My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Blackmon for many years. We are very happy we followed him as he joined MDVIP. The wonderful convenience of being able to reach him 24/7 if we have a problem that needs attention and/or to get an office appointment with him the day we call and need to be see him is truly golden. It is a very comforting feeling to know that my doctor is only a phone call away, no matter what the time or day or where I am--if I am traveling. Dr. Blackmon responds to my needs and concerns and takes an active part in my care if I need surgery, etc . He motivated me to lose weight (gave me his own specialized diet), to change my eating habits and life style, and to be diligent about my exercise. I feel so much healthier and the weight loss was the best thing I ever did. He spends time with me and he answers all my questions and concerns and explains things easily and readily. With him motivating me and monitoring me regularly, I have been able to reduce the amount of medication I was taking which is a big plus for me and will continue to reduce my meds as needed and warranted. We feel that Dr. Blackmon is way ahead of the curve in recommending health changes and is extremely well read and informed. Both my husband and I sincerely appreciate his effort and concern for us and our overall health and both feel very fortunate and lucky to have Dr. Blackmon as our primary physician.
