Dr. Jeff Blake M.D., FACOG FPMRS
Dr. Blake is board-certified in Obstetrics & Gynecology and has received his sub-specialty board certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. Jeff received his medical degree from Indiana University, completed internships and residencies at Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and has been serving the Anderson, Indiana area since 1992.

Jeff sub-specializes in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, providing consultation and comprehensive management of women with complex benign pelvic conditions, lower urinary tract disorders, and pelvic floor dysfunction. Jeff was one of the first physicians in Indiana to provide cutting edge procedures like laparoscopic hysterectomy for uterine problems, and InterStim for urinary incontinence. His experience, skill, innovative philosophy and compassionate spirit have made him one of Anderson's most respected and sought after physicians. You don’t have to talk with him long to understand that what motivates him is his compassion to help his patients.

A resident at St. Vincent Anderson/Roby Building in Anderson, Dr. Blake is able to partner with the hospital in pursuing continued advancements in gynecologic care. Dr. Blake fits right in with the innovative philosophy at St. Vincent Health and its highly skilled medical staff. Dr. Blake also performs surgeries at Community Hospital Anderson and is now seeing patients at St. Vincent Fishers Hospital.

As of August 2010, Dr. Blake has refocused his practice towards gynecology. Although he still treats infertility and follows pregnancies through the first trimester to confirm viability, after much thought and deliberation, Dr. Blake has given up his obstetrical practice including pregnancy management and deliveries. This will allow more time and commitment to furthering advancements and quality in speciality women's care. See article in The Herald Bulletin for more information.

Jeff, his wife Jen, and their four children, Emily, Amanda, Ethan, and Andrew live in nearby Pendleton. They love living in a smaller community with a hometown feel, enjoying their land, woods, creek and space to work outside. Among other things, Jeff enjoys photography, gardening, cooking, camping and landscaping (with 10 acres there's a lot to do). He also enjoys drawing and painting, model railroading, swimming, running, construction, water gardening playing trumpet and piano, and driving his tractor. He's a creative guy with a warm, outgoing personality that patients appreciate. Jen is busy as an active volunteer in their community and schools. Their faith is at the center of their lives and they are both are very involved with church activities.
