I am a 62 year old female who just had an endoscopy/colonoscopy with Dr. Bianchi. She was a new gastro to me and I could not have felt more at ease and well cared for. I felt she really understood women's issues and was most competent in every way. She gives each patient a little lavender pillow to take home!!! How sweet is that!! I highly recommend this doctor to anyone.

It took months to get an appt even though my internist sent her a note saying I needed urgent care. When I finally got to see her, she was condescending, cruel about my weight problem ( I have documented, diagnosed metabolic syndrome), and she prescribed an inadequate regimen of meds for severe gastro pain. I later went to a different doctor who did an emergency colonoscopy and found massive ulcer. I wish I'd sued her for malpractice, but I couldn't bear to see her again.
