"Dr. Flanagan "scoped" my right knee. I did all of the pre-op paper work on line so check in was quick. I was taken back shortly after arriving. The staff told me everything they were doing and what was going to happen and who would do it. Dr. Flanagan came by and talked to me. After the surgery, Dr. Flanagan talked to my wife and told what they had done and answered her questions. Recovery and discharge was relatively easy and painless.  

My thanks to Dr. Flanagan and his folks and the Fayetteville Ambulatory staff for all of their help and assistance." – Ricky F.
