I do have confidence in my doctor about my problem.

10/24/2014

We have recommended this provider many times. Excellent provider.

10/12/2014

Dr. Fleischer impresses me an an exceptional physician. My only negative experience stems from his rush during my exam. I had little opportunity to ask several questions that I had. He spent too little time with me. I suspect he was concerned with other patients who had more significant problems than presented in my routine exam. I would certainly recommend the good doctor.

10/2/2014

I drive 6 hours one way to see this provider. Need I say more. He is extremely friendly, attentive, professional. He displays a great deal of attention to my health concerns as well as to me as an individual. He listens very attentively, and explains every detail in terms that I can understand. Outstanding!

9/26/2014

No bad experience.

8/23/2014

He's the best!

8/19/2014

Dr provided his personal cell number if I needed any follow up. That was pretty cool.

8/15/2014

Used some terminology unknown, with no explanation.

7/22/2014

Alan is a very caring doctor

7/10/2014

Good.

6/30/2014

Very good.

5/13/2014

Dr. and associate determined what was causing my problem that I have had with the sun for almost a year. Very pleased with information.

4/21/2014

Dr. Fleischer was absolutely perfect! I will make sure to let other providers and patients know about his capabilities.

4/21/2014

I enjoy his kind-heartedness!

4/2/2014

I have already recommended *Dr. Fleischer to others & they love him, too.

3/5/2014

He, as always, was a very active listener. He showed interest in me as an individual as well as a patient. He explained things in terms that I could understand and was in no way condescending. He made sure that I understood various aspects of my problem. He was very positive, upbeat, and friendly.

3/5/2014

Good
