Care Philosophy

When mental illness does not respond rapidly to treatment, the situation often becomes extremely painful and may become resistant to treatment. Much time an effort on the part of the patient and the family may fail to yield progress. 

My philosophy is to conduct a careful review of your condition, past efforts to provide effective treatment and to offer options that can be consider which may lead to effective treatment. The recommendations  and options available will be presented to you as only you can make the decision about which path you want to follow to take you to recovery. 

I strive to offer respectful, considerate and compassionate care along with the latest information about useful and helpful treatment strategies.

    Please find another doctor any other doctor! Dr F's office is unprofessional, refused to help with insurance reimbursement His billing is so bad, I had to contact Dr F, himself and get him to do a bill which was incorrect, it's been an uphill battle for almost TWO months! He's still not helpingA very bad experience! His office told me my treatment would not be covered by my insurance and would not do a pre-authorization. My Treatment WAS covered! Much more wrong - no more space to write!

    Dr. Fleming reminds me of a dictionary-you can ask him about any drug treatment for your condition and he knows the medications, their uses, all that goes wrong with a drug but most importantly, he can, >90% of the time, come up with treatments. He is easy to talk to and very kind as well.

    Dr. Fleming says...

    I have been a psychiatrist for nearly 40 years. Having been trained in conducting psychotherapy, this is still an interest and a treatment option that I offer my patients. Over the last 20 years, I have specialized in treating medication resistant depressions, PTSD, OCD, and anxiety as well as a variety of other psychiatric problems. Please see the section on procedures below. 

    Dr. Fleming says...

    When medications do not help, or cause side effects, what are the options?

    We start with laboratory studies of hormone levels, vitamin levels and other issues such as the presence of sleep apnea that may make it harder for medications to work.

    Then there are then a number of paths we offer:

    1. Medication Selection Based on Doctor Experience:  based on extensive study of how medications work for individuals and what side effects they can cause, I can suggest a course of treatment that will be more effective than what has been tried before.
    2. We can conduct DNA Genetic Testing to discover which drugs may work and eliminate some that are unlikely to work.
    3. We can use EEG Biomarker Testing to compare your brain waves to a standard data base of other peoples' responses to medications to select a combination right for you.
    4. We can offer TMS to treat mood and anxiety without using medicine, avoiding side effects.
    5. We offer Ketamine Infusion treatment of major illnesses for very rapid improvement.
