My mother taken by ambulance after falling at the facility where she lives. I met her in ER, as ambulance was leaving. Long story short, we were there almost 5 hours. The ER I was told suppose to "put the patient in gown for full exam." This never happened and I was told just recently the the doctor was James Blake snice being investigated. . He never examined her while we were there, her socks and shoes never removed, and send home in pain in her ankle. Just told to check in with family doctor. After a week, called family doctor, she saw the bruises and swelling, ( she could not put on socks or shoes, wore slippers until family doctor examined her.) My elderly mother, age 86 sent home with 2 fractures. She was never fully examined, shoes and socks never taken off, just had shoulders and head and hip examined. Not a "full exam in gown." Sent home with 2 fractures in ankle. Couldn't walk, without difficulty, had to get her a walker. Family doctor asked who examined her sending her home like this. Had to see orthopedic surgeon and in a cast 8 weeks, then therapy, due to Dr. Blake's not caring enough to examine her in person the proper way. The case is being examined. At 86, bones don't heal fast and easy. This Dr. Blake never spoke to me, at all. I cannot recomend him at all.
