.

The staff was and has always been very helpful. I get in almost immediate and the nurse helps me as quick as she can. Sometimes I have the blunt with Dr. Blank as for I've learned if you are not over concerned with yourself, neither is he or any doctor.
Sometimes Dr. Blank seems to refer me to other doctor or procedures just to be sure. Even though I may not like everything Dr. Blank tells me or makes me do, I realize its in my best interest. Although I go to him probably too much in all the years I've been going. Since he lost weight and got remarried he has been very distracted but as others say, "take charge" or no one will.

Last fall I severely broke out all over my arms, thighs, chest and abdominal area, back and neck. It itched uncontrollably and finally I had enough and decided to see a doctor about this. My mother suspected that I had scabies and shared this opinion with Dr. Blank. He had no real opinion of his own. He neither agreed nor disagreed with whether I had the condition or not, yet he had no problem prescribing me to permethrin and didn't even bother to explain how it was to be administered. I later went to a dermatologist and she said that it was absurd that he would treat me without running tests. He's very rude, condescending and I do not care for him at all. I will not being visiting his practice anymore and suggest that you don't either.

OMG!!!! I'm soooo glad I read these comments! I have never seen a doctor or staff (except for one very nice lady) so rude or stupid. I think Dr. Blank has a Dennis Rader mentality. The guy gave me the creeps. He got mad when I brought my husband with me on my 2nd and LAST appt. At least he kept his hands & most of his rude comments to himself.I wote down all my concerns because he would not allow me to talk on my fist visit. And No.... he didn't even read what I wrote. He was very distracted on both visits & couldn't even remember why I was there. geez...What a waste!!

My experiences with Dr Blank seem to copy other comments but i have to agree with the one person that stated they prefer the doctor to be honest - even if that honesty is not something you want to hear. If he tells you you are overweight, you probably are. If he tells you you need medicine for a long term period, you probably do. These may not be things you want to hear, and you can always find a doctor who will tell you what you want to hear and not what you need to hear. He is usually short, appears distracted, but you must take the initiative to ask him the questions and voice your concerns. He will stay and talk to you as long as you take charge of the appt. Else he can only assume you have nothing to say and will leave for the next appointment. His staff has ALWAYS been very courteous and helpful when i have been there. They will even assist with concerns if you feel the doctor didnt stay long enough. Remember, it is up to you to take charge of your appt. Doctors and nurses arent mind readers.

I have been seeing Dr. Blank for approximately 6 years. For the last nine months I have had quarterly appointments with Dr. Blank. Dr. Blank has always provided me with the best of care. His office staff is friendly and very helpful. I have never had a bad office visit with Dr. Blank. He is very professional in nature. Some may consider him rude or aloof as he is direct and to the point, which is what I prefer when seeking medical services. I would recommend Dr. Blank to anyone who is looking for dedicated family practice doctor.

The office staff was so nice when I had my newborn baby in there with me but when it came down to actually being seen, everyone in the waiting room that came in after me was seen first (EVEN WHEN I HAD A SET APPOINTMENT). When I was in the office with Dr. Blank he seemed very distant and did not respond to me in a manner that a doctor should with a patient. He seemed like he had somewhere else to be or someone else to see that was more important than me.

I really caant stand going to dr. blank, i barely see him when he comes into the room he's there for about 10 mins gives you the perscriptions and then your done. The only i ever see working is the Nurse or MA whatever she is and i really dont mind her that much. I highly recommend that no one ever go to him, he's such a jerk and not a very great doctor.

What a jerk! My husband was told that stress had nothing to do with his high blood pressure! He told him to take the high blood pressure medicine and that he would be on it the rest of his life. And when my daughters, who were about 6 and 9 at the time, had worms he told them to not eat for 3 days! Called my former doctor back in PA and he sent the medicine that they needed. He used to have to CNPs that were great but obviously they are gone now!

I have been seeing Dr. Blank now for a couple of years, and I have to say that going to this guy was a BIG mistake. There is one woman/nurse in his office who is extremely rude, condescending, draws quick assumptions, etc. Her tone, when interacting with patients over the phone, is just shocking. It's almost like she's borderline psycho - seriously. On a positive note, Penny is the one nurse in the office who is knowledgeable and treats me with respect each time I call with a question. If you must deal with these people, always demand to speak with Penny, or don't bother calling. As far as Dr. Blank is concerned, I have had mixed experiences. There are times when he seems genuinely concerned, and there are other times when he cannot get out of the examination room fast enough. On some visits, he is warm and friendly, and then distant and cold on other visits. He can be quite condescending at times, and he often does not seem as though he is there in the room with you during the examination. Yes, he is there physically, but it's like his mind is somewhere else. The biggest issue I have with Dr. Blank is that he NEVER REMEMBERS anything about me or my health concerns. Every visit is like the first visit, and you have to explain things over and over again to him. He says one thing on a previous visit, then will say something completely different on subsequent visits. It seems as though he never reviews records prior to the exam, and does not appear to keep very good records of what was discussed. My plan is to change doctors in the near future. My advice - beware if you choose to enter into Dr. Blank's bizarre little world.

There is a staff member, with blonde helmet looking hair and glasses, that is infected with STDs and who would want THAT assisting my physician. Dr. Blank is good though, just thought he wouldn't hire such a gross assistant. She was bragging about it, as IF!!

He referred me to his Heart Doctor pal next door and I told both Dr. Blank and the other guy we will hold nameless (right next door to him) that my lung was hurting me. They took an x-ray and told me to exercise. Ha- I went to the emergency room and found out my lung was deficient, I was suffering hypoxia and my heart was not functioning properly. I now need surgery.

I recently went to Dr. Blank with severe deep chest cold symptoms. I had to ask the ditz to change the paper thing on the bed and she complained but then did it. Wouldn't take my blood pressure because I had developed hives. After literally less than a minute he gave me a z-pac and sent me home. I told him there were more things I needed to discuss with him but he said he didn't have time. That night I was sicker than I had ever been in my life so I went to the emergency room. I was found to have a serious case of pneumonia. The hospital said they get a lot of complaints about this guy. I was warned about this fruit misdiagnosing people in the past but didn't listen. I hope you do.

Dr. Blank speaks in a very condescending way. It is hard enough to get a man to go to the doctor, and once my husband went in he decided he will not be going to a doctor again anytime soon because he was treated so poorly. I will NOT recommend this doctor to anyone, his behavior is ridiculous and not professional in the least.

I went to Dr. Blank and was having heart trouble. Pains in my chest that went to my fingers. I spent the night at Florida Hosptial who wanted me to follow up with my doctor. Dr. Blank said to me " Have you ever heard of Weight Watchers? They are down the street on the corner by K-Mart. Thats where you should go I cant help you" I left the office is tears. He never followed up on my chest pains. I had a mild heart attack and was treated correctly by another Doctor. But beware, Dr. Blank thinks that all of your problems are because you are over weight..A real JERK!!!!

Dr. Blank is friendly, approachable, and willing to listen, although his staff do the majority of work in most cases. Both Dr. Blank are his staff were helpful and attentive when I visited, and they addressed all questions and concerns competently and thoroughly. The office is easy to locate, clean, and definitely kid-friendly.

PROS: great care, kid-friendly, nice people
