    This so called doctor was absolutely horrible. I went to him for help and he belittled me and never even examined me! So I have NO answers to what's going on and to top it all off he called my best friend fat. He also cussed through the the visit and made me feel like I was stupid. He is a worthless good for nothing doctor that should not be practicing. If I could I would give ZERO stars.

    Dr. Bledsoe has always been extremely professional and thorough. His nurse and the office staff have always been extremely professional and kind as well. I trust Dr. Bledsoe and would highly recommend him.

    My daughter was examined by Bledsoe Jr. She was scared so I went to hold her hand and he screamed at me to sit down! Complete jerk. He belittled me the whole time. I would give him a minus star because he doesn't deserve one.

    If I could, I would submit 0 stars! This so called Doctor took it upon himself to not only belittle me but went as far to say that everything I've went through for the past 12 years was because of my weight! He used to be a caring doctor when I had used him previously many times. I don't know why he is so heartless now. He shouldn't be a doctor.
