Pain in my left foot with a swollen area on top that was hard. The first time I saw him, he gave me an injection in the area, and the injection was painless, which was my first wonderful surprise. It was a year later before the pain returned. I was NOT concerned about going back to him and getting another injection, because I couldn't even feel the first one. He, along with his staff, is very assuring and competent in his assessment and treatment. A wonderful doctor!!!!

Barbara Scott – Aug 22, 2018
Dr Blitch is an absolutely wonderful talented diagnotian & surgeon. I had reaccuring ulcer on my great toe that would not heal. I went to 2 DOZEN wound care specialists for 5 yrs to no avail.!! Finally I went to Dr Blitch, a surgeon I had gone to before, and within 20 sec of my 5 yr story, he interrupted, and said I needed arthroplasty... Finally after 5 long years I had a diagnosis & a surgical plan.! Honestly, Don’t hesitate to go to him.
