Listened and address my issues. Found the course of treatment perfect for me. Would recommend her to everyone I know. Office personal pleasant and professional.

The patient comes first with Dr. Blacksten. She reviews your records and conditions before your appointment. Orders tests to find answers and deals with the insurrance company when they deny a medicine you need. Is very current on latest treatments. Strong advocate for her patients. I'd recommend her to my family and friends.

Dr. Blacksten was knowledgeable and thorough during my annual physical exam. She exhibited a caring attitude. She addressed my concerns. She was kind and considerate during a recent visit for a wrist problem, recommending exercises before considering other therapies.
