Ratings for Dr. Brian W. Blanchette
We do not rate any Dr. on personality alone. His responsiveness, diagnosis's, Dr. communication of test results are the most important in prevention of a deadly illness. He and the 2 other opinions/Specialists were not on the mark with our family members symptoms and test results. We know the buck got passed between all 3 opinions. We were told by the Specialists and other Dr.'s it was something that was not deadly,could be lived with,and many people do live with it till they die of old age. Unfortunately, the Specialist and other Dr.'s neglected to tell us about another documented area in the tests, even though we asked countless times each time we kept all appointments if there was anything else; and the patient, our loved one, died at a young age. The patient could have lived a much longer life / many years more if it was caught at that immensely early stage. There are people still living for 30 plus years after diagnosis because it was caught early on and communicated to the patient and patients family member.
He set up tests for everything but the chronic symptom, and then nothing, until it was too late. Then finally after the proper test was performed in the ER, after 2 more opinions, that showed the reason for symptoms, it was too late. Too many years went by and the HIPPA conveniently disappeared 4 times. And even then, the ER Dr's had to convince Dr. Blanchett. After I completely did research on the patients diagnosis along with other Dr.'s, the patient died when he could be alive today. So, no, I do not recommend this Dr. to anyone or to my worst enemy.
I have been going to Dr Blanchette since he joined Bridgewater Medical. I now have him as PCP for my whole family. He is a wonderful physician and very accessible. I may have to wait sometimes but it is well worth it. I know he takes his time with me and obviously he does not rush any of his patients. I'm fortunate to have him...we all are!
