Patient Comments (6)
Pearland, TX |
Horrible physician, unprofessional staff, had to see another physician for surgery to perform surgical procedure that Dr. Blackwell supposedly performed six months ago and had to have a nerve graph to (hopefully) regain feeling and sensation in digit due to Dr. Blackwell severing a main nerve. In turn costing me additional surgery, pain, money, and time absent from work. Reported having no feeling in one side of digit and numerous times only to be told "it come back with time".

We have used Dr Blackwell for knee and shoulder surgery. Also for sprains and other injuries. He has been outstanding.

He doesn't really explain what's wrong very well, nor does he really answer your questions.
in Pinehurst, TX |
Dr. Blackwell is an excellent doctor. I had hip replacement surgery and my recovery has been great! Dr. Blackwell was very thorough in explaining the procedure to me prior to the operation and after surgery my follow-up visits were great! I highly recommend Dr. Blackwell if anyone is in need of a hip replacement surgery. Also his office staff are very kind, friendly and helpful.
in Huffman, TX |
I saw Dr. Blackwell today for the first time and he was a nice gentleman... told me what was going on what our next steps would be and scheduled my surgery before I left his office... his staff ( I didn't get her name am sorry ) was a sweet friendly lady who I look forward to talking to again ...actually met her in the elevator on the way to his office and she was just so sweet.
