical decisions and I am there them. 

I also believe in conservative medicine and avoiding surgery whenever possible.  Sometimes less is more in life and in medicine. 

It is important to listen to my patients' input and I am happy to hear about and answer questions about what they read about on the internet.

I treat all patients equally and as if he or she were one of my family members.  I encourage questions and am always willing to learn from the experience and expertise of my patients as well.   

There are many ways in which patients learn and I try to deliver information both verbally and visually.

I value the health and wellbeing of my patients above all else.
