Hi....I Absolutely would refer Dr. Blanco to anyone and everyone. He is so tremendously compassionate and has wonderful bedside manner. I went to him after a pulmonary embolism since I was very concerned about my recovering process and I did not have a pulmonary doctor. I made my appointment with Dr. Blanco and he was so caring and explained everything in great detail as well as his wonderful staff. I Thank God that he is my doctor. God Bless you Dr. Blanco!! Sincerely, Mary Toti

Dr Blanco was my mothers Doctor . He was outstanding ,always caring and never in a hurry always had time for her and never give up. Although she was 96 he was always there to help and do the very best he could for her . He is one of the most caring and concerned Doctor we have ever had dealing with. We drove from Mississippi for her appointments .all the staff are just great.

Dr. Blanco is one of the few doctors in my husbands long life that he came home extolling his great experience with. Having worked for doctors most of my life its the wife who usually has to call behind her husband's back and give the details of what his problems really are. If a guys arm is falling off he will book and appt. for shoulder pain. Dr. Blanco gets to the real problem and covers all his concerns with his patient. Thank you, Anne Bass
