Great Doctor and staff, they care more about their patients than red tape. I moved to Suffolk and drive over 25 miles to see the best doctor in Hampton Roads.

He listened to my concerns and is doing what it takes to solve the problem. I had a physical, questions about my meds, and a lump under my skin.

PA Shields is my regular General Practice doctor and I am extremly satisfied with her care. She's an excellent listener and works hard to understand the "whole you", as a patient. She won't ask you "cookie cutter" questions, or try to fit your care into a common box. As truly personalized care seems to be fading away, she is the exception.

Dr. Blackwood has been my doctor since 2013. He is the best Doctor I have ever had. He takes the time to find out what is wrong with you and answers your questions. The office staff is friendly. Nurses do an outstanding job. Office wait times have actually gotten better over the years. Just one bit of advice for those going to see any kind of doctor. Be prepared. Have a notepad with questions or to take notes. Doctors are busy these days due to the changes in healthcare. You the patient

I've been seeing Dr. Blackwood for over 12 years. He's always been very good at diagnosing my problems and if I need it a referral to specialist. A very caring and personal doctor.

Dr Blackwood is one of the best doctors I have had. He is a family doctor, and always takes time for his patients. In my opinion, he’s top notch!

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Blackwood for 12 or 13 years. I would describe Dr. Blackwood as a “personable professional”. He is genuine in his care for people while at the same time a total professional on the medical side of the relationship. If he finds the need to refer you to a specialist, it’s executed with a calm sense of urgency. I find that with, a few exceptions, his staff reflects the same professionalism as he. I am very comfortable with his physicians PA’s and nurses.

Dr Blackwood was my doctor for many years for routine issues; but the care and service he offered began to decline severely- as reviews state. About 10 years ago I hurt my back badly after a fall. He refused to get me an mri and let me suffer very severe pain for months with no return phone calls and no meds. I finally got a better doctor! Turns out I had a completely ruptured shredded disc that needed a two level fusion and coccyxgectomy. I Don’t recommend this office at all
