Long-distance runner and avid reader to my daughter

Dr. Fleming consistently makes evident - by the questions he asks and the terms he clearly defines - that he is an outstanding communicator with his patients - and someone who welcomes questions from his patients. The result is a trusting and mutually respectful relationship with his patients.

Dr. Fleming explained to me ways to reduce scar tissue in my wrist. He told me that scar tissue is disorganized and that gentle light stroking along the tendon can reduce the disorganization. This was encouraging as I didn't understand why aggressive working of the wrist and massage had been discouraged by the PT and was confused about how to proceed.
