Care Philosophy

My approach to treating patients

I believe in meeting patients' individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle. Most musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by nonsurgical techniques; surgery is just one treatment option.

I work to develop a partnership with my patients. On my part, this begins with listening. One of the most important things I need to know is how the physical problem affects my patient's life. I develop a dialogue, through which my patients understand the diagnostic process, their own unique problem, their treatment choices, and the recovery process. Patients help to guide and direct the diagnostic and treatment activities.

I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That's why I explain every step of the diagnostic process. Next, I want my patients to understand their condition, how it developed, and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem. When we consider treatment alternatives, I present a realistic outlook on the results we can achieve. I'll also be frank about any risks that might be involved. It is important to compare the pros and cons of surgical versus nonsurgical options.

My goal is to handle each and every patient visit with care and proficiency. It is important to me that our doctor-patient relationship is open and honest. It is my responsibility to make sure patients are well informed about their conditions and multiple choices of treatment. My professional staff and I will also provide you with educational materials in print or on-line formats that will enhance your understanding of your condition.

Dr. Flint is personable, professional, and a good communicator. His bedside manner is excellent as he listens to your concerns with interest. He removed a needle from my foot -- and it healed so well! I would highly recommend Dr. Flint. I trust Dr. Flint so much that he will be performing another surgery next month on my arm. He is a wonderful guy!
in Bakersville, NC |
Repaired a badly shattered wrist resulting from a farm accident several years ago. Broke same wrist again recently and the current ortho surgeon had huge praise for the complicated repair done by Dr Flint previously.
in East Ellijay, GA |
After Bilateral Total Knee Replacement in 2013 I have recommended Dr.Flint to three or four friends who also sing his praises. Dr.Flint and his staff are professional and friendly. See my EXCELLENT answers that follow on this page. . Been back to Dr. Flint's practice with a foot problem and a shoulder problem and by following his recommended exercises and physical therapy I'm doing well.
