Dr Blankenship is an excellent choice in eye care. I have been a T1D for over 53 years and feel that he takes excellent care of my eyes, and refers me on to others if need be. Thanks Dr Blankenship!

Dr. Blankenship was very kind and personable. He made me feel my questions were valid and took his time to answer them to my satisfaction. I recently moved and had to change doctors after 15 years. A friend recommended Dr. Blankenship and I am so glad she did. It was a great experience and I look forward to being his patient for many years.

I had an eye emergency and was unable to be seen by my regular optometrist---Dr Blankenship and his office were able to see me that day! I had somehow gotten a small piece of plastic in my eye. They were able to remove it and get me the right antibiotic drops---my vision is as good as new! It was a scary experience but Dr B and the office staff were amazing!

My daughter was having very bad headaches, and it was recommended that her vision be checked as a possible cause. Dr. Blankenship was able to work us in quickly, and the staff was awesome. Dr. Blankenship spent a great deal of time with us, providing an extremely thorough examination as well as explanation of everything that they were doing and the reasons behind it. He is so kind and caring, which put my nervous daughter at ease. I have referred many others to him!

I have sent my 80 year old grandmother to Dr. B several times the last few years. He is extremely patient and kind with her taking the time needed to make sure she feels heard, as well as making sure she understands her condition and her treatment options. Dr. B, thanks taking care of us!

The staff is nice and I don't wait long. I used to see Dr. Senica but she retired. I do not care for Dr. Blankenship at all. Terrible bedside manner. He refused to write me a new prescription without dilating my eyes which is something they did not tell me when I made my appointment, and something I did not have time for today. I also felt that Dr. Blankenship yelled at me to MAKE UP YOUR MIND and I did not appreciate that AT ALL. I am switching doctors after that experience.
