First time I went in waited for over a hour. Then she argued with me about how old I am. I should have done more research on her at that time. Let her preform surgery on me. Two days later went back because of pain. She was very rude told me to stop walking around like I was broken. She said she had the same surgery and she was did not have any pain. My case was nothing like hers. I had a tumor removed along with my ovaries and tubes. Told her I was having hot flashes. She said I was post menopausal. One week later went in to see her nurse practitioner because I had a knot come up under my incision. The nurse was sweet she felt of my knot. But wanted Dr. Blackstock to feel it. Dr. Blackstock came in was in the room less than a minute said it looked fine but never felt it. Said I am suppose to have knots they are called healing cells. Left her office in tears never have I had such horrible treatment from a physician. Went to my primary care physician and found out I have an infection and have been taking antibiotics for two weeks now. Would not recommend her to my worst enemy.
My very first visit...She tried to send me straight to get gastric bypass surgery without knowing me or my background Just because according to her I was overweight. Then she said she couldn't find my uterus. ???? Crazy!!! Nevertheless she knew nothing about me. Horrible beside manner.
Dr. Blackstock is an amazing woman. If it were not for her my daughter would have been born with learning disabilities due to my lack of thyroid hormones. At 5 months pregnant I started having heart palpitations. My primary doctor told me my thyroid medication was too high of a dose. He sent my blood work to Dr Blackstock and she called me personally to tell me to get to an endocrinologist asap. Turns out, my levels were too low! She saved my daughter! I will forever be thankful for Dr Blackstock!
She is absolutely horrible! Horrible bed side manner and doesn't not care about her patients. I was bleeding profusely and she told me it was because of my blood pressure (which was high at time of visit due to the fact my hormones were messed up and her staff told me 3 different times I'm over weight. I knew this. Didn't need to be told 3 times.) And tried to put me on blood thinners. A week later I went to a different Dr. and was diagnosed with pcos. My blood pressure was actually low due to the fact I was bleeding so bad. I would never recommend her to anyone! Stay away!
I went to her for 2 yrs. Multiple times I waited over 2 hours. She also came in to do my exam & I asked her if she would mind closing the blinds on the... Read more at Yelp.com.
Called the office for information on sterilization. Was sent to the nurse's voicemail. Called three times in a week, leaving voicemails and requesting callbacks and the nurse never got back to me. Should have been my first clue. I get to the office and "Sterilization Consultation" has been written on my paperwork pretty clearly. The nurse put me in the gown and apparently set me up for pap smear instead. I wait for over a half hour. The doctor comes in and tries to continue the pap smear session, when she has in her hand my paperwork with my reason for visiting. Once I get her on the right track she was extremely rude and condescending. I was attempting to discuss statistics with her. She kept ignoring what I was saying (statistics I got from studies) and she kept telling me I was wrong. Wouldn't give me any information or sources, just kept talking over me. She kept talking about herself and did not treat me like an adult. She then goes on to tell me they wouldn't even entertain the procedure for me. This could have been COMPLETELY avoided if her nurse would have returned my calls. It was a complete waste of my time with a completely unprofessional doctor and nurse. She wouldn't tell me why they put me in the gown, and kept telling me there was a "appointment confusion." Completely untrue. Would never, ever ever return to this worthless doctor again.
