Dr. Fluhme, you are a wizard in diagnosis and remedies. 81 year old - Andy Marcinko This past Tuesday AM I played tennis despite my chronic legs soreness limiting my agility on the court. Then that PM I visited with you and your remedy was cortisone shots. The next AM I felt virtually no pain in my legs. Today, Thursday, I played one of my best games with full mobility and no chronic achiness. Thus, a healing effect in much less time than is expected.

Terrible experience! Dr. fluhme failed to find out why I had extreme pain for 3 years after knee replacement. He never ordered more testing. I got a second opinion and needed another surgery to correct a botched knee replacement.

I was very impressed with him at first. After 8+ months of dealing with hip pain from hip replacement surgery, he seemed to listen to my concerns but ignored them. Did find out that there is an issue with the replacement but he doesn't want to do anything about it. I would not recommend him to anyone.

Great at explaining all options and making you feel comfortable. Highly recommended

I spent $4000 out of pocket as Dr Fluhme told me I was perfect candidate for STEM CELL THERAPY in place of knee replacement,. After 4 months of continuing pain after the shot he couldn't figure out why it didn't work. He was using a 9 month old x-ray to make that determination. Turns out after seeking 2nd opinion and a recent x-ray, I had bone on bone in my left knee and severe arthritis and knee replacement would be only option. Too bad he didn't do a new x-ray before I spent $4000!

Dr Fluhme is extremely accessable. He explains options, risks, optimum preparation and follows up well, all the while exuding confidence without cockiness
