Dr. Ellen R. Blye, MD

Internal Medicine | Female | 69 years old

My hope is that patients see me as a doctor who cares about them, who listens carefully to their concerns, shares my knowledge and expertise, and works with them. When there does not appear to be a solution to their problems, I want patients to know that I will not give up and will be open to alternative treatments, as long as the benefit appears to outweigh the risk. And when the situation is difficult or complicated, I am there to help them navigate their way.Read more

Dr Blye is an internist in a small office practice that is part of the Cornell-Weill group. Members of my family have been seeing her and her colleagues for many years. As a new patient I had a very good experience. My appointment was for a routine visit (not complete exam) yet she took the time to record my medical history. She answered all my questions about referrals to specialists. Recommended highly!

Dr. Blye has been my primary care physician for over 10 years. I trust her and am very happy with her as my doctor.

I saw her for an annual physical. I received an email with a link to the results of my blood test. It's awful to provide the patient test results and no explanation. I spent about an hour googling HDL and LDL levels because mine seemed outside the normal range. I was stressed out so I left a message for her. Let's just say I think it's her job to discuss results with me and clearly she didn't. She seemed bothered by my questions and referred me to an email. Not the kind of doc I want.
