Review of Dr. Flagg II


Dr. Flagg refuses to write anything (tramadol) if you test positive for marijuana but will do injections (which causes more problems). Yet these type of pain clinics are the reason we have an opiod problem. Always a long wait and obviously doesn't care about his patients health just the paycheck. Skip this guy and find a doctor that will properly take care of your specific needs.

I have been a patient of Dr Conn for 2 years, and she has improved the quality of my life. She has gotten migraine headaches under control as well as other chronic pain conditions I live with.

Review of Dr. Flagg II

- in Covington, LA |

I have seen other pain management doctors, but I've never met a MD like Dr. Flagg exhibits genuine care and concern for his patients. He listens and answers all questions without a problem. He leaves you with the feeling of "life gets better"! I will definitely refer anyone in need of help managing their pain to Dr. Flagg. He is the best!

Review of Dr. Flagg II

- in Mandeville |

I cannot rate my experience with Dr. Flagg anything less than a 5. Going to a doctor when in pain and not sure if they can help is stressful enough as you are looking for relief. Dr. Flagg really puts any unanswered questions at ease. His bedside manner is that of being very caring and compassionate. He treats his patients as if they are family. He is very knowledgeable and makes sure you won't leave the office with any ounce of worry. When it comes to referring to a pain MD, he is top notch.

Review of Dr. Lee

- in Hammond |

Dr. Lee demonstrates a genuineness of heart that often is lacking in health care across all disciplines. While Dr. Lee often depends on imaging and objectivity that may demonstrate a patently obvious reason as to why the patient may complain of pain, his keen assessment skills come to bear in those subjective complaints that requuire more thought and consideration. My quality of life has been restored to a noticeable level because ofcaring and expertise.

Review of Dr. Flagg II

- in Magnolia |

Dr. Flagg refused to provide services My second visit, he had discovered an L4 compression fracture and sent me for an MRI that couldn't be done until after this appt. Notified his office they said drive the hour, keep the appointment When Dr. Flagg realized the MRI had not been done he seemed to forget that I was there for help and became angry about milleneals on his staff, wasting time, insurance issues. Left me with an appointment in two weeks nothing for pain feeling like a scolded child.
