Service and care was as expected.

I have been seeing Dr. Blackrick for the past 18 months for a very bad broken leg I received from a fall. After multiple surgeries, a setback, and rehab I am happy to say Dr. Blackrick has me walking on my own. I really appreciate the fact that she took the hard road and saved my leg rather than the easy way out.

caring, respectful with my concerns and making sure my recovery is going in the right direction.

Dr. Blackrick and her staff were very helpful and understanding with me. Dr. Blackrick especially made a horrible ordeal very, very bearable. Her office staff was always pleasant and helpful when I visited the office. The wait time to have the x-rays and see Dr. Blackrick was never long and the office visit was completed in an extremely timely matter. Dr. Blackrick took her time explaining everything about my problem and answered any questions I had in a manner I completely understood. I would recommend Dr. Blackrick to any person I know and also recommend the general office.

This doctor seems to be lacking compassion. Her bedside manner leaves alot to be desired. Seemed to be irritated during the whole 3.5 minutes she talked at me. I came to her office for some kind of relief, only to leave feeling worse than ever.

Love Dr. Blackrick and the staff in that office are all very friendly and helpful.
