Having had a professional association as a nurse with Dr. Blinkoff for many years I would rate him and his entire group the highest in the city for their GI skills. I have worked in areas such as ER and ICU for 30 years now and consider myself a good judge of medical skills. Dr. Blinoff's kindness, concern, and professional skills are of first rate quality, and I have recommended him to all that have asked for a referral. Does his personality suit all? I often do not like many personalities from check out people at the grocery and so on, but does that make them unskilled? It disturbs me that anyone could rate a doctor or any professional online and attempt to include what should only be rightfully judged by peers. Anyone who is concerned with a physicians safety record should research in appropriate places (ie a medical board).
