1st routine colonoscopy was completed by Dr. Blanton. Needed year followup. She spent so much time with me discussing every aspect of what was going on. Extremely kind, patient and never rushed me as I asked question after question. Very thorough. Was impressed with a call from her directly with pathology and not N.P.

Dr.Blanton is the best. She takes time to talk with her patients about their concerns, treatments and future options, which is extremely important when you're feeling lousy. Great bedside manner, more doctors should be like her. Great office staff. Everyone in that office is top notch.
