Dr. Blanche's assistant, Tracey, has always been extraordinarily helpful. She is great at initial workup and follow through with calls. However, she showed great care and compassion to get me through testing and a visit to the ER when I had contracted Covid-19. Her insistence to me and to providers allowed me to receive quick and early care which meant the course of the disease was mildly moderate, treatable at home. Dr. Blanche and I, from my perspective, have a special relationship. I have great confidence in his care for me. He understands me and my long term health goals. Our alloted time together is always too short, but entirely adequate for the purpose of the visit.
January 28, 2022
I haven't been to the Talent office in over a year and a half, however this visit was great. Everyone in the location was friendly and helpful.

Dr. Blanche and the office staff
November 27, 2021
I find Dr. Blanche to be the most informed, communicative, compassionate and responsible doc I have had the pleasure of seeing in my [AGE] years of life! I grew up with a Father who set the bar high for these qualities in his own Medical practice. It is a joy to have this level of confidence and rapport with Dr. Blanche! Thank you for asking. And thank you for having Dr. Blanche available to our community! Sincerely, [NAME]
November 27, 2021
I understand the acute shortage of health care providers and the difficulties of coping with constantly changing staff. I think Dr. Blanche is coping well with the frustrations of these changes and understands the importance of continuity of care. We are all coping together and hoping to get through the pandemic challenges to a steadier, healthier future. Thank you for hanging in there!

November 10, 2021
Yes, I needed a longer appt. than the one I had (flu shot), and a receptionist ran out to get me in the parking lot as I was leaving to let me know of a cancellation that had just come in so I could fill in and subsequently get my hand X-rayed!! My lucky day aided by the receptionist!
November 07, 2021
Yes I think you are lucky to have a health care provider like Dr. Blanch working with your organization!! He's always helpful as well as considerate and patient! At least with me and that as my mom would say is no walk in the park! Lol thank you and [ ]

I have a special affinity for Tracey. She has an informed, level of care that gives me a feeling of security. She is attentive in preparing me for my actual visit with Dr. Blanche.
October 28, 2021
MA Tracy deserves a pay raise. I've been impressed with the phone follow up calls and time spent. Dr. Blanche needs to continue working for at least 10 more years.
October 21, 2021
Dr. Blanche has given me excellent advice and taken my unique medical history very seriously the entire time I have had him as my Primary Care doctor. I see him once a year for an annual physical, and he always takes the time to go over my charts and history and check me out and give me good advice. He is very patient and an excellent listener. His assistant, Tracy, has also been very thorough, knowledgeable, and clearly an expert in her work. Thank you Asante!

I am pleased with all the Asante folks with whom I have contact. However, I especially like Tracy and Dr. Blanche.
