Dr. Ethan G Flaks has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

How does this guy even have a license to practice? He is extremely rude, condescending, and egotistical man with absolutely no care or compassion for his patients. He told me I was nuts when I was dealing with some anxiety issues because I asked to be put be put on an antidepressant. He quickly dismissed me. Luckily, that visit was my last. There are good, caring doctors out there; he is not one of them.

Dr. Flaks was just another rude doctor. After having 15 years of back pain, something serious is going on...where I had surgery a few years ago. Something is not right. Dr. Flaks came into the office, didn't introduce himself, was very short, as I began to explain my concern he cut me off, gave me a pain script and told me to come back in 10-14 days! Yeah it's not like this is recent. I know something is just not right, I have been dealing with this crap for so long. This doctor was rude, had no manners, didn't listen to anything I had to say and was with me for less than 5 minutes!!! I have written to the local medical board about him. This was the first time I left a doctors office in tears...all because he wouldn't listen. How is a patient supposed to have proper treatment if they can't even talk???

The overall office staff is great but Dr Flaks is a poor representation of our medical professionals in this country. He has extrememly poor communication and listening skills. Not only does he not listen to his patiens, he doesn't even look them in the eye when discussing their health issues & concerns. Why bother having the nurses take a personal history or listing the patients' complaints if you aren't going to read them? I believe it is time for retirement. This "Doctor" has no compassion for his patients at all.
