I was again impressed with his candid observations and recommendations, this time regarding surgical options, outcomes and recovery.

I came to see Dr. Flanagan for a second opinion, after seeing a different orthopedic doctor for the same issue. I'm so glad that I came to see Dr. Flanagan. I felt he truly listened to my complaint, and that he cared about me as a person. Additionally he told me what was wrong and what to expect for my healing process after I had been dealing with this problem for eight months with no answers. I'm very grateful that I trusted Dr. Flanagan with my care.

Dr. Flannigan is by far the most professional,caring and compassionate doctor on my team of Baylor providers. He did my surgery 8 years ago and after not seeing him for at least 3 years ago,. He acted as If no time had passed. Very familiar with the case. We discussed options for care and yes I was very much involved in the discussion. I have could highly recommend this physician.
