Patient Comments (1)
in Kittery, ME |
I've been a patient of Dr. Flores since I was only a few months old. I'm now 25. He wasn't taking new patients at the time but after countless tearful begging calls from my mom, he finally agreed to see me. And I can say with no exaggeration this man saved my life. Not only is he an incredible physician who truly cares about his patients, he's one of the kindest humans I've ever known. He's so amazing, I haven't had an appointment with him in YEARS! But he's so awesome I kinda miss him ;-)
