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.

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.
