in Dade city Florida |
Dr flinkenstein is an amazing, caring professional. Even though he was in New York for a short time, his positive treatment after my years of pain and all the rest of RA symptoms and unsuccessful Drs, dr flinkenstein helped me immensely. Recently I have moved to Florida and am fortunate to have been referred to another wonderful RA specialist. Dr flinkenstein got me on the right track and made my daily life much easier I shall always be thankful for his care.
