Dr. Blanchard is the best!!! Highly recommend him...
Robert, thank you for sharing your positive experience with us! Have a great day.

Dr. Blanchard was extremely professional and very well educated. Felt very comfortable and at ease leaving with all the answers provided to my questions. Was in and out of the office in about 20 minutes! Great service!!

Dr Blachard was running behind schedule, but the wait wasn't too long so I didn't mind. He went right to my issues and I walked out pleased with my visit.

Dr. Blanchard was very professional and the exam went nicely. He answered questions I had in a very professional way. He is very knowledgeable in his field.

I was originally seeing Dr Paulson, however, he moved away and I was placed with Dr Blanchard. I've also seen the reviews about his bedside manner and was a little worried. True he doesn't have the best bedside manner, however, he knows what he's doing and that's what matters to me the most. He noticed a mark on my skin before I could even tell him. He immediately did a biopsy and ended up being skin cancer. He will now be permforming the MOHS surgery in a few weeks. I'm confident in his work

worst doctor I've ever been. very unhappy with my visit I waited for 3 months. did not even bother to examine my acne and when I asked to order test, he refused and stated that my primary Dr. had to order them, so why did my primary Dr. referred me to a dermatologist?..... waste of time......
Hello Anonymous, we're sorry that there may have been confusions with the tests available to you during your visit. We will use your information to improve our patient experience, thank you!

Worst doctor ever, needs to retire and learn to treat patients with respect. Doesn't care about the patient or their health or skin, doesn't listen, let alone allow you to even speak. No empathy, no bedside manner & to be frank, just plain rude. Very condescending & judgemental. Doesn't bother to look at the skin, but a glance, let alone touch it. Dermatologist not even touching skin or examining it in anyway-don't waste your time scheduling w/this dr. unless you need a round of antibiotics.

Dr Blanchard didn't even know that you could test for sweating issues with a starch test. He had me call my neurologist to see what test to perform. Needless to say, I left the office, and won't be going back to this doctor.
Hello Michael, thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're sorry to hear that you didn't have a positive experience, but we will take your information to better improve our patient experience, thank you.

Had a 3 o'clock appointment. Took 2 buses to get there. Was told by nasty receptionist that he spent allot of time with the previous patient, and he had an appointment. Receptionist said I 'd need to reschedule. I would not recommend this guy to my worst enemy

I don't know who this doctor thinks he is but it sounds like not only me but treats everybody else horribly . This doctor is very rude maybe he needs to retire . He does not even deserve one star

excellent surgeon and very knowledgeable

I think he may have forgotten to sterilize/swab one of the cancers he removed. His bedside manner is the worst I have ever experienced. I had 5 areas treated the second time I was there - did not take very long but he DID NOT SPEAK TO ME the entire time. He talked to the assistant - period. I was referred by GP. I let them Blanchard's office know when I left that I would not be back and was still unhappy when I got home so called my GP and let them know as well.

Would never recommend Dr.Blanchard.His bedside manner is what gives doctors their bad reputation. He was pompous and condescending speaking to his assistants and ignoring me not to mention his gruff examination. He misdiagnosed me with malignant skin cancer before any biopsy was done and directed the information to the technician,not me, that I overheard because he was standing right in front of me.

Been a patient for many years. always very satisfied with treatment.

My experience w Dr. Blanchard & LVSCC staff were exceptionally terrible. I don't think Blanchard ever came to a full stop in and out of the office the number of times we met. I was nervous to start accutane & asked for a brief rundown of expectations. He answered literally none of my questions. After a few unhelpful/rushed appointments, I completed all extensive paperwork required & staff lost it ALL. I have never death with such an inefficient/uncaring staff. Avoid, save your time & copays.

These doctors, the entire group, are scum. They have contracted with the Medicare Advantage plans and treat the patients like they are the enemy. My mom had a severe lesion and Dr. Blanchard, after HIS staff, made an appointment with him, told her he didn't see Medicare Advantage patients and walked out of the exam room. His physician assistant came in and did the biopsy. A week later we learned she had cancer and we canceled her Medicare Advantage plan and took her to a private dermatologist.

Dr Blanchard did a Mohs procedure on a basal cell lesion I have had for far too long. He was swift and quick and thorough with the removal of the lesion. He explained to me what to expect as far as follow up and scarring. He asked me personal questions while he worked to take my mind off the digging/scraping he was doing. I liked him. He was very good. He got it in one shot. Did not have to go back to remove more after the initial removal (google mohs procedure to understand more)
in Henderson, NV |
This is a busy office run by a competent, efficient staff. It is a paperless office; the usual repetitive forms have been replaced by a user-friendly computer system. Dr. Blanchard is polite, knowledgeable, and took the time to give me a more thorough examination than I expected . He solved my problems in one visit, and said there is no reason to even have a follow-up, that most doctors would have required, usually seemingly to pad their bill. This office is top notch and professional.

Worse Doctor i have ever seen in my life, his bed side manners are terrible,went there for an appointment , waited an hour and 15 minutes, saw him for 1 minute and 14 seconds , there was blood on the bad, i had a discoloration on my butt , no privacy at all ,he told me to strip which made me very very uncomfrtable, he was rushing to get out of the room i thought he might come back but never did, left his office with a million questions in my head, it was just a waste of time and money.
