Specialties

Dr. Susan Fleming has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

  • Pain Management

    A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
    These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
    Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.

Patient

I've never had a more understanding caring and kind doctor. She truly shows respect and care for everything you have concerns with. She is not a push over at all and will not give you anything at anytime you ask for it. She has a right to treat people with the medicine she feels is enough for the problem.

Five Stars

Dr. Fleming is a wonderful pain management doctor! I have had back issues for over 15 years enduring multiple procedures & a surgery, Dr. Fleming is the first person to believe I me when I said I have pain & not treat me like an idiot or pill seeker. She listens to my description of my pain, when it started, what area is effected, what makes it worst, etc. Asks questions. Then tells me what she thinks the problem is & what is causing it. After that we discuss how to handle the situation, offering exercises, procedures or medication options. She also takes time to learn about what is happening in my life, which most doctors don't bother to do but knowing my stress levels or what I'm doing in my professional life can really effect my pain levels & treatment options! She and her receptionist Sage are really outstanding: they care about me & go out of their way to help!

Cares about her patients

I have been in chronic pain for over 3 yrs. Being passed from doctor to doctor, tests, mri's, different procedures, etc. etc. Dr. Fleming is the only one who seemed concerned enough to really help me. She has guided me to have surgery and to different treatments that are very helpful. I have been a patient of hers for over one and a half years. My condition is improving with her help. She always calls me back and Sage is very pleasant and helpful. I can function and manage my pain due to the caring support I receive from Dr. Fleming.
