In 2019 my health was going in the wrong direction. I was overweight and had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I met Dr. Donald Blackmon, MDVIP. He gave me an extensive physical exam.

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
As one of the few internal medicine doctors in Northwest Florida offering this personalized healthcare approach, I provide a level of care that can help make a happy, healthy future your reality. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time.
My practice is located in Pensacola, Florida, and serves patients from south Alabama through the western counties of northwest Florida, including Gulf Breeze, Niceville, Perdido, Spanish Fort, Lillian and Pensacola. We focus on preventive care in addition to all aspects of primary care. I am affiliated with Sacred Heart Hospital with admitting privileges.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Blackmon
I have been through the most difficult times with my health since 2016. My husband and I can honestly say that we do not know how we would have been able to get through these difficult times without Dr. Blackmon's excellent medical care and concern. He has gone above and beyond what we could have expected and we are truly grateful for our physician/patient relationship with Dr. Blackmon… See more
Having one doctor that has all my information has been a great relief. I was seeing no less than 5 doctors and no one knew what the other was prescribing. My neighbor told me about Dr. Blackmon.

My life went upside down and my brain spent time in a state of confusion. My then treating PA told me my medical issues were "too complicated" and I needed to find a new doctor… See more
We have had good doctors in our lives but we started to notice that our access time to doctors had decreased. We had been very disappointed about that situation as both of us have health problems. Dr. Blackmon had been mentioned to us by many of our friends at our life care facility who use his services and were told they were given access and help immediately when they called. My husband and… See more
