Our providers

Meet the medical providers, physicians, and our family nurse practitioner, who make up the team responsible for your health care. In addition, we rely on nurses, medical assistants, laboratory and X-ray technologists, medical records specialists, and many clerical staff to keep the office working for you.

Each of our physicians is certified by the American Board of Family Practice and supported by a staff of capable, experienced, and friendly healthcare professionals. Our certified Family Nurse Practioner (FNP) works closely with us to provide the most timely and competent care possible. The FNP supports your treatment plan by providing education and follow-up consultations. We are dedicated to providing our patients with personalized and cost-effective care. Our services begin at birth and continue throughout your lifetime. We value long-term relationships with our patients built on trust and open communication. We are primary care physicians for our patients and their families, helping to coordinate their medical care through other specialties or hospital services when needed.

Dr. Blackwell always takes the time to listen and then explain.

We love Dr Blackwell! Although we missed some of the former staff and the more casual and easy going feeling pre-Covid without masks or time constraints, we still value his input and genuine concern. The staff were efficient.

Dr. Blackwell always takes his time-answering your questions-explaining what to do after-if you anything else call the office!!

Ali is best nurse I’ve ever had. If you were feeling bad when you got there, she’d make you feel better before you left. Dr. Blackwell is super. Always listens and helps.
