While Dr. Blake is a fairly good doctor, he lacks some compassion. My father was his patient for 10 plus years and when there was nothing more to do, Dr. Blake was quick to right off my father. He never even called when my father passed. It made me sad since my father had really respected Dr. Blake. I wouldn't recommend Dr. Blake for his empathy for sure.
While I do not actively support an online presence when I came across this comment,I was deeply disturbed. My professional ability and achievements are important to me, but caring about my patients as individuals is paramount; one cannot be a good doctor without being empathetic. That's just not who I am. I have no way of identifying you by your comment,but want to encourage you to contact me at the office at any time so that we can personally discuss your concerns. Thank You
