Dr. Blumenfeld is a true throwback, to an era when physicians truly cared about their patients and treated them as important people regardless of their status. I cannot say enough of how much I respect this man. He took the time to see me multiple times after my hip surgery in the hospital to assure my comfort and well being. He is also a very thorough doctor, not relying on x rays but rather his own observations using x rays for confirmation of his findings. My family and I thank you deeply.

I had right-leg Total Knee Replacement surgery performed by Dr. Blumenfeld May 2014. This surgeon and his nurse, MaryPat, are incredibly proficient, compassionate, and patient. They BOTH make difficult situations proceed as smooth as possible. What a team Dr. Blumenfeld and MaryPat!

I had a knee replacement 10 days ago. I was completely at ease ONLY because Dr Blumenfeld has explained everything in advance. He is one of the most compassionate doctors I've ever had. Move been a RN for 35 years so I've seen it all. I felt in my heart and my brain I was in the best hands possible. Me is a strong patient advocate also. There were a few hiccups in the hospital after surgery and he let those involved he was not happy with the situation - he is the BEST.
