I had an appointment this morning with Dr william blythe at 9 thirty am. Dr william blythe arrived for the appointment 2hrs and thrity minutes late. Dr william blythe never apologized for his excessive tardiness. Time he spent examining me: 7 to 8 minutes. He then very quickly left the room. It is evidently clear that Dr william blythe has no consideration and respect for his patient, that is an obvious fact.

Dr. Blythe diagnosed a serious problem on the first visit to him after 2 ears of seeing another ENT doctor who mis-diagnosed it. Dr. Blythe was through in his examination and explanation of the problem and made an immediate referral to a specialist in Birmingham to do the surgery. I appreciate his knowledge, skill and wisdom in his area of practice and highly recommend him.
