Dr. Blankenhorn has put me on the road to healing after my initial physician blew me off for a year. While it has been a slow recovery post surgery, he has me walking with minimal pain and slowly easing back into the gym and life. Any concerns I had about some current issues were put to rest with a solid plan to try and overcome such issues, as well as the assurance to keep pushing forward. He is both kind and caring, but most importantly he genuinely cares about a positive patient outcome. I am grateful to him and the entire University Orthopedic Staff. Thank you! 100%

I decided to go to University Orthopedics for a second opinion when I was dissatisfied with the care I received from South county Orthopedics. I wish I had gone to University first for the diagnosis of a fracture to my left tali’s. Care was amazing, staff always courteous and the facilities are top notch. Thank you for helping me heal properly. 100%
Dr. Blankenhorn explained the procedure I need in terms I understood, which was very similar to what my other surgeon told me. However, Dr. Blankenhorn was patient with my questions and fears and did not make me feel rushed or that I was a patient who was overreacting because I was inquiring about my corrective procedure. I feel I can trust this doctor with my procedure. 100%

On Jan 10th Dr. B was supposed to follow through with WC case worker, in regards to authorizing an MRI. I spoke to Mary B. last wk n she stated a request was yet to be entered by Dr. B

Great doctor with amazing people skills 100%

The man is top notch. One minute with him and you know he graduated at the top of his class. I trust him more than any other doctor I’ve come across and I’ve come across quite a few in my life.

My initial visit and day of surgery went exceptionally well. Dr. Blankenhorn explained my options very thoroughly on my initial visit, and kept my family updated the day of the surgery. I am very pleased with the care that I received. The staff was extremely professional and attentive. 100%

I am pleased with Doctor Blankenhorn who provided me with the different options available for me. So far, so good. I am doing quite wellpost‐op. 100%
Having a child get a full leg cast is no joke. I wish the Dr wouldve spent a little more time with us on what to expect, especially the first few days. Never assume they just know. My child has some special needs and was very overwhelmed once we got home as were we as parents. I just suggest that the Dr asks if the family has ever experienced things that this before and go into a brief description of what their day to day will be like. Cleaning, sleeping, school, car etc. 70%

Checking in at the front desk was a pretty slow process. It was 8 am the Monday after Thanksgiving so perhaps that is excusable. But I arrived 10 minutes early for my appointment and was still waiting to finish at reception at 5 after 8. Dr B's staff person ﴾a real asset to the office﴿ came looking for me. I do not like to be late for appointments. Check in time has been slower than usual lately at other appointments , except in the 2nd floor surgery center, where the whole staff there is wonderful. 100%
Dr Blankenhorn is very personable and knowledgeable. He does not rush through the appointment, and he does a great job explaining what he believes is the best treatment. 100%

He was very pleasant and I’m sure he’s a good doctor, but didn’t really help me much though, basically just confirmed what I’m already trying to do to “baby” my feet, no new recommendations or insight.

The doctor said I would be hearing from another doctor about setting up an appointment for shots in my foot. I still have not received a call. 80%
Very personable 100%

Please fix your call center you’re losing business. I would recommend that you test the system yourself by trying to call Lynn to arrange an appointment and see how poorly it’s run. That’s my only complaint everything else was perfect.

The appointment was very brief and he speaks very fast! But I feel confident in the information he did rely to me. 80%

Dr. Blankenhorn has always provided me with excellent attention & care. He has always sat down to talk with me & my husband ﴾not like some drs who stand over you﴿ and shown that he genuinely cared about me and my heath.


I broke my foot and ankle 4 months ago and I wish I would have come to this practice initially!! I received more information in one visit than I did going to the other practice in the other 4 months. Thank you very much.

The wait was very long to see the doctor but definitely better than any other orthopedic I've seen in years. A very easy and quick visit. 90%
Caring, kind doctor! I appreciate all his care and surigical skills 100%
This practice has been taking care of me since Dr. Trafton was in charge of it. Dr. Blankenhorn is continuing the tradition of providing excellent health care to his patients. 100%

Very good doctor


I am answering this for my wife, who has Alzheimer's Disease. Carol was treated kindly and with respect, and very efficiently. We were seen quickly, the resident/fellow was in promptly to see us, and Dr. Blankenhorn came in promptly after that. It was a highly satisfactory visit.


Brad was absolutely fine but the staff was absolutely terrible when it comes to filling out paperwork for TDI and Cigna . The staff needs serious work with all the communication as far as handing off paperwork and making sure it gets filled out I will not recommend that office simply because of some of the supporting staff. A matter of fact I think this survey is a joke because I've done this before and I've asked to be contacted regarding this survey and no one ever did.


Wonderful bedside manner


As a pt.of dr.digiovanni who I recommended highly...I love dr.blankenhorn as much..hes xo personable and real and sympathetic...truly a top notch best ankle ortho in the state!!! And I've suffered with now 7 ankle operations.Hes The Best!


I very much appreciated the opportunity to meet with Dr, Blankenhorn.

Very nice. Took the time to answer any questions. 100%

Competent and courteous


My whole experience has been excellent thus far including the day of surgery with him. The administration, the MA’s also have bern more then helpful in all areas of my experience having my Achilles surgery just shy of three weeks now. Thank you to all of Dr Blankenhorn’s staff and Dr Blankenhorn himself.


Knowledgeable, attentive and very pleasant.


He’s a smart, kind doctor.


ALWAYS makes me feel at ease...dealing with issues and discussing surgeries is hard on patients...Dr. Blankenhorn makes the process so less frightening.


Very thorough and informative


I have seen many doctors in the past and have had great doctors, as well as, horrible doctors...Dr. Blankenhorn is an excellent doctor in every way.


The doctor took his time, at no point rushed, and we had a down to earth discussion about a serious issue of mine. I couldn't have been more pleased.
