Professional, friendly and most of all fixed my problems. Recommend very highly
Dr. Blanchet is one of the best podiatrists I have been to. Very caring and doesn’t rush you. The girl who works with her is also wonderful to deal with. (I feel bad I can’t remember her name). I would recommend this Dr to anyone that needs her services.
Highly recommended! Dr. Blanchet is very personable and shows true concern for my issues. Her office staff member (don't recall her name) is very nice. Never had any problem getting an appointment and never had to wait once I arrived. 👍
Love being greeted in such a friendly manner. Sets your mind at ease from the beginning. Very clean. The Doctor also sets you at ease and is very compassionate. She explains things step by step. She emailed me back promptly. Can't say enough good things.
We went to Dr. Blanchet after another podiatrist had surgically removed a plantar wart from my son's foot. After surgical removal, which was painful, the wart returned along with others. Dr. Blanchet recommended a microwave treatment that was amazing. No pain from the treatment, almost instant pain relief from the warts, and all were cleared up in fewer than 3 treatments. I would highly recommend the treatment to anyone suffering from plantar warts - so much better than any other treatment option out there. I am so happy that we tried Dr. Blanchet's office. She has wonderful staff, a convenient location, and was friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her.
