Dr. Blanco has taken the time to thoroughly explain everything, from diagnosis through treatment, making sure I understood. He researched clinical trials open for my specific cancer and specific stage of treatment. He contacted Moffitt Cancer Research and facilitated getting me into a clinical trial. He & his staff are kind, caring and up to date on the latest research. They treat you like an individual, a family member, not just a number. Excellent doctor and staff.
