Patient Comments (13)
in Williamsburg, VA |
Dr. Blanton is wonderful and I do recommend her wholeheartedly. I went to this practice because my previous gynecologist was really not addressing my health problems. Dr. Blanton explained all of my options and made her professional recommendation, which I followed. Fortunately I was able to choose a minimally invasive procedure and it has been smooth sailing for two years. The office staff are very courteous and professional. I really cannot say enough good things about this practice.
Our practice aims to deliver the highest quality patient care. We love to hear about these positive experiences. Thanks for sharing this feedback with us!

I have been a patient of Dr. Blantons for approximately 25 years. She delivered my daughter 19 years ago and she also delivered my nephew 32 years ago and my niece 24 years ago. She is the only gynecologists I have seen. She is a great physician and a caring person. I don't look forward to the day that she retires. She was very supported of me when I was going through breast cancer 6 years ago. I have been very fortunate to have her as my doctor for the past 25 years.

I've been seeing Dr. Blanton for many years. She is caring, patient, and takes the time to answer questions/concerns. Her staff is always pleasant and even though she has many patients, the entire staff will make you feel as if you are their number one priority no matter how busy they are. I highly recommend Dr. Blanton!

There is no other like Dr Blanton. She is thorough, knowledgeable and a joy to talk with on a personal level. Nothing but class. I will sorely miss her if she ever decides to retire.
Henrico, NC |
Dr Blanton is so warm, caring and concerned. Most of all, her years of experience have molded her into a phenomenal health care provider. She takes time to talk with me and answers all my questions thoroughly. She gives great advice. A friend recommended her to me and I will continue to drive an hour and a half for such great care. Also her staff are friendly and very professional. Her nurse, Lynette, was especially kind and caring.
Prince George, VA |
Dr. Erika Blanton is a wonderful, caring, patient and gifted doctor. She puts the welfare of her patients in the forefront and she is always up to date on changes in the medical field as it relates to women. She has been my OBGYN doctor for more than 15 years and I rave about her all the time. She takes time with you in her office to uncover any issue you may be having or to talk to you about your overall health. You won't go wrong if you become one of her patients.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

Dr. Blanton is the best Dr. in the world. Her knowledge and expertise far surpass any Dr. I have ever met. In 2007 Dr. Blanton identified and took action to correct a medical issue that would have ended my life. PFor 2 years prior to that time no Dr. was able to identify the issue. She literally saved my life. I have been her patient for over 15 years and highly recommend Dr. Blanton to all women who want the best womens care available.

Very straightforward and easy to talk to.
in Culpeper, VA |
Dr. Blanton is my mothers doctor and she delivered me. She is a wonderful doctor, very knowledgeable and easy to talk to.
in Richmond, VA |
I did not mind waiting because there had been an emergency that she needed to which she needed to attend. However, I happened to be able to calculate the time from entering the exam room to being dressed and in the elevator leaving because of texting. 9 minutes. Clearly, this is not an appropriate amount of time to attend to my general health and welfare.

I was referred by my pediatrician at the age of 15 to her because I was having my first female issues. I stayed under her care until my late 20's due to my insurance not under her plan. I was devastated! I wasn't able to find another obgyn as good and caring as her. Fortunately, a few years later I changed jobs and so did my insurance. I was able to get back in her care. She has such a special connection she makes that shows that she truly cares about your health as well as you a person.
in N. Chesterfield VA |
She came very highly recommended.I explained my complicated and very painful gynecology & gastro problems for many yrs.A hysterectomy was agreed on by all Dr's. involved, I told my PvP & gastro Dr.Returned 2 weeks later, waited 2-3 hrs only to be told she had changed her mind ,i was in shock.Never was given an explaination, perhaps she was too busy going room to room taking care of expectant moms.This I could hear, my time was important also.This was disrespectful & rude. Other Dr's confused too
