Dr Kevin Fleming began his medical career in the United States, completing his residency in internal medicine as well as a fellowship in geriatric medicine at Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education. He joined Mayo Clinic in 1992 as a physician, specialising in issues pertaining to the elderly and geriatric health care, as well as fi bromyalgia.
Subsequently, he served as director of the Mayo Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Clinic.
Expertise in general medicine, diagnostics and ageing saw him then join the Executive Health Program at Mayo, before helping to establish a base in London, in partnership with the Oxford University Clinic – a development that may well be timely for the capital’s residents fortunate enough to secure his services.
As he himself explains: ‘In recent years, I have observed that our modern lifestyles have contributed to a heightened prevalence of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.’
‘However, in response to this,’ he continues, ‘it is clear to me that consumers are becoming increasingly more informed and empowered in making decisions about their health, and the industry itself is also responding to these challenges by progressively introducing innovative technologies and personalised programmes to engage with consumers and improve the patient experience.’
Fleming explains that the latest MRI, CT and X-ray tech at the state-of-the art clinic offers preventative healthcare through tailored health and wellness plans. The aim is to bring Mayo Clinic’s excellence in the delivery of care to London, while also working with both the NHS and Oxford University to further medical research.
Clients are typically HNWs, including C-suites and politicians – and Fleming takes a collaborative and proactive approach to each one. ‘This means that appointments can last several hours – we don’t need to rush,’ he explains.
‘Instead, I take time to get to know you, review your medical history, discuss your concerns, and to understand your lifestyle. During the consultation, I may also run some tests to diagnose any underlying health conditions you may have, and we will talk through any steps you can take to reduce any risks which emerge during our consultation,’ he adds.
Away from work, Fleming likes to take in the architectural sights of the Big Smoke.
