I like Dr. Blecker very much but his staff was terrible. It`s very difficult to get referrals or any kind of orders done in a timely manner. When I call to see if anything was done it usually isn`t & the indifference is obvious. Would like to stay with the Dr. but the staff makes that difficult.

He is certainly competent but sometimes difficult to understand. The problem with this office is the front end. There is no compassion, flexibility, or willingness to accommodate patients with an appointment for a newly arisen issue. I've even been told to go to an urgent care center. Then what the hell do I need this office for? When he is not there the whole place falls apart. I'm not sure who is running the asylum!
