This appointment was a year follow up. I asked Dr. Flanagan if I could do some additional rehab to build up further strength in my arm/shoulder. Without hesitation he wrote the prescription. That meant a lot to me that he understood the need. I would always, always recommend this Doctor! From his ability as a surgeon, (a reverse shoulder replacement) to his follow through and his support staff. Their caring, explanations and concerns were exceptional.

This was a follow-up to a visit when my arm was so sore that Dr. Flanigan could not evaluate, but gave me a shot which relieved the symptoms. I was hoping to get a more complete assessment on this visit, but was just advised to return if the symptoms reappeared.

Dr. Flanigan is truly special. He fixed my torn bicep in Jan, and my wife's rotator cuff in April. When I had questions about MY shoulder, there was no question whom to see. He's incredible, and the entire staff very well trained!
