Dr Flanagan has treated me for over 15 years. He was my mother's doctor 19 years ago. He treated her with medical excellence and amazing kindness. She lost both of her feet and his compassion was a constant comfort. I have two new knees which healed without any issues or complications. His support and skill is 100% and his caring demeaner for his patients is outstanding. I highly recommend this surgeon.

Horrible man! I was at the hospital supposed to have surgery and waited for 3 hours for him to tell me he wouldn't do surgery!!! When he told me I was very upset & crying and he showed no compassion!!! I wouldn't let him operate on anyone!

I would highly recommend Dr. James Flanagan Jr. to all family and friends. Dr. Flanagan performed a complete hip replacement on my right hip. His method of operation was the anterior procedure, which provided for a faster recovery. I am pain free for the first time in years. I am able to get in and out of my car, climb steps, put on my socks and shoes and walk without pain. I was driving again in three weeks after surgery. My friends are amazed how fast my recovery has been.
