I had the procedure Monday 2/24. It is the 4th day and 3rd night, I have had at lest 6 1/2 hours sleep 3 days in a row, for the first time in a year. The pain in my thighs have been reduced about 80%+, There is some residual pain in my left leg (the bad one) but I expected that due to condition. It is a little better and I an glad of that. I will follow the information I was given. Taking it easy the first 5 days, monitor progress for 15 days after that and then see if I can make it to the 3 month mark (and hopefully 6 months). The procedure went well, very professional and I was provided with more knowledge during the procedure then my operation. All were very professional. The 1st pain doctor I went to should emulate your level of care.

Dr. Blake listens patiently and responds in layman's terms to your questions before he starts the scheduled procedure. I'm very aware of how busy they are, but I don't feel rushed. I have total confidence in Dr. Blake and his staff, who have all been so helpful, even when I've accidentally screwed up the scheduling or system

I saw Dr Blake A few days ago for a follow up. I’ve been seeing him now for nearly 6 years. A year ago I had two major back surgeries 2 1/2 months apart. My recovery has not been what I expected and extremely slow. Dr Blake is an excellent doctor! He is always sat and listened to my laundry list of what is going on with me. It doesn’t matter how long it takes he’s very attentive. He listens and truly cares. He always has suggestions of different avenues of treatment. I’m one of those people that’s in the 2%. I highly recommend Dr Blake and both of his nurse practitioners. All of his office staff are wonderful. I’ve referred many of my friends to them.
