Patient Comments (3)
I wish I could leave a negative one star. Once upon a time, it would have been a 5-star review. Sadly, not any longer. Quality and care have gone downhill, drastically.
Prior to scheduling a Cervical Medial Branch Block, I consulted with Dr. Blake and explained my pain/ anxiety issues. He told me that he couldn't fully sedate me but that I could be lightly sedated. Upon scheduling appointment, it was again confirmed that I would be given an IV with mild sedation. When Dr. Blake arrived at Surgery Center, he told me I could not be sedated due to the nature of the procedure. I was given false information. The procedure was excruciatingly painful and aborted.
