I had a breast reduction done because of back and neck pain my insurance covered most of the cost. When I had my consult, Dr. Fleming flipped through his book quickly. The only question he asked me was what size I wanted to get down to. Since I was quite large and overweight, I said I wanted to be a D cup, he said he could get me to a C cup. I said let me make sure that I can fiND C cups in my size. I told him that a C cup would work. After surgery, I was a B cup, I feel mamed and disappoi

I would recommend Dr. Fleming to anyone who is looking for a cosmetic surgeon. He did my breast reconstruction after I had a double mastectomy and he was so caring and compassionate, words cannot express how important this was to me at the time. I am forever grateful for him.

Dr. Fleming did lrti surgery on my left thumb. It had disastrous results. Beware that he has no certifications in hand surgery or orthopedics.

Dr. Fleming is a wonderful cosmetic surgeon. His skill as a surgeon is simply amazing. I interviewed/consulted with several other doctors before going with Dr. Fleming and I made the right choice!!! He is also very funny which put me at ease right away. His office staff are also very, very, very ice and get top reviews also. If anyone in the Tri-Cities is looking for a cosmetic surgeon they should run not walk to Dr. Fleming's office.

I was desperate to find a doctor who could address a dermatology problem that had gotten out of control. Finding Dr. Fleming changed my life and I will be forever grateful. Dr. Fleming has an 'all business' bedside manor but his skills are exceptional.
