Patient Comments (6)

I have had 2 knee replacement surgeries by Dr. Flynn & I am very satisfied with both. He is very up to date with his practices & does not believe in pressuring you into surgery. He takes the alternative routes first. I would highly recommend him to anyone & have already.

Reluctant to give out medication for pain. Good doctor but takes months to see him because of high case load of patients. Spends very little time with patient.
