Huge thank you to Dr. Blank for helping gain admittance into the hospital so the ER wouldn't just send me home in pain again. I wish every doctor was like you.

A family member was recommended to Doctor Blank by a radiologist group who sends people to him all the time. They walked in, nurse said to get into a gown. Dr. Blank walked in and said he couldn't help and walked out. How did this guy become a doctor. These days it's all in the delivery even if you really can't help the patient. Clearly this doctor hasn't learned that yet.

This doctor treated my wife to our satisfaction. His staff is extremely rude, both in his office and in his surgery center. Beware the office claims to accept your insurance, but his anesthesiologist does not, thus leaving you with a bill to pay. His billing person 'Elvira' will tell you that you have no choice.

Dr. Blank is amazing, he is very knowledgeable in his field and spent a lot of time with me however his front desk staff at his Freehold office is very unprofessional, the woman was looking down at her phone the entire time as I was waiting to check in, she was unbelievably rude to me and regardless of my ongoing GI condition, I just can't bring myself to continue with this office at this time.
