Testimonial

Dr. Blank diagnosed our son's condition after several other doctors couldn't.  He relieved our son of a great deal of discomfort.  He jokes to make children comfortable but there is never any doubt he is serious about his work.

Dr. Blank has been my son's doctor for 4 years. He started seeing Ryan at age 2 when he developed frequent throat/tonsil issues accompanied by snoring and mouth breathing. Dr. Blank was very informative as to the processes and procedures during different examinations for his hearing (backed up fluid which can cause hearing problems), adenoids and tonsils. Prior to our initial visit his pediatrician prepared me for what a visit to an ENT may consist of so I was able to better explain, prepare and console my son (and myself! Lol) because a scope up the nose is NO fun for any age! Dr. Blank has a great bedside manner and is professional, but also so down to earth. When I talk to him I feel like he's my colleague, in the sense that we are working together to get the best result for his patient and MY son. Throughout subsequent visits he kept me at ease which made me able to keep my little one calm and not sense any anxiousness. He is great with kids. I have recommended him to countless people...kids and adults alike and they all love him and his work. The office has a very clean and professional setting and the support staff is just as nice. Four years later we still see Dr. Blank periodically for check-ups since his T&A surgery. Ryan has no qualms about jumping into that examination chair when we're seeing Dr. Blank!
