Worst doctor's visit I've ever had.

I had such high hopes for this doctor after reading several good reviews, but this visit was a waste of time and money for me. I wanted to be tested for a hormone imbalance, and brought a list of symptoms with me. I was told that since I conceived this year, nothing could be done until next year (even though it was a miscarriage). I would have thought an endocrinologist would have taken blood work, not only because I'm trying to conceive, but just for my general health, physically and mentally. I was also told that my insurance was no good, even though Blue Cross Blue Choice is listed on the website. Maybe that insurance company doesn't pay him enough.

Excellent Doctor with "Good Old Fashion" Bedside Manners

I have been with Dr. Blake for over 15 years and he has performed several procedures ranging from both routine and emergency. I describe him as having the "old fashion" bedside manner because he takes time with you, he makes sure that you understand everything and he not only is concerned about your physical state, but he is concerned about you as a person. He listens to you! I pray for long life and health because I don't know how I could find another doctor to measure up to him. He is the first I ever felt comfortable to perform surgery on me. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Great Doctor

Dr. Blake is a great doctor. He is very knowledgeable, compassionate, and caring. I don't blame the wait time in the office where he worked on him. The staff there was incompetent, to say the least. I highly recommend Dr. Blake.
