The time in the waiting room was less than 15 minutes. Dr. Bleckner was both friendly and professional. He also discussed several options for the treatment of my injury and left the choice up to me.

I loved dr bleckner. He didn’t waste my time at all: he asked me great questions, had a hypothesis about the problem, gave me an X-ray and confirmed what diagnosis. Now I have a treatment plan for a problem I’ve had for years. He’s hilarious and light hearted too. So happy with him!

I trust Dr Bleckner and appreciate his efficiency and "bedside manner". My xrays were taken and reviewed quickly by Dr Bleckner. He suggested several options for treating my condition but didn't pressure me to decide. We agreed I'd follow up in 10 days to see if my condition after trying one of the option, improves.

I was very pleased with my visit today, Dr. Bleckner took his time listening to my complaints or aliments. Suggested a path to follow to try and relieve the pain and swelling in the affected areas. Subscribed medicine to help reduce the swelling and pain, and suggested a follow up if the aliments persist.
