I have been Dr. Blumenfeld's patient for over three years. Excellent doctor and his treatment is a miracle. I have a brain injury as a result of a car accident and experienced a horrible headache 24/7 for four years until I was referred to Dr. Blumenfeld. Dr. Blumenfeld himself gets five stars. The reason my rating is only three stars is that it has become impossible to get an appointment with him the last nine months. I have been passed onto another doctor whose treatment does not compare in terms of helping my pain. Even though I was assured I would be on the list for when Dr. Blumenfeld opens his books and would receive a call, this has not been the case. I have not received any such call and when I call, I am told he did have a day in the office scheduled but that it was already fully booked and that I was out of luck. If it continues that I am unable to see Dr. Blumenfeld, I will look for another office/group for my treatments.

The office just clearly has no respect for their patients. I think the doctor has let any prestige he might have acquired over the years go to his head. He is a warped human being incapable of dealing with actual people. The other one star reviews are spot on. Unfortunately, look elsewhere if you care about the quality of your medical care and experience.

Dr Blumenfeld is an excellent doctor. I was having 15 to 20 migraines a month, now I am down 3 to 4 every three months. He is also very caring. I highly recommend him.

Most of my appointment was spent hearing about his stellar credentials rather than my etiology. For me, a failed appointment.

This doctor was a completely arrogant jerk to my wife and I. When we tried to describe her discomfort, we were told "that's a headache" and "this is a headache clinic and I'm a headache doctor". So unless you have a headache, steer clear of this guy. He was completely arrogant and uninterested in my wife's condition, instead choosing to instruct us in how discomfort means headache. A totally bizarre experience -- after waiting 40 minutes. Terrible. Shameful.

Dr. Blumenfeld and his staff made me feel very much at ease. The level of concern that I had about my condition was taken very seriously. The answers that were provided gave me hope that this condition can be treated and managed. I finally feel as though I have a plan to stop the pain and that there is a place to go if I find myself in a place of hopelessness.

I've had daily headaches my entire adult life. Dr.Blumenfeld treated me for 3.5 years before realizing I did not have migraines(which is all he seemed interested interesting treating). He was diamissive of my pain and annoyed with me that his treatment wasn't working! I was finally diagnosed after he performed a spinal tap in his office and had me leave within 20 minutes. I had to go to the ER to close the puncture. His refusal to listen has left me with nerve damage and vision loss.
