Disappointed in the visit with Dr. Flaming in May, 2020. He seemed uninterested and distracted. I didn't feel like I got a good diagnosis and left feeling frustrated and no follow up was advised.

He was rude, condescending and showed no interest in my problem, what a waste of time and money. The guy seems burned out, maybe time for retirement? The office staff was very nice.

Dr. Flaming recently performed a T & A and ear tube placement on my 3 year old. His bedside manner is impeccable and he was reassuring at every turn. My son is my whole life and he made our family comfortable in his capable hands. Very highly recommend this kind surgeon and his excellent staff.
