I came in with all these new symthoms that I couldn't get under control no matter what I did or didn't do. doctor Blackrock diagnosed me and have referral for me to see another specialist. I am 100% proactive in my own health needs. I researched her diagnosis and it was so accurate I was astonished. I feel she is a brilliant ortho doctor. I feel very confident under her care.

Dr. Blackrick has always completely made sure I understand limitations of my condition and speaks to me making sure I understand everything concerning my injuries. SHe is one of the best! The staff at orthopedics is always friendly and helpful, and quick to take care of insurance and disability info and forms.
