Dr. Fleming, he saved my eyesight!!! If it wasn't for his caring attitude and his experience in his field I would be blind in my right eye. Each and every time I went to see him he has been very professional and kind. I also know he was very nice to all of the other employees at the clinic. Would I refer my best friend to Dr. Fleming?? Hell yes!!! If Dr. Fleming was released from his duties because of this incident with Jamesetta Lampley?, SHAME ON YOU!!! Call me! Roger Hayes 618-237-1199

excellent.
The worst experience with an Ophthalmologist ever! Dr. Fleming should lose his license to work with geriatric patients. His bedside manner is appalling and his patience and compassion when working with the elderly is nonexistent. Dr. Fleming's treatment of my mother, WITH family members in the room, was appalling. He had my Mom in tears with how he was treating her. She was so shook up after the appointment we had to take her to the hospital to make sure she wasn't having heart attack!
