Lynbrook, NY |
Dr. seems competent, but getting result of in-home sleep study seems impossible. No one EVER called to tell me anything about results and when I called the office I was told I will get a call from the "vendor." Do they mean the ice cream vendor, the vending machine? I guess they mean I have sleep apnea and the medical device supplier was going to let me know. NOT ACCEPTABLE.

Dr Blum was very quick with my hospital visits and wasn't helpful in explaining anything to me. He has terrible bedside manner.

I have seen Dr. Blum several times over the past 10 years -- for altitude expedition preparation, chronic bronchitis, and sleep apnea. His office is professional. He cares for his patients and listens carefully. He is a top rate physician.

Dr Blum needs to come down a few notches, Guess that is why he's has appts available told him my concerns did an x ray, and handed me a script for a cat scan, which he should have himself told his girls to schedule ASAP, neglected to put STAT , I had to request that, considering his assumed dig. , which was so far fetched and scary. Well Scan showed what I suspected, but his attitude is minus zero. To the trainees that follow him, reevaluate, as per other reviews, he is so full of himself,

Started with flu went into brinchitis been coughing my head off violently for over a month. He puts me on 2 machines and says I have non-productive cough asthma. HA !! Then says to his trainees thank God I got that machine a year and a half ago or otherwise I'd be stumped. Oldest one in the group, ready for retirement, and he would have been stumped ? Phlegm galore, still choking. Take the inhaler and nose spray, I'm going elsewhere.
