Dr Blessey is a good listener and a great doctor. Before meeting him I had pain night and day in my shoulder. I see him every 6 to 10 months and 2 days after the injection I am pain free. Now I can enjoy my family. Thank you

Amazing Surgeon! Never rushed me for surgery, now that I had it done I can finally live again! Had a total hip replacement
in Covington, LA |
I was walking in 2014 but with considerable knee pain. Was advised hip surgery was needed. Hip surgery was done, twice in August 2014, (by this Dr.) both ops within 48 hrs of each other, again in June 2015 (2015 was complete hip revision by a different surgeon after a 2nd opinion was asked for) all on the same hip. It's now 2016 and I still cannot walk, lay flat without back pain, wheelchair & house bound, have financial hardship & low to no quality of life. Would you recommend this Dr.?
