I have very high regard for Dr. Flaum for her expertise in her field and her kind and well-informed manner in caring for me. She is explicit about what is recommended by standards of care, willing to answer all of my questions, and patient with my choices whether or not to follow the standard of care in all respects, given the risks and benefits.

Dr Flaum is an awesome Dr. It's 70 miles round trip for each appointment. There are lots of Drs closer, but I've been coming to NW for nearly 35 years. had two children and multiple surgeries there. I wouldn't chang for the world.
