Dr. Blackburn is one of the most caring and compassionate doctors I’ve ever seen. She is professional, kind, and demonstrates all of what a skilled doctor should. She is honest and overall just a good human being. I feel blessed to have been referred to her for my nerve testing as she took the time to explain the results and what I should expect next. Words cannot express how thankful I am for her treatment and kindness. I have no doubt she’s truly committed to the well-being of others.

So knowledgeable and compassionate doctor. I went to her for an EMG Test and Nerve Conduction Study to rule out Carpal Tunnel in both wrists. She made the procedure very comfortable. I have some discomfort , but not pain. If you are planning to do this test, please don't freak out, it doesn't hurt. Dr Blackburn really knows what she is doing.

Dr. Blackburn was very friendly and informative when performing my pre-op testing. Furthermore, she went above and beyond when she reached out to the team to inquire about an earlier surgery date when she sensed the pain I was in and found that I had nerve damage. I would definitely recommend Dr. Blackburn.

Dr. Blackburn was very pleasant to talk with and she explained everything she was doing during my nerve test. This was the second time she has been my doctor for this procedure and she showed the same pleasant manner each time.

Was this a doctor? Yes, and I wish they were all as caring, careful, and friendly as her. Oh yes, and highly skilled as she went about doing the EMG/NCS on both legs.
