    I would recommend Dr. Blackwell to anyone. He literally saved my life. I was born with a heart birth defect and it wasn't until I saw Dr. Blackwell at the age of 67 that it was diagnosed. He recommended immediate open heart surgery to repair the damage. He is kind and knowledgeable and I cannot say enough good about him.
