Reviews

Dr Blumenstein saw my husband without a referral last year (within a week of his call), was extremely professional and thorough and uncritical ... and immediately scheduled him for testing, which revealed cancer, which Dr Blumenstein discussed with him fully before having the oncology team set up. A year later he is cancer free ... we are thankful that Dr Blumenstein was available, honest and thorough.

I have been a patient of Dr. Blumenstein for over 20 years and he has always been very compassionate and listened to my concerns. He and his staff always get back to me promptly. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I am at a loss with this other reviewer. I am the opposite. I do not want the doctor to say things just to make me feel better. I just want the truth, and that is what Dr Blum will give you. His full office, and full schedule shows he is a good doctor. An appointment with him is definitely worth the wait. I am fully confident in his capability based off of my own experience when I had a colonoscopy/endoscopy he did in 2012, and the Endoscopy I just had in July. He was not at all condescending or rude. He was genuinely interested in solving the problem. I would not base my decision to see a doctor off of an emotional review. It was a great experience for me.
