Dr. Blackstock has been very helpful and extremely understanding. When I was emotionally abused at the workplace while pregnant, she immediately took action and ensured me and the baby were safe. During my stay in the maternity ward, she checked in frequently and was nurturing and understanding. Despite it taking a long time for my daughter to be born, Dr. Blackstock was patient and motivated me constantly. She is also very personable and has a dry sense of humor. She is always willing to help and listen, and does not hesitate to support in any way she can.

She is great. She has been my OB for the past year and half. I was recommended to her during an emergency and im glad I found her. Her calmness and patience is amazing. I really appreciate how she takes time to go through all my questions and explains all related facts and information. All in all only good things about her.

Thank You Dr. Blackstock from the bottoms of our hearts, as you were caring, attentive & more than just a doctor to us and our lil baby Paisley. Tulsa is not our original home town, being here for work. As you can imagine a child birth away from Family and loved ones is difficult, Dr. Melanie Blackstock, her team and those at Saint Francis hospital made it a fantastic comfortable experience. Paisley is the fifth child, and first one born away from home, but it was the BEST experience.yet!!!!

Dr Blackstock has been my OB for over 20 years. She delivered my daughter in a high risk pregnancy, she performed my hysterectomy and saved my life - she takes the time to listen and she truly cares. Because she delivers babies and does surgeries and sees patients and takes time to really hear them...her wait time can be longer than most. But, in my opinion, great things are worth the wait!

I highly recommend dr. Blackstock! She has been my doctor for 16 years now and she delivered my first baby 6 years ago and I actually just got pregnant this September but it ended in a ectopic pregnancy due to scar tissue around my right tube she wasn't even on call that night and she still came in to do my surgery and that made me feel so much safer since I actually knew the doctor! But if you need a wonderful doctor definitely go see her!

I absolutely love her, she explained my condition thoroughly and was a great comfort to me when they took me back for surgery, i was having very bad anxiety and she talked me through it. I will be her patient as long as she continues to practice.

I went to her for 2 yrs. Multiple times I waited over 2 hours. She also came in to do my exam & I asked her if she would mind closing the blinds on the floor to ceiling windows i was facing. She said the windows are tinted dont worry about it. I was astonished, I am the patient and if I dont feel comfortable just close the blinds. Then we got 1/2 way thru my pap and she stops in the middle and leaves the room for 20 mins w/ no explanation. She came back in complaining about probs w/ her staff.
