Dr. Fleming Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Fleming Jr "Practicing in the field of Otolaryngology is my greatest passion. I enjoy the challenge of this diverse specialty and am driven by the pursuit of delivering the best patient care. I am a partner in a large, multiple specialty, practice (Ohio ENT and Allergy Physicians) focusing on pediatric and adult ENT issues. Currently I hold the position of Medical Director for our practice. I also spend quite a bit of time covering several large hospitals in Columbus, OH. I am currently the Chief of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery section at Riverside Methodist Hospital. In addition to clinical practice, I enjoy teaching others in the medical field about ENT diseases and treatments. I do actively teach ENT residents and family practice residents as well as give annual lectures to nurse practitioner students. Within the field of Otolaryngology, I have a particular interest in Otology (Ear), Sinus, Laryngology (Voice and Swallowing), Endocrine (Thyroid/Parathyroid) and Head and Neck Oncology (Cancer). I do keep current with recent advancements in our field. Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful wife and two sons, traveling, exercising, listening to music, and playing chess. Nothing gives me more joy than to improve the well being and quality of life of my patients."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fleming Jr "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."

Dr. Fleming was wonderful to work with. He helped repair my top and bottom lips after I sustained a serious dog bite. He communicated very clearly what his expectations were, as well as concerns he had moving forward. Also, the work he did to stitch my lips back together was very well done and I...more

Our little son Gabe (6) had his adenoids removed from Dr.Fleming: everything went great, before during and after the surgery. In particular I will never thank Dr.Fleming enough for being available even at his mobile after the surgery, answering "silly" questions.

Dr. Fleming is wonderful! He has a calm, pleasant personality. He was great with both my kids. He thanked my daughter for the drawing she made him and even showed it to a nurse later. My son came in, still with infected ears after two rounds of antibiotics, and he got us in for tube surgery...more
