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.

My only 4 rating is because I was told, when I made the appointment, that I would receive some papers in the mail prior to my visit. These papers consist of all the questions on my health. I did not receive it. Instead I felt very rushed to complete it while in the waiting area.

I am always treated with the utmost respect. I have no complaints at all.
Nov. 21, 2019

I rely on Dr. Blindauer's advice regarding any and every issue that comes up with respect to my illness. She is always right.
Aug. 29, 2019
She was one of the best doctors I've ever seen. She asked me a lot of questions and listened to the answers. She knew about the interactions among my 11 Rx's without having to look anything up. Rather than ordering tests, she made her diagnosis using our conversation and some physical tests. She explained what my problem was, that it would never go away, but explained ways I could mitigate the symptoms. I left reassured that I did not have Parkinson's, but essential tremors. She explained medications used to treat that, and their side effects, but allowed as how I did not have to start taking them now. I was relieved and it was a very positive experience.

Dr Fee listened to my concerns and questions and gave me excellent feedback and advice.
Aug. 15, 2019
Dr. Blindaur has been my neurologist for many years. I see her annually in follow up and always have a sense of continuity of care. She is exceptionally knowledgeable about my condition, treatment options and pharmaceutical options. I have the highest confidence in her.
Aug. 7, 2019
Though not agreeing with my decision regarding medication she was very polite and respectful in her discussion with me. Had family with me and she was very polite! and included them and their opinions in the discussion. I disagreed with the weight I was told and she took the time to re-weigh me !-and I was right!! she was very polite and focused on me and looked at me the vast majority of the time. Asked me good questions to elaborate on my decision which I thought was well done by her. And since my next appointment isn't for 6 months she set up - wrote out - a plan should I happen to change my mind during that time. That way I don't have to wait until my next appointment to get started in medication if I decide to do that.
