Dr. Fleischer is a super star!!!!! Case in point, he puts up with me!!!!!! I'm lucky to have a doctor who cares the way he does. Makes it just a little easier for me to deal with my wonky foot. He is very accommodating and he takes his time with each patient. I'm a little ticked off to find out he is younger than I. That really doesn't seem fair. It used to be that doctors and other responsible adults had at least a couple of years on me! Still, I'd give a 5 star recommendation ANY DAY! Thank you Dr. Fleischer!!!!
Friendly staff. Clean. No wait whatsoever. Received a text message reminder with a simple request to text back YES for confirmation. Doctor Fleischer was polite, professional and reviewed X-rays with me. Conversation was kept professional and limited to the reasons for appointment. No small talk and I definitely appreciated that. Would recommend.
Dr. Adam Fleischer, addressed all my concerns, along with his intern David. Thank you all for your professional and courteous care.
