Review of Dr. Blair

- in Pocatello, ID |

I had back surgery by Dr. Blair and everything is working again. I am so pleased. I can walk without pain and that in itself is a real blessing. He is an incredible man. I am so thankful and grateful for his skills and in giving me my life back. Thank you Dr. Benjamin Blair Sincerely Christopher J. Walton

Review of Dr. Wathne

-Idaho falls idaho |

Had a hip replaced in 2012. I now have one leg a lot longer than the other. Doctor who replaced my other hip tried to even them out as much as possible. Was told his PA did the closing of my surgery. Now I have damage to the muscles from my knee to hip. Office staff in charge of scheduling did not inform me as to how long to take blood thinner and ended up taking it way too long. Office staff was very good. Would not recommend for hip replacement.

Review of Dr. Blair

- in Pocatello, ID |

Very personal and smart with myself and was willing to answer questions about his background and my own procedure (laminectomy). I was new to the area so I was concerned about this operation and he proved that he is a competent sucessful doctor and surgeon. The local physical therapists and surgical staff like his abilities and outlook. The surgical staff said he is very efficient. I would recommend him to a future patient.

Explains everything in a way even young patients understand what is going on, knows what he is talking about and will work you to avoid surgery.

Review of Dr. Wathne

- in Portland, OR |

He said he couldn't guarantee that repairing my trashed rotator cuff would work and recommended a shoulder replacement. I decided to try the repair anyway. He did the job, it worked and is still working perfectly 4 years later. Let's hear it for OEM parts! Followup was great, too.

Review of Dr. Blair


Dr. Blair ran expensive tests to try to find the cause of my lower lumbar/sciatic nerve pain. He refused to do anything to treat my pain while making me wait on 2 1/2 months for very expensive diagnostic tests. When the diagnostics couldn't find the cause he just referred me to Dr. Zoe (pain specialist) who is the worst doctor I have ever had. She refuses to take my pain seriously because the diagnostics could not find the cause. Refer me to a bad doctor you are responsible for my poor care too.
