I have been using Dr Blondin since 2009. I lived in Torrington then. Since I have moved several times including Danbury and now Newtown. I still come back to Dr Blondin regardless of the distance. That in itself says a lot!!!

Dr. Hakim-Zargar was very patient and kind. She took her time to answer all my questions. The staff is also very kind, knowledgeable, and helpful.

Told they only take cash or check after arrival and they would not see me. Took a day off of work to do this and it was wasted. Unprofessional and was not informed ahead of time.

Both times I have seen her she was in a hurry and each time had no obvious desire to spend any time addressing my concerns and overall I felt I was going to someone who did not care. The same can be applied to her administrative front office staff, each time, always incredibly rude.
