Wonderfully pleasant, knowledgeable. Listened carefully at eye to eye level. Eagle Scout attitude with no distraction of a computer with a smile and nonforced laugh at my sybaritic monologue. 1Q of155 and he carrys himself in a non braggadocio Calm self confidence that makes him a worthy receptor my confidence and personal health secrets. A true practitioner of altruistic humanism

Dr. Blessinger looked at the mole and told me what it was and why I didn't need to do anything to it. I appreciated his explanation and suggestion that there was no need to remove it

Went to both clinics. Upon leaving Kapahulu clinic, I was suppose to see HIM again in one month. Receptionist (without telling me), scheduled me with his P. Assistant...Luckily, I caught this in time..This PA, is NOT a Doctor..I pay to see a Doctor..Not a Physicians Asst.; especially when it concerns my Health.. Hard to get anyone to call you back, and even the Pharmacy here, said it was almost impossible to get his approval on medications..Making me wait again. Not recommending due to such.
