in Covington, LA |
Dr. Bluhm came highly recommended and I can see why. A highly skilled surgeon with a great, positive bedside manner. I felt totally at ease with him, my surgeries all went well and follow up care was excellent. I now live out of state, but would go back to Texas for general surgery with Dr. Bluhm.
