With the amount of time and compassion that Dr. Blestel spent on me, I understand why he was always late. As long as he was spending quality time with me, I realized that he was doing that with those who came before me. He never acted like he was in a hurry. He took his time and explained why I needed surgery and literally walked me through the whole process.

NEVER SAW HIM. AFTER OVER 1 HR. WAITING IN FULL WAITING ROOM. LEFT AS ALL PEOPLE DESERVE RESPECT OF APPOINTED TIME. HE HAS NO CARE FOR OTHERS AND THEIR LIVES WHILE LIVING.
