      Dr Blume was personal and appeared concerned. Said I had IBS and did give a treatment that worked. However, taking imodium AD isn't good for long term. The REAL problem is billing. I do NOT recommend getting blood work in the office. Labcorp still does not have the issues resolved and Dr Blume office has NEVER gotten back to me. The person to talk with is never available.

      He was very thorough with my husband's case and was even an out of the box thinker to prevent doing yet another invasive surgery on my husband. He's bedside manners were excellent and was willing to explain any questions we might have! Thank you!! (We saw him in a hospital setting)
