What People Say About Dr. Erika Blanton, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Blanton is a very knowledgeable doctor. She is also very understanding and compassionate. I was having a condition that I went to 7 doctors and no one could tell me what was wrong. I had a friend recommend me to Dr. Blanton and the first time I met her I broke down crying. She diagnosed my burning vulva pain as vulvodynia and gave me medication and I have been doing fine since then. I would defiantly recommend her. Her staff is also great and caring.

Dr. Blanton is always very warm and friendly and listens to what you have to say. Another thing I like about her is that she is very open and supportive of my decisions to choose some holistic methods of healthcare (like bio-identical hormone replacement therapy)

I have been Doctor Blanton's patient for many years, since my daughter was a baby and now is 20 years old. On my last visit, which was this week, she was professional and compassionate as always. I appreciate her taking time to listen and care for me. Her attention and care for the patient is unmeasurable. She asks personal questions to understand patient's way of living better in order to give appropriate advice. I have nothing but great admiration for doctor Blanton.

Through all the many years and healthy as well as not as healthy times in my life, she has been an exceptional physician and advisor.

Dr. Blanton delivered my children (ages 38 and 35) and I would have a difficult time going to anyone else. She takes the time to listen and is always pleasant and caring. She makes you feel that you are as important to her as she is to you. I have never felt rushed!
