I've been a patient of Dr. Blackwell for 7 years now and have admired his care and treatment. He acknowledges he's not an expert in some areas and will refer you to specialists that are. Dr. Blackwell has always taken the time to explain treatments and why he feels he needs to refer me to a specialist.
