SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Doctor & physician both understood quality of care was the most important to me than...

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

It was all good!

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

Dr. Blayney very carefully went over my concerns with me.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

Very understanding, with my problems.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Dr. Blayney is all I could wish for in a physician.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Dr. Blayney was very generous w/his time and explained things well (very professional approach).

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

I thought Dr. Blayney was great. I wanted him to treat me but while deciding on this, he took days to return my calls.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

After my visit, I called 2 times to get new results. This was frustrating, 9 days after visit I finally got slide results.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

Just saw Dr. Blayney one time but I was impressed I do not qualify for a trial.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

He left the exam room twice for at least 15-20 minutes each time after saying he'll be right back. I was only changing my clothes. Also, he seemed disinterested in me & my health. He did not know my medical history. Some of my info wasn't scanned into the computer.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

Caring, thoughtful, friendly.
