Before I had the surgery, I was always being told how flat I looked, and I always had to wear uncomfortable padded bras with stiff underwire. They had to be really tight so as not to slide up over my breasts when I raised my arms. I could never fill out tops without inserts and padding! I was actually a size ‘A’ - almost ‘B’!
Dr. Fleming and his staff were awesome! Dr. Fleming is a master artist. Not only did he pick the right size, but he listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. I am more than pleased with the results. The surgery went well and the staff at the hospital was wonderful! The recovery was as they said it would be. Now I am having the time of my life! Outfits look stunning and I receive many compliments. I wish I had done this sooner! I love going without a bra. And I can wear the cutest bras without having them weigh a ton from all the padding, be stiff from the wires, or dig into my shoulders from trying to crank them up to a reasonable height. After all, after 3 kids they had traveled south quite a bit, and they were flat. I feel confident, feminine and I walk with my shoulders back, showing them off! I did not want big, I wanted symmetry and proportion. Dr. Fleming gave that to me! It has been several months and I can only say that they feel exactly like they are a natural part of me. It is amazing!
Thank you Dr. Fleming!
Dr. Fleming has the credentials and confidence that I was looking for in a surgeon. I did a lot of research on surgeons located in Washington and Oregon before making my decision. He was certainly the best choice. I am grateful to him and his staff. They were patient with me, honest and answered all my questions. Dr. Fleming not only made me feel at ease prior to the surgery but did a beautiful job!
I am thrilled with the results of my breast reduction and honestly, I couldn’t be happier. I was extremely large busted, and now feeling much better with almost nonexistent back, shoulder and neck pain. I have lived over 25 years with constant, annoying pain and embarrassed about my breast size. Not only am I healthier and happier but feel more confident as my clothing now fits much nicer. I have friends and co-workers asking “who is your doctor?” and “what else does he do?”, as they are impressed. Dr. Fleming exceeded my expectations in every way. My only regret is that I did not have the procedure done sooner.
Dr. Fleming also treated my son for a cyst removal that was located on the back of his neck. He was 8 years old at the time. He did a superb job with him as well, and again, made him feel comfortable which is incredibly important at that age.
I truly respect and appreciate Dr. Fleming for his talents, skill, and knowledge. Our experiences have been absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Fleming and am thankful he is her in the Tri Cities. We truly couldn’t ask for a better surgeon, before, during or after the procedures.
Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
After making the important decision to have elective surgery (abdominoplasty) and 5 years of going to consultations (most out of town) trying to find a doctor proved much more difficult than I expected. What a relief it was for me to find Dr. Fleming right here in the Tri Cities. His staff was welcoming and professional and Dr. Fleming was confident and kind. I immediately felt comfortable with him. I went in to the surgery with some fear and pain yet looking forward to it so that I could have a “normal” stomach for the first time in 20 years. I can honestly say that the lack of pain was surprising and my results were absolutely beautiful, far exceeding my expectations! I cannot put into words how much this surgery has positively affected the way I feel about myself. With Dr. Fleming’s talent and abilities and “bedside manner” I would not hesitate for one second to go back to him for another procedure or to recommend him to anyone!
I would like to take some time to share my story with you. Four years ago I had to undergo an emergency surgery to save my life. It left me with a terrible scar that went much deeper than just the outside. Every day the scar was the first thing I would see so I would relive the nightmare everyday, no matter how hard I tried to just realize that I was lucky to be alive! I just couldn’t get past this scar that was left on my body.
I was so afraid of doctors. I had no trust in anyone. So I went through mental health for a year and a half. With the help of my doctor and counseling I finally made an appointment with Dr. Fleming through Kadlec Clinic Plastic surgery, keeping in my mind that I was just going to hear what he had to say and telling myself that if I wasn’t completely comfortable with it then I didn’t have to do it.
My first appointment I was so scared and nervous, doing everything I could to keep myself together, thinking I had to go through all this again, but the nurse was so patient and understanding as I explained that this is much deeper than just the outside scar on me. There was six months between the first appointment and surgery and during those six months I was on an emotional roller coaster, first I was going to do the surgery then I wasn’t. I called and talked to Melissa and she made me feel much better about my concerns. All of the staff made me feel like they were in this fight with me. I could not have asked for a more caring and sensitive doctor. He not only fixed the disfigurement but he and his staff had made it possible for me to close a door and to move on with my life. I would like to thank Dr. Fleming and his wonderful staff for giving me my life back.
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Fleming. I first discovered his name in the newspaper when they announced he had arrived here and it said that he specialized in thumbs. Having had a very bad experience with my right thumb and having to have three surgeries on it and my left thumb now being bad, I immediately called for an appointment and went in. He was wonderful, he was personable and I was very reassured that he was going to do a great job, which he did on my thumb.
After that I had a finger fixed and re-built. I recommend him so strongly and know that he can do anything that you may ask him to do.
His office staff, Melissa and all of them are just very, very great about appointments, about attention, answering all your questions and I would say that its just about the perfect office to go to.
Dr. Fleming is very thorough and he’s just an all around wonderful doctor. You feel comfortable with him, you feel reassured that he knows what he’s doing and I just think the Tri-Cities is so much richer to have Dr. Fleming here.
Clinic and provider experience
It was really important to me to have a great plastic surgeon that was local. I’m not able to take a lot of time off work so I needed to schedule my consultation, my pre-ops and my post-ops around my work schedule. I researched Dr. Fleming's website and found that he was board certified which put a lot of my concerns at ease right away and after meeting him it just verified that.
Dr. Fleming and his staff are extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and very informative. Everyone involved took excellent care of me, and I felt totally comfortable every step of the way. Even before I saw Dr. Fleming, their office staff, especially Melissa, answered every question I had and she always returned a phone call.
When I scheduled my appointment with Melissa, we had actually scheduled the surgery before my pre-op appointment, just so I could get on the books. She knew I needed to get something done right away, due to the sensitive nature of my situation. Dr. Fleming and his staff were wonderful throughout the entire process, kind of held me by the hand, and made it happen for me on the day that I wanted it to happen.
I would encourage anyone looking for a plastic surgeon to make an appointment with Dr. Fleming.
I chose Dr. Fleming was for the one reason: I work with him. He’s an excellent doctor, his bedside manner is wonderful, and he pays total attention to what you want. When my husband and I came into his office, he was just a wonderful, wonderful man.
I’ve been looking into a breast augmentation for many years. I researched outside of the area, Seattle, Spokane and I chose Dr. Fleming who is a board certified physician in plastic surgery here in the Tri-Cities. And for my financial needs he met all those, I was able to stay here in the Tri-Cities, in my own home, I didn’t have to stay in a hotel.
I feel Dr. Fleming is very knowledgeable, he is very caring about whatever he is doing, from augmentation, to facelifts, to liposuction, he is smart and focused with what he’s doing in the operating room.
If you want to go, go and do it. It’s just something you should do if you need to. It's affordable, it's here in the Tri-Cities and Dr. Fleming's wonderful, he’s the best.
He’s very approachable, he’s very nice, his staff is great, he’s a wonderful doctor.
