The overall experience was great. We were taken back to the room about 4-5 minutes after we checked in. Then doctor Dr. Fleeter came in the room about 3 minutes after that. This sort of prompt and courteous service is almostunheard of in today's medical environment. Dr. Fleeter had a pretty good bedside manner and explained our options quite clearly. We left with a procedure scheduled and feel pretty confident about the upcoming surgery and what to expect. Also, it seems that almost everyone around knows Dr. Fleeter and he has a solid reputation. Definitely worth a visit if your having an orthopedic problem that falls under his specialization.

I felt like I was rushed. Doctor was in, doctor was out, physical therapy appointments were suggested. They seemed busy and I understand that, I just hope that I find a resolution for what brought me into the doctors office in the first place.

I wish doctor had little more patience to hear my problem and show better support. Definitely he seems to be knowledgeable but unfortunately it is not helpful when he is not willing to listen patients. I wish there is an option called "pay for what you get"

The visit took all of ten minutes. I felt that although it was good that he did not do any unnecessary tests ( xrays etc) he was quick to point out that the condition could be caused by anything. I hadmentioned my work situation to his assistant ( at the computer most of the time) with no intention of applying for disability or anything remotely related. But somehow I felt that was the assumption for my consultation. And there was no further discussion on the etiology.

Dr. Fleeter took time to listen and figure out what was going wrong. After an inaccurate diagnosis 8 years ago he was able to still figure out the issue, and get me into PT almost immediately to start correcting the problem.I'm really happy to see Dr. Fleeter's office had interns too. They've got a great example to learn from.
