Dr. Blake has been helping my elderly mother for roughly 5 years. He has always been attentive, considerate, knowledgeable and persistent in pursuing options that will help alleviate her pain due to both spinal problems and diabetes. Without Dr. Blake, my mother would be in a wheel chair needing help with every day tasks. Instead, she is able to take care of herself and enjoy several 'outings' a week. We appreciate Dr. Blake and his assistant Cyndi whose eagerness to help is extraordinary.

Dr Blake and his staff are truly caring and professional. He answers your questions and really cares about your concerns. He treats you like a person and not just someone's chart. I've been to other pain management doctors and he is the best. Thank you Dr Blake for helping me feel the best I can be.

Dr. Blake came in to meet me in the exam room before the epidural and asked if I had any questions. He is very professional and caring, making sure I was comfortable. I've had many epidurals from a doctor at another firm and was not treated as well or as professional as my experience with Dr. Blake. I'll highly recommend him to all my fiends. him to my friends.

Dr. Blake and his staff are absolutely amazing (Holly & Ashlie in particular). I have been dealing with widespread pain from Osteoarthritis for many years which has required hip replacement and 5 level fusion in my neck. Dr. Blake has performed many procedures on me to help with pain management and he is always excellent at listening and explaining potential options. He communicates with my other surgeons and health care providers when necessary and has such a kind bedside manner. Thank you!

Dr. Blake and Nurse Practitioner Andrea Black are the best in the business. I’ve been seeing Dr. Blake for herniated discs in my lower back for about 4 years and can’t say enough about his expertise, experience, and besides all of that he’s just a nice guy. The same can be said for Andrea Black (APRN). She is also an expert in the field and a very nice person to deal with. Again, great folks to work with to help me find reasonable ways to treat my back injury. Very highly recommended! Thanks!

He doesn't want to help. I was doing fine till he told me what I didn't need, and then did it. If you want help with your pain, go somewhere else.

Went to Dr. Blakes office after numerous back surgeries and still in severe pain. After reviewing records and examination was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia on top of disc disease.. He started me on a low dose of opiodes as already had injections which did not work. I was on same dosage for few years and was seeing Ashley for maintenance dosing. They were very caring and after started swimming and weight loss I weaned off meds. They helped me thru difficult time and am grateful careful about meds

I came to Dr Blake with back pain from a car accident, after being treated with another physician for a year. Dr. Blake did something that other physician hadn't taken the time to do, he listened. Within a month under Dr. Blake's care, my pain was managed. He changed up my medications and has since done a few procedures. I finally was able to function normally without constant pain. I still have the pain but I have Dr. Blake and his team and I know that I can count on them.

Terrible experience. Cuts patients off, argues with them, and makes unfounded accusations. Would not take my dog to him.

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.
