Doctor Blankenship has been an incredible asset in my pursuit of healthy skin. He's kind and always explains everything in great detail. He is efficient without seeming rushed or hurried; though he is typically booked more than 30 days out. If I were you I wouldn't go anywhere else for dermatology. It's also nice that's he's incredibly attractive. +1 extra credit.
