Clint Flanagan, MD is Board Certified in Family Medicine, a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. Dr. Flanagan has 14 years experience as an ER physician and maintains certificates in Advanced Cardiac and Advanced Trauma Life Support. He completed medical school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center then went on to residency at St Mary’s Family Medicine Program in Grand Junction, Colorado. He’s a diplomate of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Dr. Flanagan is eager to share his knowledge with patients to help them improve their quality of life. “I appreciate the courage it takes for patients to speak with me about aspects of their health they would like to improve. I strive to facilitate open, reliable communication where patients feel relaxed and at ease in an environment conducive to extreme trust and comfort.”
Dr. Flanagan will help you identify functional imbalances in your physical, hormonal, mental, and nutritional systems, and put the pieces together for you. “I’m passionate about pro-active, preventative medical care and feel it’s my responsibility to guide patients in the right direction. It’s important my patients view me as sincere and trustworthy. Too often our healthcare system practices reactive medicine. I’m a firm believer in optimizing nutrition and exercise rather than focusing on prescriptions as an automatic solution. While medicine has its role at times, too often non-prescription plans aren’t addressed. I want patients to achieve their optimal health and well-being, as naturally as possible.”
Dr. Flanagan enjoys the Colorado lifestyle with his wife and three children
Verified Patient Reviews
Clint gets it. Former Military Doc that cares about his patients, is pragmatic about medicine and genuinely seems to be a cut above the rest of the crowd.
First visit with Dr Flanagan. I like the fact that we got straight to the reasons for my visit, Great sense of humor but also very professional. He is top notch so far. The staff that he works with are on the ball when it comes to patient relations. Great experience. By the way i hate going to the Dr.
Dr. Flanagan was very professional, and very down to earth at the same time. He addressed all of my questions, and explained his plan of action to move forward with my health care concerns.
The best visit I've had to a doctor's office in a long time, perhaps ever. Very thorough and attentive. I look forward to my follow up visit.
My visit exceeded (by far) my expectations. Dr. Flanagan spent a lot of time with me truly getting to know me, details about my lifestyle, and what is most important to me. I kept rushing as I've been conditioned to do with doctors and I found Dr. Flanagan slowing me down constantly to ask questions and ensure that he had a really good sense of who I am, what some of my health challenges are, my history, and how to best treat me. His bedside manner is one of the very best I have ever come across. In addition, his staff was very professional, courteous, and pleasant. While it would seem this should be a given in any professional environment, it has not been the experience I have had at other medical offices in the area. All around, I am very pleased that I found Dr. Flanagan and would highly recommend him as a doctor and his overall practice given the professionalism and kindness of his staff.
I really appreciate Dr. Flammigan. He is very friendly and professional. Makes you feel very comfortable.
Dr. Flanagan is truly the best around. He always takes time to listen to me. I always feel like my treatment is a team effort.
Excellent, efficient and caring. LOVE the use of tech, makes pesky things like Dr. appts easy to schedule and get done.
Genuinely invested in patient well-being!
Overall a great visit. There was some wait time, but he apologized and spent a good amount of time with us. We went there for a well-visit check-up for our daughter and, even though he is not a pediatrician proper, he does have plenty experience (ER, family practice). He reviewed the information we brought in, asked some history, and examined our daughter. What was really nice is that, although she has been to many doctors and has anxiety with going to the doctor, she was really comfortable with Dr. Flanagan. I also appreciated the holistic approach to medicine, giving us alternatives to try out for her condition. Additionally, since we moved from out of state and our daughter has been followed by specialists, he is going to help us coordinate with the appropriate specialists in the area. This really helps remove the stress from trying to find specialists yourself when you're unfamiliar with the area. I will absolutely bring my daughter back to see Dr. Flanagan, as well as book appointments for the rest of my family.
Dr. Flanagan is a great health caretaker. I like that his practice is personal and modern. His passion for health is expressed in mannerisms and conversations. I highly recommend experiencing the passion for better healthy living practices provided.
Dr. F seems to genuinely care about his patients and is enthusiastic about my treatment
It was a great 1st visit, I really appreciate that Dr Flanagan listens and treats holistically first. Once my tests come back I am eager to see what results we can come up with together to make sure i am in optimal health. Thanks
Dr. Flanagan takes the time to listen. Never feel rushed. Knowledgeable. Glad we switched to this practice.
I've never had a doctor spend so much time listening to all the symptoms I'm experiencing + ask questions to understand them better. Not only did he take me/the symptoms seriously, he listened to what I thought was causing the problems based on experimentation. He is a functional medicine doctor, so he had lots of natural things I could try to help with underlying issues outside of medication. Not only is that cheaper, but it's not someone throwing different medication at you to "try" to mask a symptom. He takes a much more holistic approach than most primary care doctors. Along with that, he gave me some websites/books to read to start understanding the mental/emotional side of health. Plus the nurses (Karen and Danielle) were SO nice!
