Dr. Flores is a wonderful doctor, with expertise and knowledge on a wide array of information. He also is personable, likable and has the best bedside manner of any doctor I've encountered. He has treated my daughter for the past year for Crohn's disease and has helped guide us through the process of becoming a family with a child with a chronic disease. He is always available to answer questions, none too big or too small. I am thankful we were fortunate to have Dr. Flores take on our daughter.

Dr Flores is the most dedicated GI motility professional. His passion for his patients and for the science behind of ALL his advisements radiates the room when you meet him-EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I have 3 children who suffer from dysmotiliy disorders including chronic idiopathic pseudo-obstructive disorder, and I believe he has saved their lives-literally. I am eternally grateful to him. There simply arent enough words to describe how amazing, kind and intelligent he is. He raises the bar for all.

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 ;-)
