Excellent! He's a good doctor, the kind that puts a patient at ease, explains what's up, and cuts to the chase on what to do. Put your hands in his hands (if you have a hand ailment, as I did).

Dr. Blais is very professional. I feel a sense of comfort when discussing my knees. He carefully examines my knees even when I feel pain. He provides options for me. I am extremely satisfied with Dr. Blais as my ortho doctor!

I rolled my ankle while running at Town Lake. I called Texas Orthopedics and they were able to get an appointment at 8:00am the next morning. I was so relieved because we were going on vacation the day after that. Dr. Blais was prompt and spent time examining my ankle and explaining the x-ray results.. He then explained what a torn ligament is. My only complaint is that when I got home I couldn't read the notes he gave me because of the handwriting. The office helped with that. : )

My experience with Dr. Blais was excellent. He had my spine and both knees x-rayed and put me so much at ease by doing that and by his kind professional , experienced care. He gave me notes of further steps (I. e. notes to Physical Therapist), an order for physical therapy, a cortisone shot and a whole lot of care. I highly recommend Dr. Blais.

I have been seeing Dr Blais for a decade and he has performed several successful surgeries for knees and shoulders. He is a consummate professional and always spends plenty of time consulting and I have never felt he was rushing to see another patient. He explained everything in layman’s terms. I would recommend Dr Blais to my friends and have done so numerous times.

Dr. Blais and his ortho tech, Mike, were great! Dr. Blais showed me my x-rays and thoroughly explained what he saw. He gave me several options and explained the benefits of each. I had an exam, x-ray and injection and was done in less than an hour from my apt time- that is awesome!

Pros: Dr. Blais- I felt comfortable and safe. I felt I could trust his decisions. He showed my x-rays to me and explained them, gave his diagnoses and administered an injection into my knee, as per my request at learning of my diagnosis on that knee. Dr. Blais is professional, seems caring. Cons: Things moved so quickly once I was moved to the procedure room. I’m physically slow and the X-ray Tech-so speedy. Bedside manner was also lacking for her only. Overall, a great experience. Lobby SLOW
