Found Dr Blackwood a very knowledgeable and helpful surgeon. She is so compassionate and consider all options and never rush you for her own choice of treatment rather asks you for your mind . Answers all your questions and let you think independently. I really admire her and recommend her if you want some doctor with positive energy to help you in recovering from breast cancer

Breast Cancer is a complex disease with many treatment options. We do believe that patients need all the information about their cancer, their genetics and their options. We try to explain this to them and fit their treatment to their preferences and their lifestyle.

Waited well over an hour for my consult. She seemed very compassionate, and is highly regarded but office was so disorganized I went elsewhere. I could not confidently trust them with my health, since they had so little regard for my time. Found a great surgeon elsewhere who didn't downplay my symptoms and ended up saving my life.

I am sorry you felt that we did not help you. Sometimes, we do have emergencies and many patients that require our attention that could delay us. We try to help everyone. However, we are glad you were able to get the help you needed.

cured my breast cancer and had a great team helping her...very compassionate and detail oriented. she does not rush you. She only ordered tests that were helpful...I went to her for dense breast tissue and she found my breast cancer. I am so lucky it was caught so early.

I am so surprised about the positive reviews for Dr. M. Blackwood. In my experience, she provided no knowledge, input or advice other than pushing invasive tests. I guess that's what she gets paid to do.

We are sorry you felt this way. Dr. Blackwood does not order unnecessary tests. We cannot offer any other information because we do not know what this is in reference to.

Dr. Blackwood is the best! Not rushed, explained everything, answered all questions, took her time with you I felt most comfortable with her as my doctor. . I decided to go with Dr. Blackwood for my cancer surgery and she was my second opinion. Recommended a fantastic radiation oncologist and medical oncologist. I highly recommend her for breast cancer surgery and think she is the most competent and caring breast specialist in this area.

Did not like her...kept me waiting an hour. Brought a trainee in with her--did not ask if that is OK. She does not want you to disagree with her -- just go through all the very expensive testing even if it does not seem necessary. She comes off as arrogant. Would not go back.

We do have residents and medical students that rotate with us. They are an integral part of RWJBarnabas Health. However, If a patient does not want a resident in the room during her consult, they do not have to have the student doctors or residents there. We do let the patient choose.
