Our family's experience with Dr. Blaustein who has been our primary care doctor for well over a decade has been excellent. He found my husband's prostate cancer through a physical exam before the specialist did and he requires/encourages me to get a chest ray each year at my annual physical even thought I only smoked for 1 year forty years ago. He is very careful. He takes time to listen and is a genuinely nice person and very thorough physician.

NEVER EVER go to this doctor. He is COMPLETELY unprofessional, beyond RUDE, and unethical. He saw that there was something in my family member's lung, did not even request for a CT scan then, waited 5 months for the tumor to double in growth, then after there was a biopsy done and the results came back the same day, his staff lied TWICE that the results were in. The diagnosis is cancer and the dr lied to our family's face about when he got the results, and was EXTREMELY rude, unprofessional.
