Dr. Harry Blackstone is one of the best in our eyes. I had my father transported to our home. We were informed by other physicians that he was eligible for hospice. My father was not ready for that. Talk about a sick man, so weak and unable to walk at that time (he had CHF, COPD, a colostomy and his health list goes on). Our first visit with Dr. Blackstone just gave my father a completely different outlook. WHY?  Because Dr. Blackstone took the time to explain to my father about his health problems and what he was going to be doing and that he would be working together with his team & staff …(also wonderful).  They never gave up ! Dr. Blackstone has such a positive bedside manner and always took extra time… he returned many calls, and his staff was always courteous. I was so pleased they treated my father as if he was special, not just another sick old man. That was so important to myself and my father who was so ill, and knowing his time was limited. One day my father said to me, I think I found a doctor that truly cares; I saw a tear running down the side of my father’s face. This is how people need to be treated. Dr. Blackstone encouraged my father to live and enjoy life. He is a special doctor in many ways…
