I have recently switched to Dr. Blackwell on the recommendation of my neurologist. I really am so pleased with her as well as her staff. I'm no young spring chicken and some might say set in my ways. However, it was so refreshing to have a doctor really take an interest in me and gave me all the time I needed history, problems and a plan for my medical health.
Olivia treated me for mono. i needed a letter for my college sports asking for a few basics: diagnosis, dates of treatment, recovery time. the nasty staff played all kinds of games, telling me i needed a form, not a letter. i had to fax them (they won't give email address) the proof that i needed a letter. even still, when they got it they refused to write this brief letter saying i hadn't been there in too long a time, even though i only needed the letter to refer to the time i was treated, claiming the doctor's license could be affected. absolutely ridiculous and not true. the witches in this office are evil morons on some kind of a sick power trip. i'm not done, though. these witches have to be reported and reigned in. i've reported them to OPMC, Office of Professional Misconduct, the Patient Advocate for all hospitals she's affiliated with and am now preparing my letters to the CEOs to all hospitals she's affiliated with. I suggest anyone who's been or is currently being abused by Olivia's staff do the same. The awful staff has apparently behaved this way without being held accountable for far too long, (judging my this site's reviews and Google reviews) which only makes them worse and more abusive. you don't have to take it. there are professional ethics that must be abided by. if you've been one of their victims, report them to OPMC and all hospitals that Olivia is affiliated with, which are Kenmore Mercy, Niagara Memorial Medical Center and Kaleida. there's power in numbers. take the time. do it.
