Very short time in waiting room and professional exam by Doctor Blantan which followed a discussion of my exam in her office. Always a pleasant yearly visit as usual.

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.

She always takes time for me and i never feel rushed. Her entire staff is also very warm and welcoming.

I can't say enough great things about Dr. Blanton and her staff. After moving east I struggled to find a GYN that would manage my HRT... I do compounded hormones. Not only is Dr. Blanton the PIONEER of natural HRT, but she is a wonderful physician. She takes her time to talk to you (in her personal office) and find out what issues you are having. And her nurse Brany is AWESOME!! Highly recommend Dr. Blanton and staff!

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.

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.

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.

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.
