If you would like a doctor who takes as little time possible with you or has no compassion,this is your guy. He does not care what his patients concerns are and he acts uninterested in your health and dismisses you within the one minute he MAY spend with you. PLEASE THINK TWICE before seeing him. Your health issues deserve better.

I would never recommend Dr. Flotte. He performed a low back laminectomy on me and removed too much bone , destabiling my spine. I was then forced to have another back surgery a short time later and had a spinal fusion.

Terrific surgeon. Delivers what he promises. Excellent communicator.

Well were to start. Surgery itself. 2 level ACDF took 1 hour 15 min typically this is a 2 1/2 hour procedure. 1 year later preparing for a 2nd surgery same area. Bone spurs left behind, and plenty of other conditions left. Although, the post-operative report was fantastic work for lying. VA is thrilled with the outcome. Follow-up visits averaged 2 minutes per visit. Finally follow-up visit was 1 min 28 seconds avoidance is the best feature I saw throughout the process. I'm far from done.
