    Dr. Flint is brilliant, and saved my Mother by doing the proper amputation. His bedside manners are amazing! I had complete faith in him, and I'm incredibly grateful.

    Excellent bedside manner, very professional. Showed me the xrays from ER, explained planned urgent surgery. Visited me personally in the hospital the morning after surgery and explained everything that was done including what followup is needed. Listened to my concerns and included my needs in planning care.
