Dr. Blade is my whole family doctor until ours boys left town. And we all very much appreciate her kindness and willingness to spend as much time as we need to discuss our medical issues. We do not feel rushed and are able to discuss options when applicable. Lots of our friends at other medical establishment complained about their doctor not having enough time to discuss their medical issues. I suggested that they contact Dr. Blade for their care.

Dr. Kristie Blade provided an explanation for discoloration in upper calf, which looked like bruising, but caused no pain and I had no recollection of bumping any object. I did tell her that I pulled my hamstring a week or so earlier. She suggested that it was likely I tore it and the resulting blood had gathered in my calf area. She clearly provided an explanation for a condition that was baffling my wife and i. I think she is excellent!!!
