What People Say About Dr. Richard Blickenstaff, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr. Blickenstaff has been my husband’s dermatologist, and he is very proactive. He is. Rey knowledgeable and knew right away what was going on with my husband after he had been misdiagnosed for 2 years by a different doctor he had been sent to. We asked for a second opinion and have been extremely happy with Dr. Blickenstaff and his staff!!!

I am so pleased to have found Dr. Blickenstaff, and his PA Rachel, whose last name I cannot recall, who was responsible for having a suspicious spot tested, catching an early melanoma. They’re friendly and thorough.
