This office ran like a well oiled machine! Everyone seemed to know their position and performed their duties quickly and efficiently. Everyone was kind and polite. The office was clean and the waiting room was neat and comfortable. Dr. Fleischli was professional and knowledgeable. I trusted him to do my surgery almost immediately! He explained my options clearly and in a way I could understand. I was completely comfortable. The office and staff are 5 stars!
