Sways a pleasure to meet with Dr. B.
As always, I continue to be impressed by Froedert and wish they could be my primary care. But they are too far from my home. This doctor was exceptional. Both extremely knowledgeable and empathetic, that is hard to find. Probably top in her field, at least that's how she comes across to me.
I was extremely satisfied with the time she took with me, especially since I was moved into a cancellation appointment! Also, Dr. Blindauer is a very personable doctor. A+
After Dr. B was finished with her assessment of me, she answered my questions and offered her opinion to help me. I'm so happy to have her as my neurologist.
I am very happy with the care I received at my appointment. I would highly recommend Dr. Blindauer.
I waited 9 months to see Karen. It was worth the wait. She was amazing and so too her staff. Bravo!
Loved Dr Karen so personal
Both the doctor and the fellow were very kind with my husband, who was extremely agitated during the appointment.

Doctor never rushed the appointment. I felt that she was very genuine.Gave me some very good information and advice.
I have a sense that dr. Blindauer really cares about her patients
Dr. Blindauer is the best. While video visits are all I need at present, I do miss seeing her in person - although I know I can request in-person visits.
As always, the care I received from Dr. Blindauer and the staff at the clinic were exceptional.
The diagnosis I received was life altering. I would've loved to of seen or heard about support groups, knowing that I'm not alone out there would help.
Dr. Blindauer and her nurse could not have been more personable, understanding, helpful, and informative.
The woman who administered my test was amazing. She is kind, compassionate and very smart

I feel very well treated & everyone is very friendly. I feel very comfortable with my doctor that she is doing the best she knows for me, Very pleased
As usual, excellent experience.
We appreciate Dr Blindauer's care. She listens and shows understanding and compassion.
Excellent , very professional and informative. Listens very well
It's difficult to get the first appointment but worth the wait (7months). The staff is very helpful/responsive over email and the anticipated televisit is a helpful format versus the travel distance and frailty of my mom under Dr B's care
Karen Blindauer is a very very good Doctor.
