Sports Injuries and Treatment Options

Compassionate Care

Dr. Blake believes that the best way to help his patients is by taking time to understand their pain. “I sit down with them and listen to where they’re coming from and what’s not working right. I try to put them at ease by letting them know there’s something we can do to help.”

“The best part of my work is being able to walk alongside patients – who are struggling and hurting – and help them do what they want to do in life again,” he adds.

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Blake loves spending time with his family, including his wife and five children. “I spend a lot of time helping them with homework,” he laughs. “I also enjoy going to their activities like cross country, gymnastics, soccer and football.”

He also likes to read and enjoy outdoor activities such as mountain biking, snowboarding, wakeboarding, camping, fishing and hiking.

The athletic trainer guy keep saying ma'am to me in a mean way. horrible people skills. the astetics is not as important as the people inside. Remember that! we have been in a lot of health cares around the United States I would rather have knowledgeable caring staff with an older building than voice verses. That is what I experienced. Not from the dr but from the support staff

I felt that Dr. Blake listened to what I had to say. He gave me options for treatment of my condition. He explained each option in detail. He was always kind and courteous as well as the rest of the staff.

Just a long wait time, with no one else in the waiting room I waited 25minutes after my scheduled time to see my doctor for 7 minute meeting.
July 18, 2019
I was thrilled that the front office staff was able to get me in to see a doctor on such short notice that day. However, since my visit on Monday, I have called in with additional questions three times. Two of those times no one ever returned my call. I am still in pain and am wanting another appointment but can't get a call back.
