My husband and I both went for check-ups. I was told that my little brown spots were nothing to worry about, but husband had a little surgery to remove a precancerous mole. Thus three visits so far for the both of us. Everything was smooth and easy, and all staff, nurses, receptionists and Dr. Blake were very friendly, efficent and professional. Before we left, our prescriptions had already been sent to our preferred pharmacy and we were given ample supplies for wound care as well as sample product for a complaint about itching on my legs (possibly due to spider bites from gardening in my friend's neglected backyard). I highly recommend Dr. Blake and all of his staff. And appreciation also to Dr. Joseoh Caperna, our primary physician who referred us to Dr. Blake and also to several other specialists, all of whom have far exceeded our expectations.

Dr. Blake's thoroughness meant the world to me. I appreciated his bedside manner, confidence with my diagnosis and his support through the excision and follow-ups. He also did a phenomenal job treating my acne and rosacea. Would recommend him to a friend. I will be loyal to this doctor so long as he stays in the North County area! Thank you, Dr. Blake!! My only complaint would be the front office lady with the tattoo on her face. She was intimidating and unprofessional and a bit rude.

I had a really bad experience with my previous dermatologist who treated me like I was just a cash cow and was not excited to go back to one. I was referred to Dr. Blake by my doctor and was really pleased to find someone who actually still cares about his patients. Called me to check in after I had a big skin cancer surgery - then called me himself, again, to let me know it was all out.

I had the best medical appointment of my life today. I was taken back to meet my doctor 5 minutes after my appointment time. The staff at this clinic were professional and courteous. Dr. Blake's assistant was wonderful but he is exceptional. So straightforward and thorough. Wanted to make sure I wasn't in any discomfort while he did 4 biopsies. He immediately ordered an extensive blood panel. He made me feel comfortable the entire time. I could never recommend a doctor more highly.
