I've never had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Blackwell. But I can't thank him enough for what he did for my significant other. He is a true miracle worker. Am glad he is the doctor to perform my love's neck surgery. He was also recommended by one of my nursing professors. Thank you so much for...more
