Great doctor! he helped me so much. I could hardly walk and now im exercising daily. took time to explain my problem with me and my family. I highly recommend Dr B!

He doesn't listen. His mind is made up about what's wrong with you before he lays eyes on you. Didn't want to spend the time to send me to X-ray for full diagnosis. It's okay though I have good insurance so I have options with seeing specialists.
He is a very wise Dr. Explained everything to me and my daughter. Refered us immediately to another Dr. Who could manage her pain. He was God Sent. His staff was plesant and helpful. So glad I choose him for a second opinion. He is straight to the point and tells you how it is. Treatment was booked quickly and so were the follow up appointments.

I was actually there with an older relative who had hurt her back. The wait was terrible in both the waiting room and in the exam room. 2.5 hours total. As we went back to the exam room, I overheard Blankenship make a snide remark about finally a patient who was on time. And it wasn't us. The big problem is the amount of paperwork required to fill out upon arrival. The Dr did not listen and only asked questions. He was in a big hurry to finish. I would like to say much more but not given space.
