Started as a random call that has turned out to be the best patient/physician experience. He epitomizes what medicine should be. My 12 year old has been seeing him for acne, and I cannot say it loud enough how appreciative I am for having found Dr.Blankenship. He is what every physician should be....more

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....more
