Dr. Bluett was very nice & thorough.

Reviewed on May 18, 2017

I cannot say enough good about Dr Bluett. He always goes above and beyond as far as making sure I am doing okay, that he is performing the procedure well and like Regina, respectful of me as a person. I almost feel like a member of the family when I'm getting care from them. It certainly makes my condition much more tolerable by having them as my care givers. And my previous injection was the best result that I have ever had with any of the physicians and all the years that I have been receiving them!! And I have been getting them for around 20 years from a variety of doctors.

Every aspect of my visit was positive. The staff were all very courteous. Dr. Bluett was very professional, caring, and knowledgeable while maintaining an excellent bedside manner.

Dr Bleuett (sp?) is probably the best and most professional physician that I have had in all the years that I have had dystonia (almost 20 yrs) and in giving the injections necessary for me to carry on a normal life. He gets detailed feedback from the previous visit and uses that to determine the treatment. He is also extremely kind and sensitive to my comfort. He is a wonderful asset to your facility.

Dr. Bluett has referred us to OT and P which has been very helpful. After the first of the year, we will be able to take part in a clinical trial.

Dr. Bluett is great!

Reviewed on Aug 16, 2016

Dr. Bluett was a real gem of a doctor. I wish all doctors were as caring, professional, and kind. The thing I liked most about Dr. Bluett was his appreciation for humor and his compassion was off the chart. I was very nervous to hear I had Parkinson's and he gently guided me through the prognosis. He was great!
