Dr. Blanco had my confidence from my very first visit. He was (and is) the ultimate medical professional in his physical presence and manner. After greeting me, he asked if I had been treated well in reception and what my wait time was from the time I was escorted to an examining room and he entered. Dr. Blanco laid out a clear plan, including; diagnostic tests, a measured period of observation, and ultimately, a decisive recommendation for surgery.

Dr. Blanco is a consummate professional, but very approachable and easy to talk to. He is highly skilled - he performed a complex surgery on me to remove growths in my upper neck and salivary gland, without causing significant damage to my facial nerves - a very difficult procedure to accomplish successfully. I appreciated his personal touch, he made me feel like I was his only patient - I will highly recommend him to others. Also, I appreciate his service to our nation - "Aim High!"

Dr. Blanco is a wonderful doctor. After diagnosing my throat cancer he very quickly got the ball rolling for my treatment. He immediately lined up appointments with members of his team and I listened and learned. It's overwhelming---but Dr. Blanco and his fantastic staff are so helpful. Now 18 months have passed since treatment ended and Dr. Blanco continues to take excellent followup care of me. I will forever be grateful for Dr. Blanco and would highly recommend him.

I was extremely thankful to have Dr. Blanco and his team perform surgery to remove a tumor in my parotid gland. Dr. Blanco and his team took the time to thoroughly explain my procedure and options in advance, so that I was properly educated and informed about what to expect. During surgery Dr Blanco made conscientious efforts to sift through a tedious number of facial nerves and muscles to protect them from damage and provide me with the best results for full recovery. Professional and caring.

In December 2016, my oral surgeon/dentist performed a biopsy on the two small cysts on the left side of my tongue, in his office, after receiving a negative MRI on November 30, 2016. I was referred to Dr. Blanco immediately and actually had surgery on January 17, 2017. He is extremely professional. As this was my first time having cancer, I depended on him to keep me informed. In April he also removed another lump on the incision area via biopsy in his office.

Dr, Blanco is a highly respected surgeon in the head and neck field and is respected by his peers. He is easy to talk to and has a very nice manner. Dr. Blanco is thorough and took his time explaining the details of my health situation to me. He, also, readily returned my calls and followed-up with test results with me. I cannot say enough about my experience with him and would highly recommend him.

I am so grateful to have Dr. Blanco as my surgeon. He and his staff go way beyond the limits of a medical office. Dr. Blanco was crucial in my recovery and provides excellent service.
in Perry Hall, MD |
This Doctor has been wonderful. He takes extreme care with his patients. He is taking care of my Mother having venous carcinoma. He is always there for me when I have any questions and is very easy to reach. He will always call you and check to make sure things are OK. I would not want any other Doctor caring for my Mom. Thank You Ray Blanco for everything so far. See you again in May.

Dr Blanco is one of the best Doctors' I have dealt with in my life. He talks to me & my family like we are human beings not like "just another patient". I feel very confident & secure with any and all suggestions Dr Blanco gives us. I wouldn't trade him for any other doctor. I have already told any friends & family how great he is. I believe he is the best Doctor @ GBMC & 1 of the only 1's I trust with my health.

Excellent attention, explanation and obvious interest in patient's (my) welfare. Ray Blanco applies human interest to medical diagnosis.
in Pikesville, MD |
Dr Blanco is a wonderful doctor and surgeon. He is thorough and knowledgeable. He was honest with me about the possible complications or problems which could arise with my surgery, and was kind and gentle in guiding me to make the decision to have the surgery. The surgery was flawless. He has been following me for 2 years after the surgery, and each follow-up appointment was conducted with the same thoroughness and sensitivity. I always enjoy speaking to him, and would recommend him highly.
