What People Say About Dr. Keith Flak, MD

I went in for a routine cyst removal and he wanted me to get an MRI AFTER he asked me to do an x-ray. I consulted with TWO other doctors and they confirmed it's a straighforward removal and the MRI is a overreach. I wouldn't ever go to him again. I found out that the place he was recommending for the MRI is connected to his office, so not sure if he is just WAYYY to careful (unnecessarily) or he's trying to make extra cash.

Excellent Doctor, great support staff. I had a torn meniscus along with arthritis in my knee. Surgery went great and I was back walking without crutches within 5 days. After 2 full weeks after surgery, the stitches were removed and no physical therapy needed! Very happy with my results and with Dr. Flak.

I saw Dr. Flak for a shattered kneecap. He performed a partial patellectomy. He was excellent at explaining my condition and what he would do to correct it. He was always patient and answered all my questions and even drew a diagram. With only 1/2 kneecap I walk fine, no limp and have 120 degree bend in my knee.

Dr. Flak helped me out after a clavicle fracture. He was excellent at explaining my condition. The surgery went well. I healed up great and almost have no scar. I would go again to him if I was ever to break anything else

Husband had a broken foot and hand. Our first appointment naturally took the most time because of xrays, exam, etc. but all the follow up visits only took about 15 minutes and that included X-rays each time. We never felt rushed, and Dr. Flak patiently answered any questions and was very thorough and easy to understand.

Terrible patient care. No bedside manner. Sarcastic and uncaring. I switched to another doctor for post operative care. Dr Flak offered none after removing the staples. He is rude and obnoxious.

Doctor wanted to get in and out without any questions from the patient. Very unprofessional person as he would roll his eyes thinking I did not see him. I couldn't say anything negative about his assistant who made up for his rude bedside manners. She went over and beyond in explanations and thoughts about the diagnosis. It was very easy to get in to see this Doctor, maybe that should have been a clue. Every aspect of the visit was superior but the Doctor himself.

I was bucked off my horse last April 2015 and broke my arm right below the ball joint. I went from not being able to lift my arm beyond a 40 degree angle to having full range of motion as if nothing ever happened within months!!! I'm able to put the injury behind me with no reminders except for the small incision...and yes, I'm back in the saddle again! :-)

How was your experience with Dr. Flak?

About Me

Care Philosophy

As an Orthopedic Surgeon, I believe that foremost I must strive to return the patient to a pre-injury level. I first focus on non-surgical methods, and use surgery only after appropriate non-operative care was initiated.
