I have been seeing Dr. Blom for almost three years and I feel honored that he and his wonderful staff have been treating me. He is knowledgeable in the oncology field and is very down-to-earth and friendly and that always made and continues to make me feel at ease.

Dr Tria is the absolute best! He replaced my right knee in 1996 ( not a typo) and my left one in 2008. He gave me my life back- able to walk and play golf without pain. A most compassionate and caring individual. I have recommended Dr. Tria to everyone.

Dr. Qureshi operated on my 81 year old mother for a brain bleed from a traumatic head injury caused by a fall. She came through with flying colors and his subsequent follow up care has been outstanding. We couldn’t be more pleased with Dr. Qureshi’s care!

I saw Dr. Butler years ago, complaining of knee pain. He seemed very rushed and uninterested and didn't take time to explain anything. Needless to say, I did not go back. I found a wonderful orthopedic surgeon closer to home and had a successful knee replacement.

Review for Dr. Schmierer

Billed me $800 for the five minutes it took him to take a focused history, listen to my lungs, palpate my abdomen and put a pulse oximeter on my finger. This does not include the nearly $5000 bill from the ER for flu testing (done by the nurse, not Dr. Stoev). This is outrageous.
