Called Dr. Flanagan's office direct with intense pain from torn rotator cuff. He agreed to see me the same day after primary care provider refused to refer saying no orthopedic surgeons would see me because of coronavirus restrictions. I received a comprehensive workup, detaile diagnosis and treatment plan along with a cortisone shot which has greatly eased the pain. Great experience with a doctor who was willing to help after failure of my internist to make any effort to help a patient in pain.

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.
