The wait time is 2-3 hours and once you finally get to see the Dr., he becomes inpatient if you start asking questions. Also lacks interest in the value of the patients time spent in a crowded, often freezing waiting rooms.

I just visited Dr Bloom today. I can not begin to tell you how wonderful he and his staff are. From the time I make my appointment, to when I exit, everyone that I come in contact with are caring, friendly, and professional . You can not find another health care provider that enjoys his practice and his patients more that Dr Bloom and his staff. Thank you so very much for taking great care of me, my entire self, not just my eyes.

I am so thankful every day for Dr. Bloom and his team. From the initial greeting at the reception desk to the final post op exam, they were exceptionally compassionate, friendly, and professional. He and his team have always taken the extra time and effort to be sure I had the best possible care even after hours and on weekends. They are an extremely dedicated and talented team with the rare expertise to save your eyesight. It is an invaluable gift. I wake up grateful to them every day!

My daughter, a Type I diabetic has Dr. Bloom to thank for her eyesight. I am now treated by Dr. Bloom for Macular Degeneration. He is kind, compassionate and very, very good! If you are looking for an excellent opthamologist, look no further! Other than being a fine Dr. he appears to understand that fear is prevalent when dealing with people who have MD, he is quick to allay those fears. I have recommended Dr. Bloom to many of my friends. No complaints!

I see Dr. Bloom for diabetic eye care. I have always found him to be very professional, friendly, and more than willing to take the time to answer questions. I highly recommend him if you are looking for high quality eye care.

Dr Bloom saved my eyesight in my right eye. I had a detached retina in December 2015 that Dr Bloom surgically repaired. He took the time with me to let me know exactly what he was going to do and the surgery was over in no time. I am still healing but have my full peripheral vision back. I highly recommend Dr. Bloom for anyone with retina issues.