As a working nurse in critical care for over 10 years, I know a good Doc when I meet one. Clint brings to the table an open mind coupled with great listening skills. I never feel rushed when discussing my concerns. Clint furthermore is not the kind of MD with the "take two of these and call me in the morning" philosophy. I sense he's vastly open to exploring all remedies in the process of resolving a patient's concern(s). His knowledge base and subsequent treatment modalities I feel are built upon addressing the entire human being, even if those modalities don't endorse western medicine. Thanks Dr. Clint for raising the bar in Family Practice Medicine!
He was great
Personable, friendly, deliberate. Was never rushed, we discussed much more in depth functional medicine than I have ever experienced.
He is a very thorough physician that really cares for his patients and explains everything to you in plain English.
Dr. Flanagan is a transformational physician with a holistic approach to heath care. At 52 my health is at a lifetime high thanks to guidance from Dr Flanagan. Highly Recommended.
Dr. Flannigan is a very knowledgeable and practical doctor. The first time I visited, I was having some troubles with sleeping and nausea. He referred me for a blood test and knew exactly what to look for: the problem was solved quickly. Today I went in with a fear that I had torn my groin. Little to my knowledge, but lucky for me, Dr. Flannigan has plenty of experience with sports medicine and thus a vast understanding of these types of injuries. I have just recently started seeing him, but I will continue to do so gladly.
Personable, good service. Dr. Flanagan seems like an excellent doctor who stresses preventive medicine, holistic, healthy lifestyles.
Dr Flanagan always gives me the time I need, addresses my diagnostic and therapeutic concerns - and does it all with clear and helpful information. He always provides valuable direction and actionable specifics. Also, I greatly appreciate that he has an eye on costs and works to provide ways to contain them along the way. I could not ask for a better experience than with Dr Flannagan. And by the way, I myself am a medical professional. I am a Physician Assistant and have been practicing medicine for nearly two decades. So, I see what he is doing both as a patient and from the other side - as a medical provider. I highly recommend him and his entire office staff.
Very easy to talk to and for someone who rarely goes to the doc it was very comfortable. Definitely someone I would recommend and I look forward to being more regular from now on.
Clint was very thoughtful and thorough about my health, he listened to what I needed and made some great recommendations.
Dr. Flannigan is always willing to listen to your views and thoughts and then suggest treatment accordingly. He understands most people do not live in a perfect world and recommends the best advice to receive the best results.
I am a new patient to Dr. Flanagan after 10+ years with another PMO/PPO service provider. I am extremely pleased with this change. Dr. Flanagan and his team treat me as an individual - not a number in the system as was my prior experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Flanagan and wished I had made this change years ago.
Excellent primary care physician than is totally dialed-in with the latest advances in medical care, health monitoring and new models of care delivery. I am a medical professional personally, I give Clint a strong recommend.
I was impressed that I had the doctor's undivided attention for almost an hour! That never happens anymore, but that is the way that it should be! I have been searching for a doctor who will treat me holistically and not just for an acute condition/illness once every other year. I finally found it with Dr. Flanagan and Nexterra. I truly believe that Dr. Flanagan has my best interests at heart and cares about me and my health in all areas of my life. I cannot say enough good things. I strongly recommend Nexterra and Dr. Flanagan to anyone.
Seemed to be a very enthusiastic/helpful doctor from my limited experience. Spent more time with me than any other doctor I've seen before.
Great doctor. Knowledgeable and thorough.
Always very throughal and in depth knowledge allpied and relayed!
Dr. Flanagan and his staff are the best G.P. I have ever experienced. His knowledge is extensive and he takes the time to listen to your concerns and to treat the whole person. Highly recommend!
VERY pleased with discussion today and course of action.
Best doctor I have ever had by far. He actually cares about me and has exceptional knowledge of men's health issues, especially those of us over 40. I am honored to have access to such exceptional talent and such an obviously caring person. Seriously by far the best doctor I have ever seen.
This was my second visit. Dr. Flanagan again was personable and understanding. I highly recommend!
The best primary care provider anyone could ask for. Listens very well and was able to help me. I would recommend this doctor for my family members.
Always a great experience. Dr Flanagan is the best doctor I ever had the good luck to be treated by.
Thorough - listened to my concerned and offered various options for my treatment.
Dr Flannigan is very hurried in his manner and while he clearly knows a lot I felt at times his manner was a bit condescending. He is difficult to follow in his recommendations. I felt a little confused about the medications.
Really appreciate this doc's data driven approach to treatment.
