Dr Blando has been my Primary Physician for over 15 years. She always listens, has a way of determining what course of action needs to be taken even when my symptoms are vague and I have a had time explaining. Her nurse, Kim, is also a joy to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring, experienced, educated and knowledgeable physician.
in Ramona, CA |
I've been with Dr. Blando for 12 years because she listens to what I'm saying, even when some of it might not seem relevant. She doesn't form an immediate or incomplete opinion, then ignore any symptoms/issues that don't fit, like some doctors I've had in the past. I don't feel rushed, and feel like her attention is focused on me, not on the patient before me or whether she's late for another appointment. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Brando is always a considerate listener. She shows compassion listening to my ailments. I trust her completely.

I would only recommend this office and doctor if you want to spend a lot of money for very little. Had a follow up for an office visit which was billed at $200, same charge as the initial visit. Seems like a lot of money to pay to have a slight dosage change in a medication. Won't be using this office ever again.
