Care provider tried to figure out the reason for my pain. He told me to try stopping one medication for 2 weeks. It might be causing my pain. He ordered two blood tests for possible reason. Hopefully, he might order an imaging...but he didn't indicate that as a future option. I'm assuming he is following a protocol, but he didn't tell me that.

All of the staff at this office were incredibly friendly. Dr. Blankenburg also stayed longer to address my concerns and make sure that I had a full understanding of everything. He makes light of painful situations and brings a sense of humor when things are feeling down. I appreciate everything that he and the staff do!

dr Blankenburg's expertise was demonstrated not only in the office, but one week after, he had additional questions and ordered a blood test for me. This shows that he was thinking of me after I left the office. That is the sign of excellence and ultimate in providing care.

Dr. Blankenberg is an awesome doctor and has helped me lose weight, and keep it off, for the first time in my life. I have another issue that has been a problem for a few months and he seems to have "cured" it in just a few days. I recommend him highly to anyone that will listen.

Best Physician I've had in 30+ years of annual physicals. He does a good job of motivating me to stay on track and do the right thing. Back in June I had a nerve issue - he was spot on with a medication that would work and follow-up.
