Excellent care--finally got some answers
first visit with Dr. Blackrick. She did not make me feel comfortable, I didn't even want to ask her questions....it seemed like she is the doctor, I am the patient, she knows what she is doing so don't take up any of her time. She is a young doctor who could use some bedside manners, that is important to patients to feel comfortable.
Friendly, efficient and caring!
Dr. Blackrick and the staff in the office of that ortho group are very efficient, organized, friendly, caring and most importantly very professional. Dr. Blackrick is very business oriented, which I like, and seems very concerned about the care of her patients and wants the best for them.
I love Dr Blackrick and have highly recommended her on international web site for tibial plateau fractures!
I had to go on disability due to my ankle and her and her staff was very good.
prompt action to my arrival and setting me up to see the doctor and staff
I owe my ability to walk today from the care provided my Dr. Blackrick and I am thankful.
I have nothing but good things to say about Dr.Blackrick and the whole staff.
Dr Blackrick was excellent! very caring listened & always addressed my concerns She gave easily understandable explanation &answers regarding my care and progress. I recommended to our HR occupational health nurse give her as a provider if anyone in this district needed an ortho provider.
Dr. Blackrick and her staff have been excellent in all aspects of encounters and care.
Dr. Blackrick was efficient, but it didn't seem like she cared too much about the problem I presented with (knee pain). She was quick to order x-rays and promptly dismissed me to another specialist. She was also abrupt and came across as rushed and as if she didn't have time to listen to all of my concerns. Her bedside manner could use some improvement.
very good experience
I remain very impressed with this doctor. She has shown professionalism and compassion through my entire treatment experience.
excellent doctor and staff
I visited this office about 5 times, and every visit was great. The receptionist is very friendly and helpful, and Dr. Blackrick was also very helpful and explained everything well.
I got an appointment right away. They took me in to the exam room right away and Doctor saw me within a ew minutes. Dr. Blackrick left the room to look at my test results/X-rays, and returned right away.
Excellent doctor, very direct!
I had a very good experience with this new provider. She was attentive to my needs, carefully explained what she was doing, and answered my questions. I am glad to have her as my new ortho Dr.
I thought Dr. Blackrick was very blunt and did not have a good bedside manner. In the two visits that I had with her, I basically left in tears. I am a pharmacist with an MBA and I am not a stupid person, but I did not feel that she showed me concern over my questions. I was very disappointed.
Dr. Blackrick and her staff were very helpful and professional. I would definitely recommend them to others.
My provider seemed to be in a rush. I didn't feel like I received high quality care.
No bad experiences at all
I wish all my medical appointments were as fabulous as this appoint. The people at the front desk are fast, they clearly like their jobs, and are very caring about not making people wait, getting the right f/u appt, and getting billing correct from their end of things. The physician assistant was very medically knowledgeable. Both she and the doctor showed me my initial AND follow-up xrays and explained what they were looking for. I feel they do this for EVERYONE and not just because I'm a MD that works for UPMC, because none of my paperwork had that info on it. I give them a 110% and have only great things to say about everyone in the office!!!
best experience ever.
Dr Blackrick is the best!
Dr Blackrick was my trauma surgeon. I have followed up with her three times and found her to be very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and a genuine caring for my situation. I would certainly recommend her as I would any UPMC physician.
Dr Blackrick, her PA Stephanie, and all of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They all took a genuine concern for my well being and answered any questions I had. One of the best experiences I have had at a doctors office from beginning to end
Quick and professional
Dr. Blackrick and her staff are a pleasure to visit. No complaints, just praise. Never feel rushed and they answer all questions. You are lucky to have them associated with UPMC.
I felt that she answered my questions and took the time to listen and explain any of my concerns. I felt very comfortable with the care provider and her skills as a doctor.
Very pleased with Dr Blackrick and the staff at her office
They where very helpful and professional
Excellent listening skills and responded promptly to my concerns.
I really like Dr. Blackrick she is really good.
Dr. Blackrick is my orthopedic surgeon and though I live in Africa, I cam home to be discharged from her service, one year after she gave me back my smashed leg. she is great as a doctor and as a human person.
The care provided by Dr. Blackrick and the entire office staff was exceptional - Everyone was knowledgeable, respectful and interested in my issue - Not just listening to my concerns, but working to address my concerns and suggest the best possible solution/outcome for my medical issue.
Dr. Blackrick is fantastic. From the time she talked to me before my surgery, to all of my visits, she has always been very knowledgeable, and explained every thing in detail. She knows her stuff! I would Highly recommend anyone to see her. She is honest and straightforward in a caring way!
very efficient, felt dismissed with concerns, given choices in regards to treatment. all staff were helpful and convenient.
This provider treated my brother, and did an excellent job. That is the reason I sought her out for my knee condition.
