One Star

Clearly isn't up to par as a neurologist. Fails to have basic knowledge of such a practitioner. . Doesn't listen to the patient or have any empathy. Too busy seeing other patients to give anything other than basic tertiary pleasantries and even less accurate assessment of disease or diagnosis.

Patient

The thing I liked about Dr. Fleischer was his knowledge and attention to detail. He was very concerned and straightforward in his analysis. He is very kind and concerned about his patients. Easy to get in and no long wait.

Wrote me off as "a simple case of rebound headaches" even though I've been pretty consistant for fifteen years. Won't return phone calls, had to keep calling and pestering the poor nurse. Didn't seem I was any kind of priority at all.

Professional Extremely Competent

Dr. Fleischer ordered tests to save my life to verify a clot that was not seen on MRI. He followed my case very closely and is an excellent diagnostician
