What People Say About Dr. Geoffrey Blatt, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Blatt was warm and friendly, easy to talk with and seemed to care about me and my condition when I saw him. I was originally set up with a Wednesday appointment, and was disappointed to learn a day or so ahead of that appointment that the doctor had to reschedule due to emergency. Then I was pleased to learn that my #1 spot on the waiting list resulted in a reschedule for Friday of the same original week. Very fortunate for me.

I found my experience with Dr. Blatt to be very professional. I was referred to him by another physician. He listened to what I had to say. He gave me his opinion as to my next course of treatment with my previous pain doctor and scheduled a followup appointment once that appointment is finished to see how things are progressing. He also is checking on a previous problem I had to see if there is anything that can be done to make it better. Overall he is thorough and concerned about my health

Dr. Blatt is the BEST orthopedic surgeon there is. Wouldn't let anyone else ever touch my back. He does care about his patients and always takes plenty of time to question/examine them. He's the best.

Excellent surgeon. Great bedside manner. He listens. His support staff is the best. We felt comfortable and confident. He needs more wall space to hang all his diplomas, certificates. accolades and patents.

Dr. Blatt was recomended to me by Dr. Pang from Rockhill Ortho Specialists. I respect Dr. Pangs opinion very much. My family Dr. Mckee also stated that I was working with fine Doctor. I grew more confident in taking care my neck. Dr. Blatt,s nurse helped with my confidence in Dr. Blatt. A great office staff and appreciate in my medical questions for the pre-op.

I saw Dr. Blatt to get a second opinion for cervical disc issues. He reviewed my MRI & Myelogram and explained my nonsurgical option along with several surgical options available if surgery becomes the only option to resolve my radiculopathy. I was relieved to find out that I had two other surgical options available to me other than a fusion. He took the time to explain the pros/cons of each surgical option and what results I could expect from each. Highly recommend.

The best. He did an excellent job of explaining what he was going to do. And the best part was he did exactly what he said he was going to do. Surgery was a huge success. All of the nerve related pain is gone and just left with the surgical pain to recover from.

Dr. Blatt is the kind doctor that makes you feel like all is good, no need to worry and all is good..He spent 6 1/2 hours doing my surgery and he didnt suggest resting and laying around after surgery...2 days after and he had me walking...I truly believe thats one of the reasons the surgery was successful. .I had a decompression and fusion, lumbar and I was off the pain pills in 3 weeks and walking much better...I would highly recommend him

Over 10 years, I have twice had surgery performed by Dr Blatt. I have frequently recommended him to friends in need of a surgical evaluation. Dr Blatt and his team are caring, talented professionals who gave me the time I neeeded both in the operating room, the office and on the phone. They are the best.

I experienced a complicated back surgical procedure by Dr. Blatt. The procedure was a bilateral L3-L4 neurolysis with extensive decompression; L2, L3, L4, L5 and S1 laminectomies with foraminotomies; L5-S1 posterior lumbar inter body fusion w bone graft; and variLift cages; L2-L5 posterolateral fusion with bone graft and segmental instrumentation. Needless to say, I am extremely grateful to Dr. Blatt to regain my ability to be able to walk up a flight of steps. He is an unsurpassed surgeon

At the age of 27, Dr. Blatt performed a spinal fusion to my lower spine following a car accident. I could not be more pleased with the care I received from Dr. Blatt. He was a wonderful, knowledgable doctor and easy to work with. He treated me with such personal care and the surgery and recovery could not have gone better. I give Dr. Blatt my absolute highest recommendation!

I just think Dr.Blatt is the best. We talked about what was going on with my neck. How I was terrified to have surgery a forth time. The second and third surgery were horrible. He did NOT do either of those surgeries. He did the forth surgery and out come was wonderful.
