I heartily recommend Dr Blanco!

Dr. Blanco came to see me as soon as I had a heart attack, recommended by my PCP. What a blessing that was. He has been my cardiologist, and has been wonderful. He is friendly and professional. He cares about me and my well being. I will continue to be his patient.

Dr. Blanco is warm and friendly in person. However, trying to get any feedback over the phone or after testing is a nightmare. Once the testing is done, he is done with you. He doesn't call you if your tests are "normal" - so even if you are actually experiencing some kind of heart symptoms, he isn't interested in getting to the bottom of them. As long as he has done the tests and collected the fees, he is satisfied.
We are sorry to hear this and truly value your feedback. Patient experience is important to us at The Heart Institute, so we will make every effort to address any concerns you may have. Your comments have been shared with the physician. If you would like to speak with someone about this experience, please reach out to Jordan, the Practice Manager, at 727-329-1613.
