I'm a nurse at a local hospital. When I found out I had to have back surgery this is who the ortho team recommended me to. He is very funny and a great doctor. I appreciated him being upfront with me with statistics and outcome of my procedure. Not only is he a great surgeon, but he has great bedside manner (and that's hard to come by sometimes). Im post surgery now, I'd hands down choose him again anyday. He not only fixed me, he gave me my life back. I can finally walk normal again.

Terrific spine physician with calm, friendly and efficient communication skills. Dr. Flanum's positive style coupled with patient and thorough listening skills, definitely alleviated my elderly Mother's anxiety and discomfort. He addressed ALL of Mom's needs before and after surgery, including comfort, extended care and the progression of wellness. We appreciated patient education and information that helped the family prepare for a long rehab recovery. Thanks Dr. Flanum!

Was referred to him by Veterans Choice and he didn't do anything for me. While I was in his office he asked his nurse what my insurance was which is VA after she told him who my insurance was the visit was over. He then referred me back to a previous doctor. I'm in excruciating pain daily he recommended therapy and to get steroids which I have had three times and it hasn't helped. I have sciatica which is a pinch nerve in my back and Dr. Flanum didn't care after he found out my insurance was VA
