Great Doctor
Dr Fleischli is extremely determined to fix your issues. He takes time to make sure you understand your choices and never tries to sway you. He actually cares about his patients and their outcomes. I highly recommend him if you have a knee or shoulder issue.

My experience today confirmed that pregnant women get terrible physical care for everything outside of actual prenatal care. I saw Dr. Fleischli for my knee injury/pain that has left me almost unable to walk. His advice was to just keep icing it and see since they are unable to get an XRAY or MRI. He provided no other tips or recommendations. I asked him to provide some exercises or things I could do to help speed along recovery or strengthen the knees -- this seemed to bother him for some reason. He was wholly unhelpful and has a terrible demeanor with women. Go to anyone else but him if you want to have any idea of how to not only identify an injury but prevent future injuries.

Expert Professional Care
Dr. Fleischli, Dr. Li (Resident) and Lauren (Nurse) were knowledgeable, efficient, professional and attentive. They offered options that were best for me that included a referral to another doctor within the practice. I feel they want me to have the best possible outcome with the shortest recovery time. I have peace knowing that I am in extremely capable and caring hands at OrthoCarolina.

Dr Phil Fleischli is one of the best doctors that has ever done surgery on me. I had shoulder surgery and there was hardly no pain and a full recovery. I’m gonna go get the other shoulder done to. If you want the job done right Dr Fleischli is the doctor to go to.

High praises for this orthopedic surgeon. Very personable and knowledgeable. Son had shoulder surgery back in April for 360 labrum tear and detached bicep tendon. He has recovered nicely. He is back in the pool swimming.

Dr Fleischli’s a phenomenal physician. Listens carefully & thoroughly explains the thought process behind his assessment. Gives options for further work up/treatment and allows the patient to make informed decisions regarding their care. Could not recommend him more highly! My only gripe is with the incredibly long wait times to get somebody on the phone with OrthoCarolina. Every time I’ve called it’s been 20-30+ minutes of being on hold before somebody answers. This obviously has nothing to do with Dr Fleischli himself so my rating won’t reflect it…but their office really needs to hire a few more people to staff the phones.

I sent up an appointment to check on my swollen left knee. Before my visit I was greeted by the receptionist with a pleasant hello to register came a little early I was there about 40 minutes early then they called me back after my paperwork was completed and the payment was made the nurse who greeted me and walked me back to the room with Pleasant of cost that do that to try to make the experience easier the x-ray technician was outstanding gave me some funny ways of telling me how to hold this put your knee in here sitting there. Dr Fleischli was Pleasant and professional and asked why was I there to see him. He examined my knee explain to me what was going on after looking at my x-rays and broke it down into what would happen next during that time he remove fluid from my knee he made it so simple and easy with a plan for healing. GREAT EXPERIENCE, WONDERFUL DOCTOR AND STAFF!

De. Fleischli is Amazing! So attentive and so caring. Went in due to knee pain (he performed my surgery a couple if years prior). He listened to every word I had to say... his kindness ... he was so genuine. At one point he was had gotten up but when I expressed my worry... he sat back down and listened. It truly made me feel cared for... I wish I could have him for other health related issues.

My 55 year old body rebelled against my push-up regimen. I was in constant pain and my ability to sleep was impacted. Knowing which orthopedic doctor to choose was a simple decision for me since my son, and others on his high school football team, were directed to Dr. Fleischli. He learned from the sports medicine pioneer. I greatly appreciate that multiple doctors were involved in my preliminary visits. The first evaluation would be from a doctor learning from Dr. Fleischli. Then, Dr. Fleischli would walk them through his evaluation. After the initial X-rays and physical therapy, Dr. Fleischli ordered the MRI which identified some structural issues in my shoulder. As we discussed surgical options, I happened to state a specific restricted motion that caused me pain. Dr. Fleischli went back to the MRI to confirm a new finding (frozen shoulder). One day after surgery, I stopped meds. Five days after surgery, I was driving to a football game. Thank you Dr. Fleischli!
