Dr Flood is compassionate, understanding and offers option to dealing with chronic pain. That is amazing after years of pain and no options but an increase in opiods that no longer helped much.

She is the first Dr. that I had a video visit with. I feel very comfortable with her. She always explains her suggestions and will ask for my opinion. I have never had a 'bad' video visit with Dr. Flood.
She was compassionate and caring.
Empathic. Really listens and cares
She is an excellent doctor and makes excellent recommendations for my care.
Dr. Flood made sure that I understood any and all of the changes that she made.
One of the best doctors I've had.
Was caring and showed appropriate concern for the patient.
She’s always polite, professional and listens to her patients questions. You can tell she’s one of those physicians that puts her patients first, At the end of each video appointment she always states. That I can reach out to her at any time if I have something come up or a question.
Great doctor. Very caring & knowledgeable!
After the EMPOWER program is over, I wish I could keep her as my Pain Medicine Dr.
Dr. Flood is a very good doctor and person to run this study. This has been a real benefit to me.
Dr. Flood makes sure I understand where i'm at and where i'm going.
Very good conversation with her. I believe she is a very good physician.
Terrific doctor! Like her recommendations. She doesn’t force anything but asks if willing to try.
Pamela Flood has always been wonderful to me even when I've been difficult because I was in a lot of pain. She is so kind and understanding. I'm grateful she puts up with me.
Amazing Doctor!
Dr. Flood makes suggestions not demands. I feel like I am apart of the plan. Not just a visitor on the outside looking in. Dr. Flood encourages questions. And she makes sure that I understand the answers.
She is a very good physician and I've not had too much trouble getting everybody i this house.
Great Doctor
Dr Flood is an absolute joy to work with. Although she has more than sufficient backbone when needed, her interpersonal skills are so well developed that she rarely if ever needs to be forceful or emphatic. She is an active and accurate listener. Her opinions seem to me to be consistent and trustworthy. She is reliable and supportive. I trust her and have no hesitance in discussing with her what might be considered private or sensitive matters. I have been seeing her on a monthly (for the first year or so) and now bi-monthly basis. I would heartily refer someone looking for a pain Doctor to Pamela Flood. I feel extremely fortunate to have been assigned to her when I first entered the Empower program.
I would like to thank her for her patience, understanding and consideration.
Very good at listening and explaining everything and that helped me a lot
I thought she listened very well!!
Dr. Flood is an outstanding physician and is working hard to help get my opioid usage down. She's always prepared and has a plan in mind when we finally have our video appointment.
