I spent 5 months in the hospital, 4 of which were in a coma. I saw Dr Bloom for a relative severe case of an allergic reaction to adhesive from medical products. The skin on my stomach was breaking down, highly inflamed, severely itchy with hives. I had already been to an MD and Urgent Care the following day. No measurable relief but lots of drugs, topical and internal. Dr Bloom quickly diagnosed the problem and had a novel solution. He prescribed a product used for a different medical issue and the recovery was nothing short of astounding with one tiny bottle of a topical medication. The severely inflamed skin returned to normal in about 3 days, not slowly after weeks! He stays abreast of issues by belonging to a group of dermatologists, so you are really getting more than a single doctor’s experience with Dr Bloom. I will be recommending him to a friend with psoriasis. Really happy to give him well deserved 5 stars!

I have been seeing Dr. Bloom for at least 20 years. He is a fantastic diagnostician, he is always willing to to listen to all my concerns and has had an answer and solution for all of my problems. He also has carefully researched sources of inexpensive products that will help your condition without a costly prescription. He always greets me like I am "a long lost friend". I am long overdue for a visit.
