Beverly Hills, CA |
While I believe Dr. Blumenthal may be a brilliantly educated Physican, his clinic bedside manors are lacking. I flew in from Los Angeles only to spend 5 min with Dr. Blumenthal in clinic, he doesn't really want to answer questions. You're better off seeking care elsewhere.

I'm a retired military health care professional with service related spine injuries and two unsatisfactory corrective military and VA surguries. Consulting with Methodist, Presbyterian and Texas Back Institute. I was most impressed with Dr, Blumenthals complete attention to my needs, desires and understanding. His compassion in working towards the best solution gained my total trust. He performed two surgeries with both resulting in 100% corrective results. The third just proved as successful.
in Carrollton, TX |
I recommend Dr. Blumenthal very highly. He performed my spine surgery. Excellent care. Very informative and clear on my diagnosis and treatment options. He encouraged questions and provided straightforward, easy to understand responses.
