I have been seeing him for a year now including endosocopy and colonoscopy. I felt he got lazy in research in a lack of an attempt to solve my concerns at one point but overall, he is very persistent in finding something that helps. Seems to care. Professional and kind every visit.

I've never had such a positive experience at a doctor's office before. Everyone, from the receptionists to the nurse to Dr. Blank, was incredibly kind and made me feel at ease. Plus, I was in and out in 30 minutes, which must be some kind of world record. I would feel confident in recommending this practice to anyone.
