Very careful and caring Dr. I went to four other ENT's who couldn't pinpoint the problem. I had almost given up when my Primary Care doc recommended Dr. Bloom. He found the problem right away and after surgery I am now healing nicely.

Dr. Bloom tooo care of our four year olds first surgery. He was very compassionate with our four year old and us. He took time to talk to us and to explain to our daughter about getting her surgery. And when she woke up and was confused he talked us through helping her calm down. Thank you dr. Bloom.

My fiver year old daughter was having issues with her tonsils and needed them out. Dr. Bloom went over the options and made sure surgery was the route that was best for her. We felt comfortable and informed. The procedure was very quick and I was impressed with the whole experience. My daughter recovered well and stated at the post op appointment that she really liked her throat Doctor. Would high recommend Dr Bloom.

Treated us as less than. Cut me off several times when asking valid and important questions. Arrogant, condescending, impatient, rude, abrupt. Willing only to treat symptoms, not interested in root cause analysis. Disregards genetics and family history. Willing to schedule a surgery for a 3 year old boy to operate before determining prognosis.

Dr Bloom is extremely knowledgable which, combined with his caring & outgoing personality, gives his patients reason to immediately trust his diagnosis & have complete confidence in his treatment. I was referred to Dr Bloom for a debilitating case of positional vertigo. He recommended, explained & expertly performed Epley maneuvers @ my 1st appt & resolved the effects of vertigo that had kept me from taking part in most activities for nearly a month.

I am fortunate to have known Dr. Bloom for years. With my most recent visit, Dr. Bloom went out of his way to listen. He's always very gentle and I can tell he really cares. That means everything to me. He addressed my issue with great professionalism and I left feeling very confident that I was in the best hands possible.

Dr. Bloom has seen our daughter for her allergies, and hearing issues. She is very inquisitive. He was patient and described all techniques, equipment and problems she has to her level. She left a greater understanding of how to take care of herself because of this visit. He has zeal for person not the illness. Thank you!

I had a nose that has been broken several times, with a deviated septum. I love that as He walked in the room he was washing his hands with hand sanitizer. He is a very straight forward, honest with what is going on, what needs to be done and with options I love that approach.. He explained things so clearly that my special needs twins both understood him. As a matter of fact I now take all of my family members to him. There are not enough characters to say all the good things about him.

Our newborn had a tongue tie and was unable to latch on and breastfeed, causing severe pain for me and a lot of stress with feedings. Dr. Bloom was able to see our daughter within two days and get her tongue tie fixed. He was friendly and engaging and explained the procedure very well! The whole procedure was extremely quick and effective. I was able to breastfeed immediately afterwards and experienced no pain! It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend Dr. Bloom!

Dr. Bloom was not prepared for my visit and unable to address my chief complaint and reason for visit. He stated that he wasn't prepared and I would have to come back for a second visit regarding my issue. His exam technique was rough and caused pain and soreness for days. He then billed me incorrectly. I appealed this bait and switch and abuse to my insurance company.
