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.
