Dr. Flickinger is the kind of doctor who is compassionate, kind and listens to your issues and does not rush you through. Very knowledgeable and takes the time to answer all your health related questions. He has also replied to my portal message on Sunday. Would recommend him highly to all my family and friends.

Dr. Flickenger is very thorough when it comes to your health. He is the kind of doctor that takes the time with his patient's and listens. He has the best bedside manners. He wants to make sure you have quality of life. You will not be just a number. I am so grateful I found him. I was at a point in my life where walking became very difficult. We went through a few medications until he found a great balance and now I can walk and do other things without to many struggles. I am finally happy!
