Dr. FLINT is the best! Drove an hour just so my son can have the best health care with our family beliefs and choices remaining intact. Thank you Dr. Flint for making a difference.

My kids had their first appointments today with Dr Flint! We drove from Pekin but when you know your getting the absolute best care, a little drive is very worth it! He asked more than once if there was anything I wanted to discuss. He listened and responded to everything even while my kids (6 and 2) are being loud and getting restless! So glad we made the switch! Very nice and helpful staff!!
