What People Say About Dr. Robert Blackwell, MD
Reply
Dr. Blackwelll has performed carpal tunnel surgery on both my wrists and he did a superb job. Eight years of good results. I have driven 3 1/2 hours to see him when I slept funny on my right wrist and it was a little sore; that's all it was. Recently I was in a traffic accident and my right wrist needs looking at. I'm driving the 3 1/2 hours again to see Dr. Blackwell. I wouldn't trust my hands to anyone else.
