December 30, 2016


December 21, 2016

I have already recommended Dr. Flynn to another person even though the location is out of the way for both of us. Given my experience with him so far, I consider it worth the mild inconvenience of the clinic relative to my home/work

October 21, 2016

I will never go back

October 21, 2016


October 17, 2016

September 23, 2016


September 10, 2016

I felt like doctor Flyn didn't read about my hospital stay til he was in the room. it took over an hour to make an appointment tent for a scan of my kidney.

August 31, 2016

very good

August 25, 2016

so far so good

July 18, 2016

Dr. Flynn is an awesome Dr. I really like his explanation of all that goes on with my care.

June 30, 2016

I was lying down on the table when Dr. Flynn walked in. He didn't go to the computer. He took a chair and listened very intently was I was going through. I thought I'd need an x-ray, MRI and all that. He didn't think (at least at this point) I needed anything more than to rest my back and take it easy. I liked the more conservative approach. He prescribed some medications to try. He examined my back. I thought he was quite thorough with the exam. Asked if I had questions and to let him know if I had concerns, to let him know. He's a great doctor.

June 13, 2016

I realize Dr Flynn is just as frustrated as I am. However, I feel like I am being pawned off to someone else.

June 08, 2016

Dr. Flynn is an amazing doctor. I have already recommended him to several friends.

May 19, 2016

I was referred to my cardiologist for some questions.

April 26, 2016

March 17, 2016

dr flynn was very concerned about what is going on in my life right now which made me fell really good

March 10, 2016

Doctor Michael Flynn is amazing! Immediately made me feel at ease & totally comfortable talking about my issues. He's so passionate and even gave me reference links so I could find more information about my concerns. You can tell he loves his work & it makes such a huge difference! I'm definitely keeping him as my Primary Care Physician!

October 04, 2015


September 14, 2015

Dr. Flynn has been excellent helping me find the problem. He could have just written my illness off as a bad flu and left it at that, but he went above and beyond and ordered additional tests. And I love that I can contact him through My Chart to ask any questions.

August 31, 2015

dr. flynn is such a caring person and a fabulous doctor.

July 29, 2015

we love dr. Flynn

July 02, 2015

the staff seems very good at following through about contacting me when leaving a message for the Dr. I do wish that the referral to a get into the cardiovascular center would not take 4 weeks to get an appointment with a specialist. That seems a little extreme to me.

June 23, 2015

Since there was a medical student present it felt like he was listening a little less and trying to go by the book on some of the things we discussed. Not as good a discussion as usual.

June 23, 2015

I love Doctor Flynn. He is compassionate, caring and comforting. He listens to me and respects me and understands that I know my own body. He is the modern Doc Cassidy.

May 19, 2015

Dr. Michael Flynn provides excellent care.

May 02, 2015

very good

March 24, 2015

Dr. Flynn was condescending and impersonal. He lacks any empathy or compassion and should not be in the health care industry. He didn't even ask me any questions about other symptoms that may indicate a secondary infection.

March 21, 2015

He was helpful and thorough.

March 17, 2015

very good very caring

Dr. Michael Flynn is one of the best doctors I've had. I appreciate his willingness to listen and understand unique personalities and circumstances. He and I work very well together to keep me healthy. He also trusts me to know my own body and what is correct for me. That means a great deal!

December 27, 2014

Dr. Flynn is a very nice doctor. He is my husband doctor. I would recommend him to any of my friends if they have the same coverage. He has been very friendly and concern about my granddaughter's health. That is really nice to see a doctor that cares. Not too many of them around.

April 13, 2014

I talked to the doctor about pain in my hips and back while sleeping. He did a cursory check and that was the end of that. Nothing was discussed about treatment, advise of what to do or anything else. It was just dismissed.

April 10, 2014

January 19, 2014

it was a good experience

January 14, 2014

Dr. Flynn was great with my son and made me feel like no question was a stupid one. As a first time mom I know some were silly but he expressed genuine concern for all of them and answered my questions politely and in detail that I could understand.

December 21, 2013

He wasn't sure what the problem was so referred me to another doctor for further care, which was good.

December 13, 2013

October 28, 2013

great care and provider

October 18, 2013

The main reason for coming in was to renew my prescription medications. I got the wrong dosage for one of the meds.

October 01, 2013

Rather than talking to me frankly about my concerns and asking me questions that show he is engaged in the conversation, it often seems like he is just brushing them aside.

September 25, 2013

very good.the best doctor, He listen and ask me questions.concern just makes you feel good.

September 24, 2013

My quality of care there is exellent

September 23, 2013

Dr. Flynn is great

September 11, 2013

My PCP moved, and I needed a medication refill. However, no one told me that I would need to see a new doctor before I could get a refill. This resulted in a lapse of my medication. However, when I did make an appointment, Dr. Flynn was very professional and helpful. I only wish someone had simply told me that I needed an appointment. Otherwise, everything was lovely, as usual.

September 02, 2013

Doctor didn'tseem concerned about my concerns or feelingsabout my health pr oblems at all

April 19, 2013

My physician and his staff are both amazing..if they weren't then I would be there.

April 17, 2013

very professional, competent, and respectful, and not insensitive, but not generally did not seem compassionate or empathetic. I am sure that is due, in part, to his workload. Seemed tired and very busy. Seemed exasperated with explaining things to me, probably related to my difficulty comprehending the info, due to my illness.

March 12, 2013

The Dr, is caring He answers questions and explains health issues.

February 27, 2013

I receive the best care from Dr Flynn and the nurses specially Duffy

October 24, 2012

I was very happy with Dr. Flynn's performance! He recognized me as a Massage Therapist and knew that I was familiar with the type of injury, and the area of the rotator cuff, but made sure that I was on the same page as him. :) He was very courteous, and quick, and specific. THANKS!!

August 14, 2012

I've seen Dr. Flynn on many occasions, and have never had an unpleasant visit

July 31, 2012

So impressed with the physician and staff that I have changed my primary care to Westridge.

January 31, 2012

My usual doctor did not have time to see me so I decided to try a new doctor and I told him that the urgent care said that they give up on me and as soon as I said that he said what would you like us to do ma'am there is nothing more we can do, I asked him if he could give me anything to help me sleep because I have been so sick for the past 2 months I can not sleep well at all and I am very weak he said nope there is nothing we can reccomend or give you, I thought this was very rude of him.
