Dr. Blodgett is the ABSOLUTE BEST doctor of ANY specialty that I have ever met, and I have seen a lot of doctors of a lot of different specialties because of my Multiple Sclerosis which is VERY hard to diagnose. I didn't want to believe that I had MS for quite some time and FINALLY when I had the pleasure of meeting Dr.Blodgett he was the one and ONLY person that made me see the truth, that I do in fact have MS and that I do NEED to be on treatment for it. If it wasn't for him I don't know what I would believe at this point! I would personally reccomend Dr.Blodgett to ANYONE that needs to see a GREAT ophthalmologist because he cares about you as an individual and is in NO HURRY and takes his time with you no matter how busy he may be!
