I had terrible shoulder pain during Covid and was referred to him. He kept telling me it was my neck. I got 2 steroid shots in my neck with very little relief. He looked at my neck more than my shoulder and I kept having this terrible pain. Talked very little. Turns out I have 2 large tears in my rotator cuff. What I really needed is shoulder replacement. Thanks to the very kind neck surgeon at Southlake orthopedics I am now scheduled for surgery but thanks to Dr Blum I have had to tolerate a lot of pain trying to find out what is wrong. I’m sure the delay has done more damage. Please don’t go there

Dr. Blum is one of the most caring physicians that I’ve ever come into contact with! He and his team go above and beyond to even take the time to listen to your medical history to find any underlying problems that could have led to an orthopedic problem. I had an MRI within a day and had a plan for my shoulder surgery the very next after explaining every detail with me and my family. The entire staff is so amazing and caring and I couldn’t have dreamed of a better experience!

Can I not give him half of a star? He doesn’t deserve a star at all. I have a shoulder injury. That man blazed in the room, manhandled me, hurt me far worse than I was hurting and he was one of the rudest men I’ve ever met. He told me he would try to schedule and MRI for me soon. Turns out I have Acromioclavicular Separation and need surgery as soon as possible. What a jerk. I had to go to the E.R. To get actual help, 5 days later they STILL haven’t called to schedule the MRI.

He was dismissive about my problem and seemed intent on surgery no matter what.
