Patient Comments (1)
Williamsville, NY |
I really appreciated Dr. Blum's honesty and his seemingly true care for my daughters well being. I think most of us are so used to shiny Doctor's offices with flashy young doc. Although Dr. Blum is a bit older and doesn't seem to care about the these things, I do think he stays well informed with all of the newest procedures. He reminds me of one of my nerdy friends who doesn't talk much unless asked to and then blows you away with all the applicable information he has stored away.
