Patient Reviews

  • You answered the phone – no recording. Everyone at this office was kind (we need that when we’re in pain). I called to ask a question and Ray promptly returned my call with caring and complete answers. The billing department was fabulous and helpful. Dr. Flint is great! From start to finish Flagstaff Bone and Joint made me feel cared for and cared about.

  • Long drive – well worth the trip for therapy & Dr. Care. Dr. Flint was excellent, compassionate and I feel he did a very good job.  Ariel is great! Very good at helping get past the physical & mental trauma.

    – Donna

  • The operation and following rehab were both top-notch. I have almost 100% use of my shoulder and arm, which I didn't have before the operation. I can even sleep on my right side now, again which I could not do prior to the operation. I silently thank Dr. Flint almost every day of my life, and I recommend Flagstaff Bone & Joint to all my friends.

  • Last October, I fell while walking my Aussie puppy and broke my left wrist. Dr. Flint was my surgeon for the repair. The surgery went very well and recovery was aided by the expert physical therapy from Ariel Coffey. I have recovered most of my range of motion with no issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Flint and Ms. Coffey to anyone needing this type of surgery.
