San Diego, CA |
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.
