Dr Blake on 10/10/17 did a total hip replacement and I can’t thank her enough. Dr Blake always smiling and caring . I will say Dr Blake said she would take care of me and she did.. I suffered with excruciating pain for years and finally it knocked me flat on my butt couldn’t do anything at the end.I have no pain and sleeping through the night without waking everyone up with the groaning I was doing. Please if you want a orthopedic Dr who knows her stuff Dr Blake is just a phone call away .

I think that Dr. Blake is wonderful and she has one of the best bedside manners I have experienced in some time. Dr. Blake is kind, compassionate and her integrity speaks for itself as does her reputation. I give her a 5 ?? rating across the board!

Dr. Blake is terrific. She is highly qualified, has great bedside manner, is reassuring and pleasant. She performed hip replacement surgery for my mother and her reassuring manner and pleasant disposition helped my mother get through it. She and her staff took time to answer questions and explain things in laymen terms.

I recently, at a relatively very young age, was not able to walk due to a diseased and failed hip joint. As a single mother and a nurse there was no way I could continue to be disabled. I did extensive research on education and training and success rates of orthopedic surgeons here in my home Ithaca as well as Syracuse and Rochester, and based on that chose Dr. Deidre Blake. I am now 5 weeks post-op and not only walking but dancing. My pain and fear is transformed to joy and I am so grateful

Dr. Blake is a good practitioner but the practice leaves much to be desired. Calling requires patience since you will be on hold for quite a long time. It is basically the best game in town so if you want decent care you'll put up with the bureaucratic rigmarole.

Although not typical with knee survey, I did not experience any knee pain following surgery for a torn meniscus. Dr Blake did a great job.
