This was an "emergency" visit set up by my local doctor and near Memorial Day holiday. They were able to not only make an appointment for the next day but when I arrived, wait time was minimal. Dr Bloom soothed my fears. They are so professional and friendly makes it a joy going. Since I only have vision in one eye it is always scary when it "acts" up. Their web site is also USER friendly for visually impaired LOVE THAT

Dr. Bloom has been treating me for many years. I’m diabetic and have had multiple problems with my eyes. He’s the best in Louisville. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.

We have been going to Dr. Bloom since 2008. In all those years we have gotten excellent care with a caring staff and very caring doctors. I could write many pages of our visits there. My mom, husband and I all see doctors at the various office locations. in my opinion they are the best in town. They take the time it takes to answer all questions and concerns. The surgeons are top notch. I recommend the office to every one I talk to that needs eye care.

Dr. Bloom came in his office on a Saturday morning to do surgery on my eye for a retinal tear so I could fly to San Francisco the next day. He and his staff were wonderful! I cannot thank him enough for going above and beyond to ensure my safety and comfort.

At age 39, I sought an Ophthalmologist regarding a "black dot" impairing my vision. After several futile consultations, Dr. Bloom diagnosed me with a very rare hereditary degenerative disease which can affect vision. Moreover, he was able to offer treatment options, equating to HOPE when desperately needed. Since then, he has consistently provided superior care, both medically and personally supportive, by proving to be an integral member of my team, fighting this disease and its affects..

Dr. Bloom has been my ophthalmologist for close to 15 years. I suffer from ocular histoplasmosis. Dr. Bloom has performed multiple laser surgeries on both of eyes, one of which was extremely close the the retina. When my husband was stationed overseas a few years ago, my histoplasmosis flared up. Without hesitation, I booked the 8+ hour flight to Louisville from Germany just to see Dr. Bloom. In over a decade, I have never felt I was in anything other than extremely competent and capable hands.

Dr. Bloom cared for me after cataract surgery with multifocal lenses. His care was exceptional. After the cataract surgery, I had to undergo vitreoretinal surgery to repair a macular hole. Dr. Bloom was knowledgeable and quick to act. I would recommend his care to anyone who could benefit from his personal approach to each patient and their concerns and conditions. I was highly satisfied with his work.
