Professional Statement
Julia Blank MD says that becoming a physician was a matter of serendipity meeting destiny. Her grandmother was an OB/GYN with a home office and as a child, Dr. Blank would spend her summers there. She loved to hang out in the waiting room, chatting with her grandmother’s patients. Conversations with her parents would inevitably include at least one mention of: 'When you're a doctor...' She feels lucky that the family trade--practicing medicine--is something she enjoys doing. Dr. Blank moved to Los Angeles from the East coast in 2003. One of the aspects she likes most about practicing medicine is taking care of her patients over the long term. She enjoys getting to know patients and their families, understanding how their lives impact their health--and vice versa..

When not seeing patients or staying up on the latest medical research, Dr. Blank enjoys spending time with her children, hiking, reading, and traveling. She also enjoys playing the piano.
