So very thankful! Dr. Bloom and his OR team at Norton's Pavilion saved my vision. Not only is my retina reattached, but the IOI is in place and functional. Very grateful to all of the team. Also enjoyed the jazz music during surgery.

Dr Bloom is the best in his field. Other than his great expertise Dr Bloom is compassionate, never shows impatience and disregard for any questions. He understands the patient angst. His staff is respectful and I particularly love Monica who goes above and beyond to make the patients feel comfortable. Gladys Conn

Dr. Bloom is very thorough and very engaging. I see him every 5-6 weeks and feel extremely comfortable with his knowledge and his experience. At one visit My chart was misplaced and my wait was an hour before anyone realized it. Dr. Bloom was very upset and promised that would never happen again. It hasn't. I think he wants the best experience possible for his patients. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Bloom is a wonderful doctor and an amazing person. He truly cares about his patient's. His staff is exceptional.

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'm so sorry for your wait, and we've taken your feedback to heart. I recently changed my template so I start earlier and end later, spreading the same number of patients out throughout the day. However, there are often emergencies that sometimes do make for unavoidable delays. I do listen to every patient, answer all their questions, and address their individual concerns. The very last thing I say to EVERY patient is "Do you have any more questions." I'm so sorry you left feeling otherwise.

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.
