Patient Comments (11)
I've never met someone more unprofessional. When asked a question she became offended and WALKED OUT. She turned her back on my family member and blocked them from practice This seems to be her pattern. Do your research. Your family deserves a Dr., in the hardest season of your life, who will be honest and compassionate and willing to walk you through ALL your choices. THIS IS NOT YOUR DR. She will walk away when things get tough.

STAY AWAY FROM HER. She hates questions and will mot discuss, becomes VIOLENTLY ANGRY. 1st question asked she answered,"I see this is going to have a Bad outcome, I can send you somewhere else." She is manipulative, preys on her patients vulnerabilities and writes on white board to lure you into believe she is intelligent, but doesn't write, much less explain, what a patient already knows from previous Dr which she quickly asks upon meeting,"Are you afraid? Are you nervous?" If you say, "No,"

Went for my third chemo treatment Thursday and was denied treatment and blocked from all TN oncology Drs for asking questions about my treatment,infections like MRSA where her office would not see me two different times and instead had to be treated in the E.R. Cannot ask questions about treatment without getting mad. I was told to suck it up on one visit and that she didn't have time for questions on another visit. That's when I got up and left and now am banned. SHE HAS NO FEELINGS FOR OTHERS!

Worst doctor I have ever been to. She is insensitive, uninformed about what is going on with her patients. And makes jokes at the expense of her cancer patients. I would not recommend her to anyone! The staff at his office is rude but that is because you are only as great as your leader. Please do not go here. She will not treat your loved one with care!
We are looking for another Doctor in the middle of chemo treatments. As long as you go in and do what she says with no questions then you get treated well and don't sit in lobby for an hour. If you like to research what she tells you and you have question for her, she can't give a straight answer. It's a shame my husband was treated like he was during a time like this. There is not enough room on here to even begin to tell you what's happened in this office.

She kept injuries caused by treatment from me, and lied about treatments she was going to give me and didn't. When I requested to see another doctor, she blocked me from seeing any at Tn. Oncology.

Dr. Blakely is an amazing Dr. She has an amazing way of helping my wife deal with what all she is going through! I highly recommend her if needed. She has been on top of things,never missing a beat on her tests. Following through with some of the best surgeons in the country. I cant thank her enough for this very taxing position she holds. She has been a part of my wife's journey battling with cancer since 2010 and will continue to be a part of her journey.
