Dr. Fleming was very pleasant, but I went to him because I fell and injured my knee. He did not spend more then five minutes with me. He told me that I had strained the ligaments in my knee but never examined my knee. He told me to come back in a few months if my knee still hurt and them he left the room. I will never use De. Fleming again or recommend him to my friends.

Dr. Fleming performed my rotator cuff surgery on June 2nd 2016. I had been under the care of a different orthopedist who was unable to diagnose my pain after a horrible fall . I saw Dr. Fleming as a second opinion and from the first day, he had a plan for my healing. He listened, was caring, kind and explained each phase of my recovery. I am now about 10 weeks post op and my physical therapist says right on track with healing. I cannot say enough about Dr. Fleming. He is WONDERFUL!!

Dr. Fleming treated me for a rotator cuff injury. Did all possible to avoid surgery, however due to further trauma brought on by myself, he recommended surgery. Great job. After 7 months I am at about 90%, much quicker than expected. Discharged July 7.

Dr. Fleming has been my orthopedic surgeon for over 20 years. I have played high school football and baseball into my freshman year of college and have played competitive racquetball for 54 years and I am STILL playing. Needless to say my knees have taken a pounding. Dr. Fleming has operated on both knees on three different occasions and because of his surgical skill, he was able to preserve as much meniscus as he could. He treated my shoulders and elbow successfully. He is top notch!

Dr. Fleming is not only a Great doctor he is in my words Fantastic. I had a nasty Rotator cuff surgery and with his help and Physical Therapy I've come a long way since Jan 6th. I would recommend Dr. Fleming to everyone that needs surgery for their shoulder or knee. He is a great person who give you plenty of time. Truly love him as a doctor and a person.

Dr. Fleming is very personable and informed. After completion of an x-ray in the office, he explained the findings and what would be the best course of action to take to alleviate the pain in both knees. Dr. Fleming took great care when administering the Orthovisc shots insuring that the Novocaine took effect before the injection took place. I am very pleased to have him as my Orthopedic Specialist.

I would recommend Dr. Fleming Jr. without any hesitation. I had shoulder surgery and he was very receptive to my concerns, before and after surgery.
in Princeton, NJ |
The operation was successful and relatively pain free. Dr Fleming's office manages a physical therapy unit so he is able to monitor progress following the operation and follow up.

Have gone to Dr. Fleming for both knee and ankle problems. He is thorough in his analysis and treatment, and he conveys feedback in an understandable way. I would highly recommend him.
