From the first time I met with Dr. Blackmon I knew I had found a physician that genuinely cared about his patients. He listens to each and every word you say and responds in a kind, caring, gentle voice. After my initial workup it was found my cholesterol was elevated somewhat and he took lots of time instructing and encouraging me to work on bringing the values down. One way to do this, he said, was regular exercise and I had negative comments about all his suggestions but he did not give up on me! At my next annual exam, with much the same findings as a year earlier, he went through the same suggestions with me and this time I realized he was not just repeating words but that he genuinely cared about my health and wanted a healthier life for me. With this I began water aerobics and was so proud to tell him this at my three month followup! I could see the pleasure in his face knowing his coaching had made me see the light and that he had helped make a difference in my life! I am so grateful for Dr. Blackmon and the MDVIP program.
