SHC Patient, Feb 2016

I commute from Southern California to see Dr. Blevins. He is gracious in every way offering a complete, easy to understand explanation of the diagnosis and plan of treatment

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Good MD, responded to the reason for my visit, although I wish he had read the previous notes more thoroughly before coming in the room, and the resident before him as well

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Dr. Blevins, is an outstanding Dr. Medical competence, communication skills and his willingness to go beyond What is required of his specialty to ensure my overall health. For example if I have a medical issue not within his specialty he will suggest other doctors appropriate to my medical needs. I've seen a lot of doctors from primary care to specialist, Dr. Blevins is amongst the best in all categories.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

I am completely satisfied with my treatment I get from both of my doctors at Stanford.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Blevins is the best!

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

I really appreciate Dr. Blevins for answering my questions. Demonstrates genuine concern for my well-being. I am very pleased and satisfied with having Dr. Blevins as my MD and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Blevins performed an excellent cochlear implant on me; very few side effects or pain, healing very well. Exceeded my expectations.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Blevins was very easy to relate to. I greatly appreciated his time, knowledge and expertise.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Again, Dr. Blevins was super behind and busy that day, so I understand that he was a rushed.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Blevins is wonderful!

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I am grateful to Dr. Blevins for giving me my heart back! I already hear a big different. Enormous thanks.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr Belevins is one of the best doctors I have ever encountered. I can't say enough good things about him.

Each visit I learn more about my condition. I am very impressed with Dr. Blevins ability to make complex medical issues understandable.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Blevins is the best! Nothing bad to say about him.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Dr. Blevins is truly an exceptional MD and caring individual. He is intelligent, sensitive to his patient's needs, and a very skilled surgeon. I would not have wanted any other ENT surgeon to perform surgery on my ear. Stanford is very fortunate to have him on its faculty. Dr. Blevins.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Dr Blevins has been a very nice experience. Usually I'm on the other side of the patient experience as a nurse so its hard being a patient. I read up on him extensively before deciding to let him do any procedures on me. He's been very patient with my long list of questions and answered them all. He's a great physician and I'd recommend him to anyone needed this type of work.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

excellent doctor, but not a people person.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Dr. Blevins is the best doctor of a lifetime in every one of these areas and beyond. He maintains a genuine personal connection and truly cares- along with being professional and one of the best patient teaching providers I've ever seen. He is your gold standard. Please take care of him.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Exceptionally good experience.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

When I mentioned one symptom, he said that's interesting,but then didn't explain why. Now I feel that I missed the chance to follow up on that.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Dr. Blevins is such a great man, kind, smart! I'm impressed by his professionalism! I can't even describe how thankful I feel. The best ever doctors I've seen.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Dr. Blevins is wonderful, kind & explained my up coming surgery with great detail. Everyone has been very helpful! Thank you so much!
