This is one top notch Dr's office from staff to Dr. They treat you with 24Kt gloves. Dr Flangas is so personable and acts like you are his only patient and seems genuinely interested in you as a patient rather than a number. Natalie and staff treat you the same.You are never rushed and always treated with such respect. I would HIGHLY recommend this office to everyone. He is one awesome Doctor and you should trust him with your care completely. No negativity means an awesome outcome.

My experience with Dr. Flangas and his entire staff was incredible. I had a level three anterior neck fusion, spinal cord stenosis & several bone spurs pushing on my spinal cord. It was evident that surgery was the best option for me but he never made me feel pressure to have it. Dr. Flangas & surgical coordinator, Natalie, were so kind & answered all of my questions. They really put my mind at ease. The surgery went perfectly and I haven't felt this good in years! Outstanding surgeon & staff!

Dr Flangas is very personable, explains everything in detail, listens and answers all questions. I received many excellent recommendations and I felt very comfortable having him perform my cervical fusion which was a success! His office staff is very friendly and efficient!
in Las Vegas, NV |
I have had 7 surgeries, 3 were lower back surgeries done by 2 different doctors. The recovery time was 7 days in the hospital, and months of physical therapy. This surgery was totally the opposite! I have never felt this good after surgery! And no physical therapy!
in Las Vegas, NV |
My husband has been going to Dr. Flangas for over 10 years. He is an excellent doctor and takes the time to explain the procedure in detail. He has performed 3 surgeries on my husbands' back. Each time Dr. Flangas took the time to explain the procedure, the expected outcome and an estimate of the recovery time. After each surgery, Dr. Flangas took the time to explain the procedure to me. We would recommend him for any neuro-surgery procedure.
in Henderson |
He is an excellent surgeon, great bedside manner and spends as much time as you need him to talk about your condition and what he can do for you. He makes no promises but is realistic in what he can do for you. I have had 4 surgeons work on my lumbar and cervical area and he is the best
