I have been a patient of Dr. Flynt since 1992.There isn't another doctor I would consider going to. He has been much more to me than just a doctor. He has been my therapist, supporter, friend, well wisher and angel in disguise. Good doctors know how to prescribe the most important drug of all ? a positive attitude. If every doctor strives to be as caring and generous as him, the world would be filled with smiles and laughter instead of pain and sorrow. Thanks for everything Dr. Flynt!!
