He treated me for rectal cancer 20 years ago. He saved my life! He is a very honest guy who gives it to you up front and straight. No candy coating. He REALLY knows his stuff!

Dr. Fledged has been my gastroenterologist/ colon specialist for 20 years. He is cordial, complete and experienced. I truly appreciate his honesty and his ability to listen to all my concerns. Then he gently differentiates between my worries and actual concerns and develops a plan of care that works for me.

Very calm, easy going, efficient and professional when explaining the colonoscophy procedure during office visit. Waited 15 minutes to see him and he was in and out in another 10-15 min. Procedure itself was not much different (although 15-20 minutes longer) than a rectal exam for prostate cancer. A little sedative (I did not go to sleep but no pain at all) and you are done. Nice nurse staff also. I would highly rec. because if you do have a colon/rectal cancer he is the expert in this surgery
