I had an appointment for close to 3 months and the practice called me 2 days before my appointment and cancelled my appointment telling me your practice wasn’t accepting any new patients. You were recommended to me by 2 current patients. I’ve been waiting to see a doctor about an ongoing issue and now have to wait again. Your practice waisted my time and ability to see a doctor.

I absolutely love and respect dr. Reina Blackwood. She’s the first provider I have found who sat down and listened to my concerns and helped fix them! Our first appointment together we discussed all my concerns, and then rescheduled another appointment to discuss lab results and talk about options. She is such a find.

I love the practice. I am not a patient myself but looked for a new Dr. for my mom and I couldn’t have found two better family physicians than Dr Robert Blackwood and Dr Reina Blackwood. They are caring, thorough and personable. I really feel they have my mom’s best interests at heart. Dr Reina suggested an excellent Hospice program for my mom. The only thing that I don’t like is that our association will end with my mom’s passing and I will return to OH to be with my daughters and their families.

Would highly recommend this office, I see Stephanie Hadley and she has been the most amazing caring medical professional to treat my multiple medical conditions. There is rarely any wait time, you can get appointments quickly, and staff is very caring and friendly. They have a lab within the office so it makes it easy for blood tests. I love this office and will never go anywhere else. I trust them with my care 100%.
