in Argenta IL |
Dr Fleshman was my main physician at Barnes Jewish in St Lewis. I had UC and needed total colectomy and jpouch. He resided over 3 other surgeons to accomplish this. He was involved in a charitable rotation of the hospital to aid those without insurance...me. I was lucky and got him. 23 years later, no problems and continued on with my life. He is an awesome doctor. You're blessed if you get him!!

I was a patient of Dr Fleshman while he was in St Louis, he is an exceptional physician and saved my life. I have been searching for a replacement but it is hard to find such an experienced docor.

Dr. Fleshman is the ultimate physician/surgeon in every sense of the word. Warm caring demeanor, awesome listener, exudes calmness, removes anxiety that communicates his extensive knowledge and great successes. There's none better.
