Patient Comments (1)
Lowell, IN |
I had emergency open heart surgery in 2001. Dr. Blakeman saved my life, for which I will be forever grateful. My blockages were extensive, and I had what was known as "the widow maker." Because of the extreme urgency of my surgical needs, he rearranged his entire day to do my surgery and therefore saved my life. There was no Health Grades back then, otherwise I would have left the same type of review as I am today. Thank you Dr. Blakeman.
