How rare to find a physician who has such personal concern for his patient's well being
I really like Dr. Blair. He always treats me well as a person, listens to me and spends time explaining things and offering different options he thinks will suit me the best. I like that he has a 'sick' and a 'well' waiting area.

Dr. Blair has only been our family physician for a little over a year but we have seen him quite a few times. He has been very helpful and provided medical care that was much needed. In some cases he went out of his way to provide test results after the office was closed for the weekend. The staff is very helpful and they make you feel very welcome. It should also be noted that he runs an emergency care service out of his office.

My experience at Island Family Medicine has been extremely positive. I live in Hampstead half of the time and in WV the other half. I have multiple health problems, some not controlled, and Dr Blair and his staff go the extra mile to keep me healthy. Dr Blair takes a lot if time with you and never seems rushed, even when the waiting room is full. I just love and appreciate them all, and I'm so glad I found them.

I have always found Dr. Blair to be a caring physician and one who places his patients sometimes above his own concerns. You can not find a better Physician in this area.

Couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable physician the Dr. Blair. Always goes above and beyond to make sure every avenue is covered to find and treat the problem at hand.

Dr. Blair saw me initially as a walk in when my family care practitioner asked me to go to the ER, because he was too busy. Dr. B. resolved a major problem for me that patietday & showed he had in depth knowledge of drug interactions as well as take on patients not his, if needed. I've been more impressed over time, and I have referred a number of people to his practice, which is your answer here.

Dr. Blair and his staff always take time to make a thorough diagnosis and recommend the best course of treatment for whatever health issue arises, from something as minor as conjunctivitis to a difficult to diagnose, but serious, kidney infection, the level of care has been consistent. He is an excellent family doctor.

easy to talk to, down to earth Doctor
Sneads Ferry, NC |
Dr. Blair and his staff have provided outstanding service to me throughout the 5 years that I've been his patient. Most notable has been his successful diagnosis and treatment of my fibromyalgia. Dr. Blair has always taken the time that is required to be sure that I understand my diagnosis and treatment options and that all my questions have been answered thoroughly. This can sometimes lead to longer wait times, but it is always worthwhile! He is one of the best doctors I've had.

Currently under Dr. Blair's care and having reaction to medication he prescribed but I have asked three times now to speak with him and he will not call me to discuss. I don't know if he is choosing to not call or if he is not getting msg to call me. Receptionist today as well as his nurse were very rude to me and as a patient I should not be treated this way. I'm very disappointed and appalled at their lack of concern for my health. I trusted them to help me. Do not recommend.

I could not be more impressed with the visit I had yesterday, with Dr. Blair. I have a family Dr, but could not get an appointment less than 2 or 3 days. I have some sort of a respitory problem, . Dr. Blair had me explain how it came on, when it came and what I had taken. Dr. Blair then listened to my breathing, and after one breath was able to prescribe 3 meds. He then sat down explained what he would give me, and now after 24 hrs. I feel like a new person. Thank you. My Hero.
