Ratings for Dr. James D. Blake
I cant believe these reviews! I made the appointment and went in for my first visit. It was crowded and I did wait a little while but they were moving quickly. Although they were getting patients in and out quickly, I did not feel rushed at all. Staff was very friendly and all smiles. Dr Blake listened to me, then I listened to him. He has a very positive and healthy approach. He touched on diet and cardio. Many people do not want to hear that, but it's something we should listen to. Diet and cardio won't cure everything, but it should be part of a treatment plan when the patient is capable. Another impressive thing is the fact that Dr Blake offers treatment to those with dependency on opioids, whether it is pain meds, heroin, etc. And the cost is less than half of what other places in this area charge. I have seen prices and requirements that are unethical. I understand the need to make a profit, but to capitalize on a public health issue is criminal. Dr Blake is saving lives. E.
If you hit the lottery and see Dr. Blake, he is a nice guy... Obviously this isn't the sole characteristic most seek in a doctor, though it does matter. Only one staff member is exempt from the sad, horrifying facts below, and I believe her name is Melissa? (Usually at the window / answering the phone). Lets begin... this wretched group of individuals is HANDS-DOWN the most atrocious, unprofessional, unfriendly,worthless, incredibly lazy "staff" in the history of mankind - & that was the shortened version. It is literally impossible to phrase just how awful and pathetic they are. I really am struggling to come up with a reason why one of them couldn't have informed their patients that Dr. Blake's 1 day to see folks changed... They'd rather try and make us sound like idiots I guess? Laughable, they are a disgrace. Doctors prescribe medication bc the patient needs them and the benefits outweigh the risks... Yea, common sense you'd think... Good luck... "Uhh we'll see you next Thursday".
Doctor Blake and his staff are the worst i have ever Seen .For starters you cant see a doctor unless you could on a certain day or just lucky enough he my be there.most of the time you see the nurse practioner .Shes nice but thats the only thing good i would say.They look up treatments on there phone and diagnose your problem that way.Oh buy the way if you require narcotics as part of your diagnosis .your out of luck!!! as i mentioned early she is a nurse!!!she cannot perscribe that to you!!!!
I saw Dr. Blake once several years ago, and that was enough for me! I went in with a sore back, and he started performing chiropractic-type procedures on me. This wouldn't have been so bad, had I not been wearing A DRESS at the time. He was lifting my legs up and pushing my knees up to my chest while I was wearing a dress without panty hose, and I have never felt so exposed and uncomfortable in my life! I was completely embarassed, and after about 3 minutes of minutes of this, I told him to stop, and I left. That is the only time in my life that I have ever walked out of a doctor's office feeling humiliated. If I had expected to have chiropractic procedures done on me, I would've worn sweatpants or something more appropriate. However, Dr. Blake is NOT a chiropractor, and I was totally caught off guard by this. I have never had another MD do anything similar to this. He should have known better than to do those type of procedures on a woman wearing a dress!
