Dr. Blam came in and asked me to describe my problem. He then proceeded to speak over me and did not let me finish my sentences. He did not listen closely to my attempts to describe things in more detail. After assuring me it was nothing major like cancer, a fracture or an infection, he was ready to move on. He looked briefly at my back, but not in the affected area. He gave me the option to get X-rays but at the same time was dismissive of the notion that they would show anything useful.

My husband was in such severe pain and it altered his life all I can say is Dr. Yoon recommended Dr. Blam,we went to him~ he was absolutely amazing very matter-of-fact and to the point. Had the surgery done my husband is pain-free and doing wel!. I would recommend Dr Blam to anyone dealing with back pain, entire staff was amazing. I put in plenty of calls to the staff due to the pain my husband was in, they addressed everything immediately took great care of him we love them~Extremely grateful

Saw Dr. B. 4 continued pain/numbness/weak rt. leg & some left side after surgery by Dr. Gelb in 10/14. After review of X-ray & MRI, Dr. B. rapid fire list of possible Tx's. At time have other medical priorities and could he send note listing. He and his secretary (S?) said they would. After 3 follow-up calls & visit - nothing. Instead secretary called and stated Dr. B. referred me to their practice's DO (!) w/o explanation. Dr. B= another assembly line phy. Not real caring. Would not recommend

I waited over an hour after my scheduled time to have my first meeting with Dr. Blam. I was in the small examining room for over half an hour. When he finally entered he asked "What did you want from me?" and then interrupted me approximately 45 seconds later telling me that there was nothing he could do and suggesting I consider a procedure that he stated had no scientific background and of which he knew almost nothing. This was a waste of my money and time.
in New Windsor |
He rushed through the appointment, he didn't address all my concerns. He only wanted to talk about either my cervical spine or my lumber spine not both as he was sure to tell me he couldn't bill for both of them. This appointment was such a waste of my time and money. I've been in pain for a while with my back and finally had a MRI to see what the issues are, and was hoping this doctor could help me determine what actions if any he could provide or recommend so that I could get some relief.
in HALETHORPE |
Dr. Blam helped my husband tremendously! Very personable and to the point and explained everything clearly. I so appreciate his skill and his willingness to be available. My husband had surgery today and is already feeling better! I would absolutely recommend him.
