Care Philosophy

Every person who goes to see a doctor is in pain or worried. The doctor's first job is to relieve pain or worry. Hope is the breath of life, and the doctor's second job is to always provide hope. All physicians have a sacred duty to provide their best possible service to their patients. That involves diagnosing accurately, communicating clearly, supplying the information to make decisions, performing procedures safely when necessary, and setting patients on a course to better health.

I was so nervous to have my heart cath done...just had no idea what to expect. Dr. Blankenship came in to talk to me before the procedure, and I immediately felt better. He told me he had a great team, and he was right!!! Everyone was awesome, eased my fears, and it was over before I knew it. Also, came in after as well to explain everything again. Top Notch!

Dr. Blankenship did my heart cath, almost two years ago. As a horrified 21 year old going into this, he was wonderful. I felt confident and trusted him. I could not have asked for a better cardiologist.
