Awesome experience! I have had multiple foot issues for many years. While some will never be cured completely all were either totally resolved, or resolved to the point I am pain free for the first time in years. All of this with no surgery! I would highly recommend Dr Blustein!! Dayle Mazzarella, Tampa

I have been seeing Dr Bluestein for years and he recently told me about a treatment for plantar faciatis called EPAT. IHe assured me he has has phenomenal success with this treatment. I was skeptical at first because of the price but I figured if I had surgery I'd miss 2-4 weeks of work which would cost more. Well to my amazement I am almost pain free and now I just wait for it to completely heal. I highly recommend Dr. Bluestein and his caring staff for all your foot related needs!!!

I couldn't place any weigh on my right foot 90 days ago. After X-raying my foot,the Dr decide to give me a Cortisone shot...it helped for 3 days only.Return for my second,then third visit for any shot....30% better only(he said that's rare)..so I opt for his suggestion(not cover by Insurance $$) Shockwave treatment(once a week for 3 weeks)....I can't believe it's working ! I'm at 90% and due to see the Dr again in 3 weeks. He is Good ., Thanks for the Caring. Dennis

I went to visit Dr. Blustein to treat my toenail after being previously misdiagnosed by another physician. After providing a brief summary it was determined that the root cause was trauma. After the removable of the toenail by Dr. Blustein, the pain was walking has vanished. I highly recommend Dr. Blustein if you want a physician who is extremely knowledgeable and cares about the well-being of his patients.

Dr. Blustein is the best! I had the grossest toe nail fungus you can imagine. He was prudent in his diagnosis and his decision to best deal with the fungus. He suggested Laser treatment and did say it should might take a year for a new year to come in. That was in April and it is now August and a new healthy nail is coming in with very little evidence of the fungus that had been present. In addition, the doctor is very congenial; he listens and considers any other issues and conditions you may

I have been seeing Dr. Blustein for a while now for some pain in one of my feet from a bone bruise due to overactivity amongst other things, also to undergo laser treatment for hopeful regrowth of a toenail damaged years ago from a fungal infection. Not only did the pain from the bruised bone just about entirely go away (also with some prescribed Physical Therapy), but the toenail has grown back better than it ever was and looks good as new. I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Blustein!

Dr. Blustein had a great bedside manner, was timely, his office was clean, staff was pleasant, and most importantly, he was very thorough in explaining what was going on with my pain, reviewing the x rays with me, and giving me all of my options with the benefits and risks of each. Would absolutely recommend and see again if it becomes necessary.

My wife has used Dr. Blustein for a number of years and had great success. I had a piece of glass imbedded in my foot for a couple of weeks. Very aggravating. Saw my primary care physician to clean out the infection, but he did not x-ray or treat as needed. Dr. Blustein x-rayed the foot to locate the glass and then proceeded to remove it. He then took the time to re-xray to be sure that all was removed. Went back after 5 days and it has healed. Love his bedside manner.

I went in to see him about pain in my foot. He identified and relieved me of my pain that all the other Doctors never could. I even went as far as surgery with one Doctor and He didn't correct what Dr Bluestein did with one visit and no surgery. Finally after 20 plus years, I am pain-free! In my opinion, He is very credible.
