We love Dr. Blackrick. She seems so in love with her work. Very thorough, very passionate, and very willing to spend as much time as I need to answer all questions.

only thing I was concerned about was a added issue I told her about and she really didn't go into details about it. yes told me to take anti inflammatory meds but neverr told why it happens

She patiently listened, answered questions, provided understanding and determined a course of treatment that was needed as well as acceptable to me. She also compassionately made it clear my visit was not a waste of time as I had been feeling, expressing appreciation that I had come to see her.

first visit with Dr. Blackrick. She did not make me feel comfortable, I didn't even want to ask her seemed like she is the doctor, I am the patient, she knows what she is doing so don't take up any of her time. She is a young doctor who could use some bedside manners, that is important to patients to feel comfortable.

Friendly, efficient and caring!
