Ruined my face! Do not go for Botox!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Tommie A Flashman - Posted on July 13th, 2017
Do not go by this person for Botox, he is not an expert injector!!! He literally ruined my face and life by causing major nerve damage. He did three injections between my nose and upper lip for purposes of reducing gum exposure when smiling. For one it has made no difference whatsoever for that purpose and there is zero decrease in my gum exposure and on the contrary it's worsened the shape of my mouth and how it closes amongst many many other serious issues! At the time of injections the right side felt fine and the injection in the middle felt fine however the one on the left side bled and was hurting, I asked him why did this one feel different and he said sometimes you can strike a nerve and that happens. I got shocked and asked nerve, isn't it l supposed to go in a muscle? To which he said there are nerves in the muscles. After the injection I developed numbness and tingling on the left side of my face and pain towards my ear and had difficulty swallowing. He was completely inaccessible when I called his emergency line that evening to report my awful scary symptoms. Finally tracked him down the next day. Long story short he prescribed me all kind of medication, steroids and antiviral drugs with tons of side effects trying to fabricate the cause of all this due to other conditions to deny his incorrect injection creating this major nerve trauma. Two days after I was supposed to be going on a vacation and I was instead stuck in the hospital emergency room while I was supposed to be boarding a flight because of all the numbness/tingling in my face that was radiating further down my left side to neck, arm and hand too. The ER doctor said the nerve trauma has caused these symptoms and I have to wait it out for it to hopefully resolve, until today 3 weeks after I'm still suffering with the facial numbness/tingling, tongue and lips tingling, and difficulty swallowing/speaking. I have lost so much hair from the stress of all this. I was told to go on the trip to relax and try to disconnect from this nightmare, it cost me an extra $7k in rebooking airline tickets and I did anything but rest as I suffered the entire time dealing with all this as did everyone else around me. I cannot believe the amount of pain and suffering I've endured because of his colossal mistake! I've missed out on so much in my life after this, it's cost me so much in additional medical expenses and my health has no price tag. My mood and energy has all been impacted I can't participate in things I'm supposed to. Don't risk your health and avoid at all costs! This man lacks injection expertise yet he took on doing botox and ruined my face and life. He has taken zero ownership of the trauma he has caused, so so saddening that I fell into this. I wish I'd never gone and allowed this person to stick those needles in my face. I even told him no photos please before but he insisted on taking them against my consent. Poor ethical practices and clearly compentency as well. Worst nightmare of my life!!!!

Dr. Flashman came recommended by a co-worker this past summer. He resolved my deviated septum issues. My surgery went very well. No complications. His work is incredible! I recently had a check up with my GP, he was shocked with how great the job Dr. Flashman performed. A+
Dr Flashman is a pro!

He's thorough, thoughtful and knowledgeable on prescription and homeopathic methods of treatment. I have several instruction sheets from him for colds, etc. Never knew not to use menthol cough drops (dries out the throat) until I went to see him. He's a pro!
I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else!

I had some procedures done on my face 2x by Dr. Flashman. The first time was for reducing lids and wrinkles for my eyes, shaping my nose, and a jaw implant. The second time was for a partial face lift. Plus several office visits for injections. I always get comments saying I look 10 yrs.youngerI hardly notice it anymore. His touch is like a "feather". He is a total perfectionist. It wasn't until I had friends that had work done by other doctors that I really came to appreciate how good this guy is.Always check around, but definately include Dr. Flashman at the top of your list!

the billing office makes a lot of mistakes:(
Self-verified patient of Dr. Tommie A Flashman - Posted on November 4th, 2010
He didn't have a nurse practitioner in his office and the front desk customer service reps. were speaking Spanish to each other for 10 mins. while I was waiting. I thought was good but didn't really answer my questions. The worst part, the biller for his office, Rosa does billing for 6 other offices and doesn't get back to you in timely manner and makes a lot of mistakes. After a year, I finally solved my insurance claim with this office because she hasn't had time to follow-up with me within a year. Charges a lot of money for just an office visit and makes a lot of billing errors:(

I went to this doctor for a 2nd opinion regarding an ENT issue. He sent me out for tests that the first doc missed and diagnosed a problem that would have gone unnoticed if not for his expertise. An added bonus is that he actually returns calls and spends time on the phone answering questions w/o making the patient feel *rushed*. I wish all doctors were like this one!
