I have been to Dr Blackburn for many years. My parents were his patients before me. Superb care. Dr. B listens. He takes time with his patients. He considers other aspects of health in the equation. I would also term him "conservative" in his medical approach which I appreciate. He is a very fine physician.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Blackburn after receiving a Pacemaker placed by a doctor in the same group as Dr. Blackburn. I choose Dr. Blackburn because he would be closer to where I live. I would highly recommend him. He didn't rush in and out. I had a good report and he explained more about the Pacemaker. I didn't have to wait long in waiting room or in exam room. His staff was very nice. I had a list of questions which he took time to answer for me. Very friendly. I am glad I have him as my doctor.

Dr. Tim has seen me through several serious cardiac and pulmonary issues since 2004. He was also the first doctor in my life in 2004 [59] to correctly define a long history of blackouts, that had gone on for over 35 years. Dr. Blackburn listens to his patients health concerns and works in concert with other professionals to find solutions. I was very lucky for this referral.

I would recommend Dr. Blackburn in a heartbeat. He is one of the most caring doctors I have ever met in my 70+ years. He LISTENS to you attentively, before he makes a comment or gives you advice based on your medical history and what you have just told him. He will work with you until he finds a diagnosis to your concern. His staff is equally is top notch.

I have been seeing Dr. Blackburn for several years now. When my problem was first recognized, I received same day service. He is a caring physician. Dr. Blackburn is knowledgeable, will explain your condition to you in lay terms....you will really know what is going on! He communicates with my primary care physician well. I love this guy. He is human, humble and kind!
