I disagree with Dr. Blacher diagnosis. He was distant and very busy the day I saw him.
in Miami, FL |
The biggest problem is scheduling an appointment and the wait time. However once I meet with Dr. Blacher, the appointment is very extensive and all questions are answered. Dr. Blacher is very helpful in explaining my condition and explaining all medications. When I was in the Hospital a few years ago, Dr. Blacher came in daily to monitor my condition. To both myself and my family this was very reassuring.
