Saddle River, NJ |
I had a horrible experience with Dr. Blitz. I find her to be uncompassoniate and very cold. I left my last appointment in tears after being insulted, laughed at and told I'm not smart. I will never go back there reguardless of credentials.

My experience has not been good. Dr Blitz is also located in NJ location she does not listen, nor does she explain very well. She seems to get irrabtle when questions are asked. I'm not sure how she is with other patients but my experience was not good.
