Dr B is a marvel: warm, extremely bright and knowledgeable, and thorough. No reservations in recommending her.

Dr. Blasko appears to be genuinely happy to see me every time I visit, which is very rarely as she is very good at her job. Dr. Blasko has allowed me to return to endurance sports and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Dr Blasko was very nice, but I would only recommend using her office if you are older and/or suffering from foot problems related to diabetes. The office also tailors to Russians, as in I was asked if I spoke or my parents spoke Russian, I am not Russian. They also took measurements in the metric system. Its a little quirky, they give you a tour and a welcome gift, but very friendly and glad to have new patients.
