What People Say About Dr. Howard Blumstein, MD
Reply
I suffer from a number of chronic health conditions (breast cancer, spinal disease, autoimmune, etc), so I've seen more than my fair share of specialists. Dr. Blumstein is, hands down, one of the best doctors I've ever seen. He's incredibly thorough, actually listens to his patients' concerns and takes all the time necessary to explain things instead of rushing on to the next patient, is compassionate & caring, I could go on and on. I have no doubts that I am in the best hands possible.
