The one time I met Dr. Blackett, he seemed fairly nice. However, his staff is another story all together. Having paperwork completed for work is a complete nightmare. I requested to have some STD paperwork completed by the staff because Dr. Blackett had taken me off work for a week. Because I decided to transfer my care to another doctor after I was released to go back to work by Dr. Blackett, his staff would not complete the paperwork. They returned the incomplete paperwork to me via the mail with no explanation as to why. When I called to inquire as to why it was returned incomplete, the front desk girl, Tonya, said that because I was transferring my care, the new doctor would need to complete the paperwork. Really, lady??? They charged my credit card $35, and when I asked about this, the same Tonya said that she had included in the envelope with the paperwork a receipt showing where they had credited back my credit card - A COMPLETE LIE!!!! There was no receipt in the envelope. This experience has been horrific. If you can avoid having to endure the incompetence of his staff, please do so!!! Go somewhere else!!!! Also, I question the thoroughness of the care of I received. I provided a urine sample every time I went for an appointment and not once did they tell me that I had a UTI. I had to go the emergency room to find out I had one.
Horrible place, been sick and throwing up for weeks, have 2 diff neseau meds and not working., been in and out of the hospital due to naseau and vomiting,.First time I had to call the on call dr he didnt call me till late that evening when I called early in the a.m. Now I was suppose to get new med to stop throwing up yesterday and they failed to call it in. Now I call the on call dr again and he refuses to call me in suppositories like i was suppose to get called in yesterday, He says go back to e.r. again. I simply cannot go to the e.r every single day and sit there for hours on end when I have a 3 year old at home also. This is the worst place I have ever been to and worst pregnancy experience.
I'VE BEEN A PATIENT OF DR. BLACKETT'S SINCE 1995. HE PERFORMED MY TUBLIGATION, RECTAL SPHINSTER, CO-PO, AND HYSTERECTOMY. EACH TIME THAT I MAY HAVE BEEN HOSPITALIZED DR. BLACKETT ALWAYS CALLED ME AT HOME TO FOLLOW UP WITH ME, AND HE ALWAYS RETURNED PHONE CALLS . DR. BLACKETT IS A CARING DOCTOR AND HE ALWAYS MAKES TIME TOO ASK WHAT ''YOUR CONCERNS ARE''. IF THERE HAPPENS TO BE A WAIT IN THE OFFICE; PEOPLE WITH RUDE COMMENTS SHOULD UNDERSTAND THAT DR. BLACKETT MAY BE RUNNING LATE FROM DELIVERING A BABY OR WHATVER MAY HAVE SUDDENLY HAPPENED.. BUT TO CLARIFY IT, THAT THIS IS A DOCTOR THAT KNOWS HIS MEDICAL PROFFESSIONALISM AND IT'S WORTH THE WAIT TO SEE A CARING DOCTOR, WHO IS TRUELY INTO HIS PATIENTS AND WORK. THANK YOU AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK DOCTOR BLACKETT AND EXCELLENT STAFF....''THUMBS UP TO YOU ALL.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
