Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I can't say enough great things about Dr. Blanton! She helped me more in one office visit than my 2 previous doctors had helped me in several years. She has a wonderful bedside manner and was determined to help me. I actually felt hopeful after 15 years of no answers! She was able to sort out my extremely complicated medical history and boil it down to a diagnosis that actually showed up in a test! Finally! After years of negative test results and chronic GI distress, she has found something treatable.

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.
