“We have been seeing Dr Blackmon since Feb 2012. He has done a total knee replacement on me plus 5 procedures on my hands all with great results. He has done two procedures on my wife again with great results. He is the only doctor my wife trusts with knee, hip and hand injections. He is the most personable doctor WE have ever seen. We trust him completely without reservation, he is the BEST. He genuinely cares.”
