I'm a nurse and have been seeing Kirstin since I moved here in 2005. Many times my insurance was not excepted because of job changes, but I always stay with Kirstin and pay cash.
Dec 30, 2020
I was a little unsure of what to do/expect after first step of my test results came back. I did not know if the doctor was going to call or if I had to call to see what to do next.

Kirstine Blackshear exceeded my expectations. If there was another column beyond very good labeled as "EXCELLENT" I would have checked all sections as "Excellent. Kirstine is better than all doctors I have consulted in my past. Abrazo Medical group is fortunate to have Kirstine on their staff.
