Chattanooga, TN |
I waited over 6 months to get into pain management, which I need due to a horrible back injury. I explained that my insurance did not cover much and provided genetic testing my PCP had done to show which pain meds I responded best to. Doctor did not listen to any of that, kept me waiting over 1.5 hours and spent 5 minutes with me. Only thing he would do was send me for physical therapy (ins doesn't cover) and possible back injection (also not covered). BEYOND disappointed.

I have found the Staff to be most caring and concerned with my well being. I was referred to Dr. Blake by my PC, who refused to work with me to control and manage my pain. I have multiple areas that create excruciating pain. My PC refused to write any prescription for a controlled substance. Dr. Blake and crew are a God send. My life is returning to normal. My job is great since I am able to do the physical tasks. You can say that Dr. Blake gave me my life back.

I found him to be very personable,and thorough.

Dr. Blake was nice but a bit rushed when talking to me. I liked him. However his surgery scheduling office staff are VERY rude both in person and on the phone when I had to deal with them. The nursing staff were all very good.
Chattanooga, TN |
Dr. Blake and his staff are wonderful. They took time , explained the procedure I was needing, and did a wonderful job. I will definitely go back to him for my next procedure.

I'm still waiting to see how things go . I have a lot of metal in my back. It's sad that people have to go through living like this. Some people in the medical field just don't know what life is. When you're in pain .
Chattanooga, TN |
I realize working for a Pain Management office would be trying at times. Unfortunately there is patients that are legitimately in pain and not just seeking Pain Meds. With that being said I think Dr Blake's front office staff could be more pleasant and not so rude when checking in. If you do not like your job go elsewhere!!!!!!

Dr Blake has no empathy for pain patients. Refuses to increase meds even though you explain to him that you're in serious pain. I have a pain pump that was installed in 2008 and when I moved to Tennessee I started seeing Dr Blake. He reduce the amount of medication I was getting by 90%. Took away the biggest part of my breakthrough medicine and finally took it away totally. Now I sit here in pain and they do not care. Had a breakdown in the office due to the fact that the PA was completely obtus
