Dr. Bleier is a very caring and knowledgeable physician. I went to see Dr. Bleier after suffering many years of sinus issues. Dr. Bleier recommended a procedure to correct the sinus issues I was experiencing. My quality of life has improved since having sinus surgery with Dr. Bleier. I highly recommend Dr. Bleier if you have any sinus issues.

My experience with Dr Bleier was very bad. Our initial encounter took about five minutes. He performed a one-side nasal endoscopy in three to five seconds, no findings. He then ordered a CT "to make sure there's nothing wrong with your sinuses." The next and final visit, again about three minutes total, reviewed the CT: no sinus findings, but an abscessed molar. There were no follow-up instructions (except to see a dentist) and no referrals. I only realized he was finished after email exchanges with his PA. So...it appears he was going through the minimal motions and entering the codes - the five-second endoscopy was billed at $625. I can only imagine that he had decided before he saw me that there was no sinus issue -- "examined me" is not really a good description. He may or may not have been correct in that assumption, but the total absence of work-up and the failure to communicate even the most basic information -- like, "We're done!" -- adds nothing to his credibility.
