Dr. Blessey has been my internist for many Years. She is prompt with appointment times. Spends a lot of time reviewing your chart and takes time to review all tests results with you. She explains the result to you in details and follows up on retesting if needed. I feel completely confident in her diagnostic Abilities. She is very easy to talk to and has a pleasant Sense of humor. Congratulations Dr. Blessey on being awarded the best Internal Medicine by New Orleans Magazine in August 2016.

Dr. Blessey always listens, doesn't hurry you or make you feel like you're wasting her time, and takes a genuine interest in the patient. She is kind, enthusiastic, and has the human touch missing in so many doctor-patient visits. I will continue seeing her as long as she is seeing patients!
