Patient Comments (3)
Homewood, AL |
Dr. Blackburn's staff refused to schedule me for a basic physical because I had not been to their office in three years. They said that the time away made me a new patient and they don't give physicals to new patients. Prior to this, I had been a patient of Blackburn's for 20+ years. It is sad when office rules trump common sense.

I have been going to Dr. Blackburn for many years. He is patient, and never rushes. He is a good Christian man and really wants you to be in good health. His staff is wonderful and I can not say enough good things about them. I believe in all the years I have gone to him, I may have had to wait more than 30 minutes twice. My pharmacist uses him and that is how I found him, I would highly recommend him for your everyday needs!
