I could state how amazing a surgeon Dr Brody Flanagin is but that has been extremely documented and stated countless times. What I want to comment on is the character of Doctor Flanagin which isn't listed in all the information that is provided online about him.He didn't treat me like a patient but as a person he knew and cared about and wanted to help: which he did. I'm sure there are other great surgeons who equal his craft but I think you would be hard-pressed to fine one equal to his character as a person
