Not the way to greet a new patient
Self-verified patient of Dr. Mark R Fleckner - Posted on January 14th, 2019
Went to this Doctor for the first time. All of his staff is extremely friendly and courteous, but the Dr. lacks basic manners. He introduced himself giving me his back. If I ever introduced myself giving my back to a prospective client, I would definitely not get the job. His examination was rushed. I wouldn't consider going back.
Was able to see me quickly, highly recommend

Lacks compassion & and concern...
Self-verified patient of Dr. Mark R Fleckner - Posted on November 6th, 2018
Dr.Fleckner showed no compassion or interest when seeing my mother. He is impatient and rushes when questions are asked and does not go into detail. He lacks bedside manner. Your feel as though you are an irritant to him with every question you ask or for every minute he has to spend with you. The entire time he makes you feel uncomfortable. The results of her surgery were terrible which added to it all. I would NOT recommend him to anyone.
