Dr Blankenburg was delightful and used humor and kindness to turn a potentially uncomfortable situation into a pleasant experience. I'd definitely ask for him again if my PCP is unavailable

I have been seeing this care provider since he was a little Doogie, and have always gotten great care. He explains things clearly and shows concern about my situation. He has a good chairside manner, knows his computer skills, and uses my medical history to discuss issues that may crop up.

The Dr., nurses & staff members I spoke with met above & beyond my expectations. They were very caring & understanding with my emotional state & health. A million thanks for starting to get my health back on track. Having to deal with major depression & anxiety has been scary & I was terrified to come in & talk about everything, especially because I hadn't met with Dr. Blankenburg before. He listened, showed he cared and allowed me to feel comfortable. Thanks again!

He has been my doctor, my wife's doctor, and now my son and his family's doctor. We are feel very fortunate to have him as our doctor.

I tend to feel like just another patient he has to see today. Often doesn't go very far back in my medical history until I remind him of something. He also has a personality where he's constantly joking about things, which can be annoying and not very appropriate in this type of setting. I'm thinking about changing doctors.

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.
