I had seen Dr. Blake for my ACL injury. He messed up my surgery and I had to undergo another treatment just a few weeks after that. Not only that, he blamed me for everything and took no responsibility for his actions. He is an arrogant fool so it’d be best to avoid him.
I was certain that I wouldn’t need the treatment for anything else for at least a few months. But I was wrong. This guy had urged me to undergo surgery in order to recover properly from the condition. I was hoping that the surgery will get rid of the pain I was experiencing and make things smoother for me. I was a little surprised to see that he didn’t suggest anything else. I’m not a moron. I had done some online research before visiting his place. I had found out that the most common treatment for an ACL injury is rest. But he didn’t suggest me rest. In fact, he didn’t even mention the term. He saw my file, saw my injury and told me that I needed to undergo a surgery. I asked him then about the rest and would that be good for me. It was as if I had caught him off-guard. He paused for a while and then told me that I only needed a surgical procedure and nothing else. Then he told me to trust him and gave me a long lecture on the importance of trust. Even after he had done the surgery on my knee, I was hopeful that I would get rid of this painful condition. But I was so wrong.
After a few weeks, I felt that strong pain come back and it was worse than before. I couldn’t stand up, I couldn’t walk and I was helpless. I went to see another doctor at the time. The other doctor told me that my ACL was damaged and the surgery wasn’t done properly. It was like Blake had just placed the ligament there without any care. So it was inevitable for me. When I enquired about it, I found out that I needed to take rest for a few weeks (4-6) and if that didn’t show any progress, I might have to undergo another surgery. So Blake did nothing apart from a botched surgery. He didn’t tell me about other treatment options. He didn’t let me choose any treatment option. He didn’t do the surgery properly. And when I contacted him later, he didn’t even accept his mistake. According to him, I had been careless with the guidelines and he was not accountable for this new problem. He is a heartless and arrogant goon. I don’t think it’s safe for anyone to trust him. I’d suggest you go someplace else and find some other doctor who is responsible and caring. Blake is not a good doctor. He is just someone who doesn’t know what he’s supposed to do. He won’t even admit his mistake.
