Review of Dr. Blankstein

-

Dr Blankstein and his staff have been wonderful from beginning of hip replacement process.Everyone has been excellent at communicating with me. Sonething that I think is hard to find in today’s medical world.I highly recommend Dr Blankstein and UVM Medical Center for Total Anterior Hip Replacement .

He was not nice, talked down to me, would not recommend him to anyone. Efo through the roof, acted like you were wasting his time. This is the third time I have had to tone down what I would like to say in order for them to publish this. Do not see this guy. I plan to speak to the hospital coordinator about him.

Review of Dr. Blankstein

Knee joint replacement surgery was one year ago. Throughout the whole process from the initial visit for evaluation to the one year post-op check, Dr. Blankstein has been honest, supportive and encouraging. My knee is now stabile and pain free. Should my other knee require surgical intervention, I would not hesitate one minute to call him. Tom Munn

Review of Dr. Blankstein

-

Dr. Blankstein was fantastic. I had my right hip replaced back in February 2018 and the recovery time was very quick, within two to three weeks, walking with no assistive devices and amazing the difference between before and after surgery. It's now been a little over a year and back to playing hockey and other activities I couldn't do before the surgery. Highly recommend Dr. Blankstein.

Dr Blankstein is my hero! I suffered for a year with avascular necrosis in my rght hip. Dr Blankstein was supportive, encouraging and up front with me right from the beginning of my journey. Surgery was not a problem due to the exceptional team Dr Blankstein had around him. immediately after surgery the pain was gone! Dr Blankstein and his team are amazing!!

Dr. Blankstein is an awesome surgeon! From the diagnosis, through pre-treatment , surgery and post care he was friendly, respectful and encouraging! I probably asked more questions than any other patient, but he always responded with answers that my husband and I could understand. His staff was as courteous , caring and respectful as well. I would whole heartedly recommend Dr. Blankstein for knee replacement surgery!

Review of Dr. Blankstein

- in South Burlington, VT |

After a year of pain in my hip, I was diagnosed with a deterioration of the hip joint. Not having had any experience with orthopedic surgeons, I was fortunate to make an appointment with Dr. Blankstein. He took time to explain my condition, surgery and related possible risks , as well as what to expect during recovery. I found Dr. Blankstein to be a compassionate and experienced surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Blankstein! My surgery was a complete success!!