Great Dr. Very knowledgable, and kind.
Great visit! Got all my questions answered,all my issues addressed.
he was very personable and I liked that he thinks in preventative measures rather than fixing a current problem
Dr. Flangan is the best Dr. I have ever had. He really cares about and ever patient he sees.
Dr. Flanagan was excellent!! He was very easy to talk to, and eager to listen.
As a new patient, I appreciated the time and depth Dr. Flanagan spent explaining not just the treatment, but why that treatment was best for me personally. Dr. Flanagan was kind, approachable, and seemingly very competent. He was empathetic to the problems I was having and really made sure I was on a path to healing. I highly recommend him to anybody new to the area or anybody looking for a new, caring family physician.
This was the most pleasant doctors experience I have ever had. Dr. Flanagan spent the necessary time needed to thoroughly go over everything and answer any and all questions I had. He is amazing, very knowledgeable and down to earth.
I will be back! What a caring, nice doctor and staff! Everyone made me feel welcome and was not only professional but kind too. I really like how Dr Clint takes an integrative approach to wellness and health, and I love the fact that he has experience in so many areas including working in the ER for years. This is the first time in years that I went in for a checkup and did not end up leaving confused or without any of my questions answered. Quite the opposite: he had answers for all my questions and made suggestions regarding all the issues I have had.
Dr Flanagan cares about you as a person, not a number. He takes the time to learn about you, hear your concerns, and really cares. He will come up with a plan to help you succeed with your healthcare, and tailor any needs to you as a person. I highly recommend going to see the Dr. Flanagan!!
Dr. Flanagan was wonderful. My 7-year-old son loved him.
It was an excellent experience. Dr. Flanagan treated me like a person and he listened to what i had to say. Very intellegent and innovative. Thank you.
It was easy to book an appointment and I barely had to wait for Dr. Flanagan to come in. The assisting nurses were also incredibly nice and helpful. I last went in for a knee injury and since he has 10 years experience as an ER doctor, he was very knowledgable about sports injury as well, and very genuinely nice and caring. Great guy. I'd highly recommend.
Great no issues
Very informative and relaxing
I haven't been to the doctor in a very long time. Dr. Flanagan amazed me! The entire office seems to genuinely care about their patients and their well being. It was so refreshing to see a doctor that cares.
First visit but very pleasant and concerned with my problem.
Dr. Flanagan is focused on preventative health, which is one reason I chose him from ZocDoc. At my first appointment, I appreciated that he introduced himself to me; told me about his medical career in ER and primary care, and his theories on health (prevention 1st & more aligned toward natural options before automatically jumping to an Rx). He was kind, sensitive and non-judgmental. As a nurse and patient, I believe he made the appropriate referrals I needed, took the appropriate actions during the visit and recommended the right followup. Would see again and hope to make Dr. Flanagan my primary care physician. [Dr. Flanagan also let me know that he is the business owner of his clinic(s) and to let him know if I ever encounter any issue with his staff or the clinic--very personal businessman/doctor].
All the Doctors at North Vista are the best. They truly care about each person they see. I would never go anywear else.
Waited well over 30 min. There was no reason to wait so long. The office was not busy at all. When it was my turn, I was rushed. Getting tired of every time I go, I'm asked if I am on their plan or employer. I've noticed the quality of care and caring has gone for those not on the plan. I'm sorry, but the plan does not work for our family. Be careful how big you get...I've been with you since Carbon Valley...things are changing and not necessarily for the good
He is excellent, very focused on health, and nutrition, very compelling manner and easy to chat with about the challenges. He is very bright and very compassionate.
Dr Flanagan is the absolute best doctor ever. He is very patient and truly cares about his patients 100%. He really "gets it" and believes in healing the body as a whole and not prescribe medications for everything. I drive 20+ miles just to see him.
Comfortable and Friendly. Great staff upfront as well.
Great Dr. He had great recommendations for me.
I really look forward to having Dr. Flanagan as my doctor. He seems to have a variety of resources for treating things. He explains things very well, has a comfortable environment, and a nice office. His assistant was very nice as well.
It was THE best doctors office experience in my adult life!!!1
Great office staff and visit everyone is very professional. Always takes time to answer questions.
I like his preventative maintenance approach to health.
Very thorough, professional and personable. Focus is on well-being and preventative care. Front and back office staff is fantastic.
The best doctor office visit I have ever had. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Very comfortable visit and loved the relaxed atmosphere inside the "exam room."
An excellent and helpful visit. Dr. Flanagan was very professional, and easy to talk to. He took time to address my concerns and I will definitely return to his office in future. Highly recommended.
Informative, up to date and personal.
Personal attentiion up to date advise.
Very encouraging to find a doctor who is so focused on the patient.
