I was very happy ?? with my visit and loved Dr. Fliegner. Would highly recommend this office in fact my son was a prior patient and referred from his primary doctor. I decided to change doctors because of that reason, I so impressed with her.

Dr Fares did my hemmoroid surgery. He answered all my questions and had technologies available to make my surgery smooth and my recovery quick. The office staff is so helpful and professional as well.

I would not recommend to anyone. Difficult to get ahold of. Did not respond to messages I sent but sent me several about giving them a review. The doctor was literally walking away from me as I was trying to ask him questions. I felt like he rushed the appointment and just didn’t seem to care at all. I will never go back to him for anything.

Dr. Fares and his staff were professional, kind and respectful at our visit. I felt comfortable asking questions and appreciated the care they showed my son during his procedure. I was relieved that my son was able to get an appointment, without much notice, to treat his condition. They were also very flexible when scheduling his follow up visit before our vacation. I also appreciated that the staff had communicated thoroughly with our pediatrician to familiarize themselves with my son's condition.

Dr Fares was extremely caring and compassionate to me. My surgery was scheduled even though he was preparing to leave on vacation. Since my problem was severely urgent, he got me into his schedule before leaving. He was kind and very considerate of my condition and went above and beyond the call of duty. I appreciate his concerns for my situation and his willingness do do my surgery on such short notice, given he was leaving for vacation. Thank you Doctor Fares for your very professional service. I cannot thank you enough for your care.

HE DOESN'T LISTEN. I had a procedure performed in August 2018; Dr. Fares performed the procedure adequately (though he didn't really explain anything about it, his nurse did), but I had some complications, and when I reported my converns at my follow-up appointment, he completely ignored everything I said, and instead touted his own professional achievements. Totally rude and condescending. It's now almost October and I am continuing to have complications, but I'm wary of making another appoint.

Dr. Fares and his staff are all I could have hoped for in my search for quality, reliable medical care and follow up visits. He has consistently provided the absolute best care, advice and treatment during every visit and for every issue I have had to get through. If you are looking for a doctor who has superior medical knowledge and many years of surgical experience, then look no farther. What makes Dr. Fares even more special is that he takes time to "know you" as a person.

I met with Dr. Fares for a consultation re: a surgery I was planning on having that I was extremely nervous about. He was extremely rude and condescending, and made me feel uncomfortable about the condition I had. He spoke to me for approximately 3 minutes about the surgery I would need, provided me little to no detail about the procedure, then sent me to scheduling. I called back to speak to a nurse, and did not receive a call back. Needless to say, I canceled the surgery. Do not recommend.

I had a problem for over 20 years that Doctors told me was in my mind basically. Dr. Fares diagnosed it immediately and took care of it that fast. Wow is all I have to say about this wonderful Dr. He might not have the best bedside manner but that's not what you should look for in a doctor. I adore him.

I was sent to Dr. Fares as a second opinion. What surprised me was Dr. Fares' hesitations in taking me to surgery. Previous doctors wanted to take me to surgery the next day. Dr. Fares sought non-surgical treatment and after a few months, my symptoms and pain are now gone.

Dr. Fares was extremely rude. I have been in extreme pain for several weeks and he told me I was in too much pain to exam. He told me to return in 2 months. He talked down to me and treated me poorly.
