SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Dr. Flavin is excellent, exceptionally so - knowledgeable, competent, eager to address patient's problems, very good at forthrightly discussing patient's current situation and prospects.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr Flavin is always so good and helpful also on MyHealth. Wouldn't trade her for anyone she's the best

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Flavin was caring, understanding and honest about the limited options available to me during the withdrawal of Cymbalta. She respected my decisions and her support & respect of my abilities was very meaningful.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Excellent, excellent!

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

My time with Dr Flavin is always helpful and patient with me. She's seen me just after brain surgery and now updated with my recovery! She has been helpful and now she sees my recovery herself

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Flavin does not know a lot about my condition, which she readily admits. So our appointments do involve her examining me, but are more of an opportunity for me and my mother to educate and update her about my condition

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

I was concerned when Dr. Flavin recommended stopping a prescription in the first 5 minutes of the visit - first time I had seen her. She did, however, agree to a 2nd opinion from a neurologist & recommended the dr. and appointment scheduling -

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

She was great!

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I trust my three Dr. Completely

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Good. Job done! A ++.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

you get an A+

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

She is very friendly & concern with my health problems.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Absolutely love Dr. Flavin. She is knowledgeable, good sense of humor, great "bedside manner."

SHC Patient, May 2015

This was my first visit with Dr. Flavin. I have a rare medical condition, which she was not familiar with, and she freely admitted that. So this appointment was primarily for her to meet me and ask me questions, as well as to give me referrals.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

She is very enthusiastic. Some of her advice was well intentioned, but not really relevant to my current situation.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I felt a little pressed for time. They all seem to watch the time a bit.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Dr. Flavin is the best psychiatrist I have had. She is kind & caring & really listened to my questions & concerns.
