This center is aesthetically nice. People getting cosmetic work or who want beauty care aids probably will enjoy it. The receptionist is also nice and friendly. That said...
If you have a complex medical history and need help with a medical related issue, I don't recommend this center or specifically Dr. Blanchet.
He did not appear to truly listen to anything I said about my symptoms. He refused to explore causality of symptoms beyond a cursory look at my health history and my skin.
I advised him that I was keeping a multiple-site skin issue in check, but could not get rid of the problem. I tried to advise him of the way in which the symptoms appeared, but he would either mishear me and have me repeat what I said or simply ignore what I was saying. I further advised him that I had a history of problems that suggested further investigation was needed. He looked at my skin without doing any testing that would say one way or another if the issue was greater than what he surmised. I requested additional testing to prove his theory. He refused and tried to say that the type of testing I was requesting either didn't exist or resulted in a lot of false positives. I knew from my own research this wasn't true. At that point, I just gave up because I realized that this doctor did not truly care about helping a patient's health to improve.
He commented on my obvious frustration with the appointment and then became more interested in filling out the bill as quickly as possible and getting me out of the evaluation room then offering any real help.
I've had some extremely horrible doctor experiences in my time. This ranks as one of the worse.
