Bethesda, MD |
Having a rare condition (idiopathic subglottic stenosis) I went to several other ENTs before I found Dr. Blumin. Dr. Blumin is not only at the top in his field, continually conducting research and consulting with ENTs worldwide, but he has a fantastic bedside manner. He's always straightforward, never makes you feel rushed, and very practical in his approach. I have recommended him to friends and family without any reservations!
