    Dr. Blair is exceptional. I had an emergency due to diverticulitis over the summer and ended up needing a sigmoid colon resection which we did later in the year. He helped me in both cases, taking considerable time to talk through the procedures and calm my fears. Plus he is quite skilled and experienced. The final operation went perfectly and I was up and about and even driving in just a week! So if you're looking for someone who sincerely cares about his patients and will give you "above and beyond" attention, Dr. Blair is your guy. He definitely knows what he is doing. Trust this man's judgement. I really lucked out finding him!
