Excellent provider
Mar 16, 2020
Dr. Blackshear was incredibly nice attentive to my issues. she listened to all my concerns and was very thorough in explaining everything to me. Her P.A. and front desk staff were also very nice and professional. She brought a nebulizer and medication for me to try in the exam room which was very helpful in allowing me to breathe much more freely. Dr. Blackshear and her staff followed up with me after I was home and also communicated by email to see how I was doing. I felt very comfortable with her and I am happy to have her as my Primary Care Physician. I will gladly recommend her and the Abrazo Medical Center to anyone needing a referral for a primary physician.

Kristine Blackshear is very friendly and informative...and she knows my preferences for natural approach first. this visit was more about inquiry and tests to identify problem before discussing solutions. research mode. she is very thorough and usually explains things very well. I like being educated. i also like being listened to. my concerns are her concerns. i am ultimately in charge of my body. she tests, discusses issues, and we come to decisions together. good partnership.
