She traveled to San Diego for her internship and residency, where she met and married her husband, Jim. They have two young daughters, Adelyn & Taryn, and a small dog, Daisy.

She obtained her medical degree from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. She completed her internship and residency at the Naval Medical Center San Diego in San Diego, California, then practiced as an OBGYN in the Navy for four years.

“I would recommend Dr. Blattner in a heartbeat. Genuine and caring, answered my questions, addressed my concerns. Appointment was for an annual exam, very thorough. I didn't feel like a number, she was kind, happy and compassionate. The front desk staff was friendly and although the usual paperwork and check-in formalities occurred they did it professionally and with a smile. Only thing I would do differently is bring a warm blanket, the exam room was way chilly. Thank you ladies! Kudos!”Patient from Longmont, Colo.
“Very caring and called me on a Sunday when she saw the results on my tests needed immediate attention. She could have waited until Monday because my life was not threatened but she did not wait and I appreciate how caring she was. Also, in the past, the nurses make the phone calls. It was so nice that Dr. Blattner called and could answer my questions immediately and not wait to have her call back. Very pleasant for routine exams as well.”Patient from Boulder, Colo.
