Dr. Blakemore's Care Philosophy

I'm so lucky to care for children with orthopedic conditions, it's an honor and my life's work! I specialize in scoliosis and spinal deformities, but also care for general pediatric orthopedic conditions like fractures, sports injuries and congenital conditions. One of the best things about treating kids is the chance to develop relationships with the patient and their family, as many of the problems we see can be treated with casting or bracing as opposed to surgery. We honestly try to provide every child the best care possible.

Patient Comments (1)
in Macclenny, FL |
After several appointments with other doctors including our pediatrician, we seen Dr. Blakemore. She is absolutely phenomenal. My 13 yr old daughter felt very comfortable and confident in our decision to proceed with surgery for scoliosis. I honestly thought we were going to have no choice but to travel to a different state to get the care that was necessary. Dr. Blakemore took her time with us and answered every question we asked based on her education, experience and fit for my child.
