Dr Fleischli takes time to go through my xrays, etc. and describe what's taking place with my knees. He then presents me with my options for treatment, while preferring options that don't involve surgery which is a last resort. He's friendly and seems concerned about my condition.

I appreciated that Dr. Fleischli was not quick to suggest anything invasive, like surgery, for my shoulder issue. Unlike many doctors, he listened attentively to me and seemed to genuinely care. He has an humble, empathetic demeanor.

I liked him better with the beard haha. Dr. Fleichli has operated on me twice this past year & so far so good. He doesn’t rush out of the room like so many do these days. He’s very knowledgeable & thoughtful. And his PA Matt is very smart.

I have had many surgeries and this is the worst surgeon I have ever been to in my life. I am one year post op and still having to work very hard to mend all the post op complications I have had to endure. I was given the most poor surgical choice for my ailment and Dr. Fleischli’s nurse even wrote down an incorrect diagnosis on my surgical chart. I am a Smith College Graduate and a Masters degree holder from NYU. I have also studied and lived around the world and have never had such a poor medical treatment as I had here with this so called surgeon. I am leaving one star in the rating by force as this form will not allow me to submit my review without filling out at least on of the five stars. In truth, I give no stars and am simply grateful to be alive after such a barbaric butchering of my body.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr Fleischli through my own 2 knee surgeries and now a shoulder and elbow issue. He has also treated the rest of my family through several ailments! Great bedside manner and listens to you about your issues. I never feel rushed. He also has a great support staff. They all work very well together.

Dr Fleishli Had a big challenge with my shoulder from previous surgery and he completed it like a pro! It’s better it’s back to functioning fully it’s only been six months but I had a lot of work done I highly recommend him for any surgeries especially shoulder! Donna Collins

I've seen Dr. Fleischli many times over several years. He is a highly skilled physician who is always personable, professional, kind and sincere. My family was equally impressed when he spoke with them after my surgery; so much so that when two of them experienced issues of their own, he was the first and only doctor they wanted to see. I have referred friends to him, and their experiences were equal to mine. I would without hesitation highly recommend Dr. Fleischli and OrthoCarolina.

Dr. Fleischli won my confidence when my oldest son who had a scholarship to play baseball had to have surgery his senior year of high school. He knew exactly what to do and made all of us feel confident in his recovery and at ease. I would never go to another doctor in this field. He far exceeded our expectations!

Dr. Fleischli first treated our son who was involved ina horrific motorcycle crash. Dr. Fleischli worked to correct the injuries to our son,kept us informed during the several surgeries, developed a plan for rehabilitation and truly has been a blessing to our family. SO much so that i am now seeing him for orthopedic issues. I cannot express how wonderful he has been to us through these events.
