Dr. Blindauer takes time to talk WITH me & listen to me without feeling rushed. While she wants me to make informed decisions in my health care, she listens to & "reads" me & identifies when I'm overwhelmed * need to step away from specific decision making, she offers her opinion in what could be best for me. She is expertly knowledgeable, both calming & humorous, & caring. Plus, she's from Sheboygan!

Dr. Blindauer has a positive attitude/disposition when dealing with the concerns that I have with my PD. She listens carefully to, and answers my list of questions completely & without me feeling rushed or dismissed. I feel that my treatment plan is a team effort where she is willing to work with my ideas & wishes for care moving forward. I generally feel encouraged with where I am in the PD journey after my visits with her. She is a valuable asset in my PD treatment.
