Kirstine Blackshear is the very best provider I have ever had. She sat with me and listened to me. She took her time and I did not feel rushed. For the first time, I felt like a provider understood me and helped me. She is an excellent care provider. I can't thank her enough and look forward to seeing her again for my wellness visit. Thank you so very much.

Jun 28, 2019
This office and staff really cares about me. Greet me by my first name I credit them for saving my life last year as I was in the waiting room and had an electrical problem with my heart and my heart went to 208. I panicked they took my blood pressure and heart rate and rushed me downstairs to the emergency room whete I spent 74 minutes to get my heart under control and to the hospital where a few weeks later had heart ablation surgery I will never forget there quick response to help they saved my life I'll always be so grateful for their quick response.

May 25, 2019
very efficient
May 24, 2019
when I have called because I don't feel well, it is hard to get in. I have been told that they don't have any openings (when I need to be seen). so I don't bother calling at all and suffer through This is through the main line. when I can call straight to the office, they usually find a way to get me in. I appreciate that.
May 24, 2019
I really like Dr Blackshear. I have been with her for quite a while. I don't always like what she tells me, but it's probably for my own good.
May 24, 2019
I prefer being the first appt of the day. I usually have to be fasting and this makes it easier. so usually. no wait time.

May 9, 2019
This was my first time seeing Dr. Blackshear. She was very thorough and efficient.
May 8, 2019
I wasn't notified that my doctor appointment was cancelled and the front registration staff wanted to reschedule me for the week after. I tried scheduling near Avondale, but they rescheduled me in Buckeye. I told her I wanted to speak to a supervisor, so I could be reassigned to another physician.
May 8, 2019
I spent some time with the front staff trying to clarify what happened with my canceled doctor appointment that I wasn't notified about.
May 7, 2019
none so far
May 7, 2019
none
May 7, 2019
she answer my questions.
May 6, 2019
Since, I have been using the Buckeye Facility I no longer has panic attacks or dread in having an appointment. For the past 10 years I hated going to the Doctor's off or dealing with any of the staff, it was ALWAYS an argument with the staff about appointments and it was worse with the doctor, wanting to run tests that were just done a month or two before then because I wasn't a dummy senior citizen she passed me off to her PA who was not any better. The Abrazo Medical Group in Buckeye, have always treated me with respect and make me feel welcomed. The Staff in the front office are sharp pleasant and actually talk to a person as if they had known them for sometime.
May 5, 2019
All Good.
May 5, 2019

I showed up two hours early on accident. I was able to be seen any way instead of having to wait. The staff was very kind and helpful
Apr 30, 2019

I started going there 15 years ago, in Buckeye Az. I moved 20 miles away and still go there, making a round trip of 40 miles.
Mar 29, 2019
If you had an Excellent spot here, I would have clicked on it.
Mar 29, 2019
Wait time depends on your problem. They spend as much time as necessary to exam you and talk about your problems as needed. I've been to doctors in Ca before I moved here 15 yr ago who only had 15 minutes for their patients. This office makes sure they understand and give you the meds needed.
Mar 28, 2019

I only give a lower score for contacting them on the phone because the number to their office on Google is not accurate. It connects you to the Goodyear office
Mar 16, 2019
She is always very sweet and informative. I really like that she gave me different options that could help me and genuinely cared which one I wanted to pursue. us patients sometimes feel embarrassed talking about our problems but she always makes me feel much better.

I love the fact that Kirsten Blackshear moved over to Abrazo! I have never minded having to wait a little while to see her because I know she is giving someone else the same superb level of care and attention that she gives me. It is so hard to find doctors that really care about their patients nowadays, I don't know what I would do without her!
Jan 23, 2019
I have had nothing but good experiences when coming to this office.

I don't particularly like going to the doctors, but seeing Kirstin Blackshear and her great " bedside " manner, and personality, I enjoy being there.
