Honolulu, HI |
I was referred to him by my doctor, I have severe pain in my elbow and shoulder for about 5 months and everything my doctor tried to help it was unsuccessful. It took me about 2 weeks o get to see him and he said he looked at my exays and several things could be causing the pain. He said surgery was also possible. He said they would first try a cortisone shot. The nurse came in gave me the shot and said it would take about 2 or 3 days for it to work if that was the problem. 5 days later the pain

Wait time is extremely long. Dr Blum does not spend any time talking to you and just says, "You need surgery:. Did not even explain to me what type of surgery he was going to perform. I would look for a different Orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Blum was friendly and accommodating. He took the time to thoroughly explain the injury to my daughter and pointed out the healthy bones in her x-ray as well.

He did hand surgery on me an I had problems a few months after. I called for an appointment because I was going out of town. They said he was booked up! He did surgery on me and I am having probably blems...and he couldn't see me? I asked if he could call me and was told that he did not make phone calls???!!! Very disappointed.

In 2013 I was unable to lift my arm up to a horizontal posistion without pain, and needed help with my right hand to raise it higher. On 12/6/2013 Dr. Blum performed a Latissimus Dorsi Transfer and Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty Surgery. It's been 3 years since the surgery and now I have about 98% movement of the shoulder, pain free and 100% of my strength back. After surgery therapy was done at home. This was the third surgery on my left shoulder, the first 2 done by other physicians.
I felt like i was waisting his time. I had a few questions and concerns and i think he got irritated. Asked if he needed to see me again since i was still in pain and he said no. Told me to get a hand ball to exercise and that was it. Office is really nice and clean and staff was friendly and helpful. I wish i could have gave this a better rating. Would not recommend this doctor. Horrible bed side manner.

I went to him for the first time with my shoulder in extreme pain. He quickly examined me and said that my shoulder was frozen and he couldn't do an MRI until my shoulder became unfrozen. He didn't explain what a frozen shoulder was or what caused it. He only gave me a a sheet of paper with arm exercises without saying how often to do them or how many repetitions. That was it!! He didn't even say come back in a month and lets see how your range of motion is doing. Nothing! Just uncaring.
