Patient Comments (3)
in Gainesville, GA |
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!
Gainesville, GA |
Dr Flickinger is very warm and seems to have sincere interest in patients. Very helpful in explaining disease process and medication regimen. Every member of staff has been friendly and helpful. They are unfailing polite on every visit.
I was misdiagnosed and treated for that diagnosis for almost 2 years
