"I first met Dr. Blackstone at the wls seminar I attended and thought she was very articulate and extremely knowledgable. I have not changed my opinion. rnrnHer office staff are very friendly and knowledgable. rnrnDr. Blackstone has a very busy practice to be prepared to have to do a little waiting for appointments. For me, this time just gave me the time I needed to research and prepare. rnrnShe has a very comprehensive aftercare program that addresses your nutritional, physical, and emotional needs very thoroughly. There are classes you attend both before and after surgery, optional support groups, and access to your nutritionist and physical therapist. rnrnShe was very straight forward about all the risks involved with surgery both in person and in writing. rnrnI love Dr. Blackstone. She is an excellent surgeon who cares about her patients. My surgery went very well and I am very happy with it. I am very satisfied with Dr. Blackstone and her office and I would highly recommend her. "
