Dr Blank was quick and to the point, asked me the questions she needed to make her diagnosis, and then gave me a clear diagnosis and a detailed treatment plan. She answered all of my questions and explained what was happening very clearly. Great doc!

Went there for sleep study. It took one month to have sleep study because of the waiting list. Once the sleep study is done no results nothing until we call them asked for sleep results. Even then doctor did not provide results summary in writing.

Excellent physician. No nonsense, but also has a sense of humor. Not especially warm or overly friendly, but very smart and clearly cares. She was great with both my father (age 63) and my son (age 5). She connected well with them and easily earned their trust.

Dr. Blank is great! Very personable and practical. Lots of good suggestions. The wait was a bit long because we were a new patient so had to wait to get our info entered. Hopefully the second visit wait will be less.

Office was convenient, new and professional. There is a lot of initial paperwork, so come early. I had to wait about 30 minutes passed my appointment time before I was taken back and 5-10 minutes in the exam room before I was seen. The doctor was through and professional.

My experience with Dr. Blank specifically was wonderful; I did not feel rushed and she explained everything well and answered all my questions. However, I had to wait almost an hour to be seen, simply because the receptionist took that long to input my information into the computer.
