Arlene Blanco

Client Patient Coordinator
Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists
Houston, TX

Arlene is a machine! She has exceptional client communication and interactions. She goes above and beyond, recalling client/patient details. Sending cards for patient birthdays or get-well cards for clients. Arlene is informative, compassionate, thorough, and efficient with endless energy and enthusiasm. Her excellent client, departmental and interdepartmental organization and communication are invaluable to radiation oncology and GCVS. Her positive energy (and sense of humor) never waivers. Arlene is always up for a challenge. I have never heard her say "no" or "it's not possible." Even after a long trying day she remains happy, energetic and pushing the Zamboni (floor cleaner).

Arlene temporarily left GCVS. It wasn't until her departure that we realized the immense workload one dynamo achieved. We are grateful that she has returned to GVCS.

Her efforts and experience permit me to focus on my radiation therapy planning. She organizes the entire team, my day and reduces my stress level immensely.

To say that Arlene is an invaluable member of the Radiation Oncology Team and GCVS is still an understatement. I am grateful for her dedication, enthusiasm and compassion for our patients, clients and our team.

Nominated by her co-worker, Dr. Lisa DiBernardi


They always do the right thing, with unquestionable integrity.
