"I called Dr. Flinn at midnight because I was concerned that my 7 year old's eyes had been damaged by the sun while we were skiing.  The answering service was not optimistic that he would call me back because my son was not a patient of record.  However, Dr. Flinn did called me back and was very reassuring, compassionate, and accommodating.  We were scheduled as a 7:30 emergency appointment and discovered that my son had a foreign body in his eye.  Dr. Flinn and his staff were wonderful and we avoided surgery.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
