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 nearly 10 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 young, very active children.
Dr Flanagan’s practice is currently full and is not accepting new insurance or cash pay patients. He is still accepting new Nextera Healthcare members.
