Dr. Blanton was recommended by another ob/gyn in 1976 when I told him I wanted to deliver my baby via natural childbirth. Over the past 40+ years I have trusted her as much as I would a friend. She’s one of a kind, & I’m so blessed to have had her presence at the most important moments of my life.

I have been a patient of Dr. Blanton for the past 24 years. She was my doctor during the pregnancy and birth of now 21 year old daughter. She was with me during my treatment of breast cancer 9 years ago. She has been a great doctor to me and my sister and I will truly miss her.

I have 5 sisters and we all go to Dr. Blanton, as do all our friends. We highly recommend the practice, not only for Dr. Blanton’s exceptional care and listening to her patients but, the ease of getting appointments when needed, minimal office wait time, exceptionally friendly staff. From check-in to check-out it’s a pleasant experience - not cringe worthy as some of these office visits can be. I can say Dr. Blanton leaving will be sorely missed. She has endeared herself to her patients and while we know she has more than earned her retirement to do the things she loves most with the people she loves most, the Richmond community will mourn the loss of a true friend and Physician who lives by the oath. My only hope is others in/under her practice learned and live by the exceptionally high standard she has set. She is truly an example for all Physicians in practice and care. She will be sorely missed

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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Blanton's ever since I was referred to her for a second opinion. 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 has a genuine interest in , and care for, her patients and I have recommended her to many friends and colleagues who have come to feel the same way.

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!
