in Largo, FL |
Answered my questions with clarity based upon numerous scientific references readily available upon request. I found his approach to be open to inquiry. I found his interaction with me to be wholly professional & business-like.

I cannot recommend Dr. Blanchard due to a combination of his approach and his office's customer service. I find his personal manner to be condescending and felt like he was pushing me about using diet pills rather than listening to me about my symptoms. The diet pill would cost $300 a month, and require a $50 copay visit to him every month. He renewed my prescription for only three months anticipating I would lose weight. 10 business days, 9 calls, no renewal. I have to make yet another apt.

I felt like nothing more then a paycheck totally cold void of actual care and feeling pretty much felt like he didnt even wanna do his job . Not to mention a staff of usually three on hand yet cant return calls or offer any real help when they are required . pretty a conductor asleep at the wheel while the rest breeze without any real effort or sense of care .I should have listen to this rating when i saw it before i chose to see him but i hope you make a better choose find someone else
