    About me

    Dr. Fleischer received her medical degree from Hahnemann University in Philadelphia and completed a pediatrics residency at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis. After practicing pediatrics in her hometown of Carlinville, Ill., for 12 years, she sought training in genetics to provide more in depth care for children with genetic diseases. She completed her clinical genetics fellowship at St. Louis Children’s
    Hospital, Washington University School of Medicine. Her special interests include developmental delays, autism, connective tissue disorders, metabolic disorders and complex genetic disorders.
