Dr Blatz is a great listener and understands pain points. For my oh-so-common lower back pain, he offered practical, non-invasive solutions and more aggressive treatment when it was warranted.

I was seeing Dr. Blatz for an ongoing issue with neck pain. He took nearly 2 years and 3 appointments to finally order an MRI to identify the true cause of my issue, which was a benign tumor growing on my spine. He failed to provide any treatment options. He allowed NO referral to speak with a spine surgeon to identify my options. He assured me he would call back after doing research and NEVER called back. DO NOT see this doctor. He will NOT provide thorough care. Seek someone else.
