What People Say About Dr. Joel Blumin, MD

Dr. Blumin is a life changing doctor. I was diagnosed with a vocal chord dysfunction 6 years ago and I have been struggling to breath for years. I was sent to a speech therapists to learn how to breath properly to break the breathing attacks. In the years to follow I was given anxiety and depression medication to control the anxiety of not breathing properly. I was told that it would never get any better. I was struggling with the daily concern of breathing anytime I exerted myself. My husband searched Froedert and found Dr. Blumin on a Monday morning. On Wednesday afternoon I had an appointment and within minutes he diagnosed me with idiopathic subglottic stinosis. I am scheduled to have surgery this week to restore my breathing. I felt I was in a hopeless situation that was not getting better. Thank God for Dr. Blumin and his dedication to the medical field. He was so nice and really explained what I had and how he could fix it for me. He's a breath of fresh air!

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!
