Implement less invasive and natural therapies whenever appropriate

Dr. Blankenship is helping me through some tricky health issues. She is knowledgeable and thorough. I’m so thankful to have a doctor to whom I can message my questions and receive thoughtful responses. I feel like my provider is on my team rather than feeling like I have to advocate for myself. Because I can let go of the need to educate myself AND my doctor, I can focus on healing. I wish everyone had the opportunity to have this level of care!

My experience with Dr. Mary Brittain Blankenship has been incredibly encouraging. With Spruce MD’s integrative approach you get a physician who is a problem solver, not just someone who is churning patients. Instead, Dr. Blankenship is an advocate, a friend, a listening ear and an honest voice who is on your side. Spruce MD is a completely different experience and gives you great confidence in your health care. It is well worth the investment.

Really pleased to see Dr. Blankenship’s comprehensive approach to wellness. I’m a big believer in proactive and preventative care and she lives what she shares with her patients. So grateful to have her provide this approach in Greenville.
