    The doctor himself and nurse are great. The billing manager Burt is horrible. She can't keep track of what Aetna has paid and also overbills the insurance contract agreed price and tries to collect it by sending threatening letters with a late fee. When I tried to resolve this issue on a 3 way call she screamed at myself and the Aetna rep. I have paid my account in full. I luckily have check numbers from the insurance company, EOBs and paid my copays through my HSA account.

    My unneccessarily awful experience: I transferred to a new ob, but wasn't getting medical records transferred though I tried for 3 months! Was told I needed to speak to office manager "Bert" who then told me, that , because she has the right to, she was going to bill me $50 to send the records. "please don't send records if you are going to bill them." I said. She replied, " I am going to send them and then I am going to send YOU the bill."click. hung up on me. Save time and grief! go ELSEWHERE.

    Dr. Blackburn is great...however his staff is very condescending and rude! They don't like to make anything easy for the patient and they're lazy.
