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.
