Dr. Blake practiced in Blackfoot, Idaho from 2006 through 2011. While in Blackfoot he served as a Regional Dean for Pacific Northwest University.

Dr. Blake welcomes patients of all ages—newborns through senior citizens. His medical practice philosophy is simple—if it doesn’t improve the quality or the quantity of life, then we ought not to be pursuing it.
He enjoys reading, traveling, and collegiate sports. He is a gadget nut. He and his wife are the proud parents of 5 children.
