Verified Patient Reviews
I went to see Dr Blumfield as a third opinion for a surgery consult. He offered me an alternative treatment to surgery which will take several wks but will hopefully work. I am hoping his recommendation will be a success and surgery can be avoided.
Excellent experience. Very friendly office staff.
I booked my appointment on Monday after a weekend of excruciating pain and was seen almost right away that morning. Dr. Blumfield understood my situation and calmed my nerves. He diagnosed me quickly and explained the treatment plan. I was back on my feet within a week and went on to run a PB in the marathon! I can't express how thankful I am to Dr. Blumfield and staff for helping me stay injury free and finish strong!
He really cares...he works very hard and never stops!
Dr. Bluefield was very helpful and the whole visit was incredibly fast! Highly recommend!
Very happy we took our daughter to see Dr.Blumfield.
Dr Blumfield was very persanable and extremely prefessional. He put my mind at peace regaeding my concerns.
Took too long to get the prescription. Had to call in three times.
Provides the rigth explanations and is very professional
great visit, always professional, great communication
Great service. Nice nurses. Great doctor.
Great experience. Very nice and experienced staff. Dr. Blumfield is very professional and very nice.
He was very personable,and easy to be with.He appears to be extremely good sat what he does.And ,I feel confident he will make my situation better.
Very friendly receptionist; staff prompt and friendly. Dr. knowledgeable and thorough..explained problem and treatment completely.
Time in office was fairly rushed. Doctor did not explain treatment plan he was going to put me on (risk, benefits, long term mitigations). Basically he just gave me a cortisone shot and I was out. He didn't give any time to ask specific questions or make sure I was comfortable with his recommendation.
Great experience and the doctor was personable.
I made my online appointment only to arrive at the office and find out that they weren't open for another hour. The office staff did not give me a very professional feel, they asked "Oh, you booked online? Yeah, it has the wrong time" was about the explanation they offered. Doctor Blumfield took his time and was pleasant to work with but not sure he really looked at my overall problem. I was given a prescription for steroids for inflammation, and come back in 10 days. He did take an x-ray, but I don't feel like there was a thorough look at what was causing the pain. I also left my insoles to get them 'resurfaced' and he said it would take 10-14 days. A week later the office called to give me the estimated cost and if I wanted to go ahead and do it (even though I told the doctor to go ahead and send them in, no matter what the cost was), I need my insoles to walk or I get horrible plantar fasciitis. It's been 3 weeks and my insoles have not yet been returned. Probably will not be going back.
Professional, efficient and good bedside manner!
Very to the point & super nice..
It was a very helpful visit. He explained what was the condition I have and what actions should be taken.
Straight to the point and was able to get my issue diagnosed quickly and had the technology on site to confirm my issue.
Awesome, very pleasant.
Great staff and friendly Doctor. Understood what I needed. Explained treatment options.
Wait time was about 30 min. The Doctor and staff were excellent.
Everyone at the office performed their job well and were courteous, timely, and friendly. All around good experience.
Warm and caring atmosphere. Great quality care.
Perfect, I am truly impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of Dr. Blumfield and his very competent staff.
My appointment was at 10:30 and I wasn't called back until 11:40. Then I waited in room for Dr. Blumfield until 12:05. He saw me for about 5 min and I was paying by 12:15. This was very frustrating.
Good Doc, will recommend to others, wait time was short and staff is very good. Accuracy of treatment right on and completed in a short time. Will use again.
I like him. He made me feel like I matter - not like a number .
New patient. Quick and easy registration. Was seen within 20mins. Clean and quiet facility. Polite and professional team. Dr. Blumfield was patient, sincere, knowledgeable and provided feedback to address my specific needs as a runner/individual (not just another patient). Highly recommend!
I went to have a callous shaved from my left big toe and he cut into my skin with his scalpel and my toe started bleeding. He sent me home with butterfly bandages and coverings for my toe. It was not a good experience.
Nice people and very quick!!
Very good experience with Dr. Blumfield. I would refer friends to him.
Un Profesional, atento y agradable. Tiene los servicios auxiliares en su consultorio, no necesitas otras citas ni desplazarte hacia otros lugares. Te soluciona lo mejor posible tu sintoma. Su personal es muy eficiente y habla tambien el espanol. Muy accesible el lugar y muy buen estacionamiento.
He was great
Very professional explain to me what is my next step that I need to take before making a decision on my foot if needed surgery or amputation of my foot.
After 16 years of being a patient of Dr. Blumfield's and having three foot surgeries performed by him, I can highly recommend
My first visit with Dr. Blumfield. He did an excellent job.
Very reassuring. Competent.
Very thorough polite fast
Great doctor. Friendly staff. Gave me straightfoward diagnosis and recommendations. I am a runner and he understood my need to continue with this activity.
Seemed like the staff was friendly and knew what they were doing. My only quip would have to be that the door to the exam room was wide open the whole time - from the moment the nurse took my blood pressure, to the first Dr walking in to asses the ailment, until Dr. Blumfield walked in and completed the visit. There were other patients semi-freely walking around the hall (to and from exam rooms) only 10 ft. away from where I would assume I'd have more privacy to discuss things with the Dr. Overall it was an OK experience, but definitely something I've never witnessed at any Dr.'s office before. Also, the ZocDoc paperwork I submitted was null as their system was not set up to retrieve it - so I had to fill out all the basic info that I had hoped to avoid.
I have had foot pain for years. The doctors I saw in the past didn't think anything was wrong. Dr. Blumfield quickly recognized that I had Morton's Neuroma and we are working on fixing it right now. There was, however, some booking confusion. I set up an appointment at 2:00 and their office sent an e-mail saying that the appointment was confirmed. I arrive at 1:45 to fill out paper work but the office was closed. I had to call at 2:05 to see what was going on because it was still locked. The doctor was in a surgery and wouldn't be back until 3:00. But in the end it all worked out.
Tech savvy and knowledgeable doctor. I would recommend
Dr. Bloomfield is a professional
Dr. Blumfield is very nice. I had not been there in a long time, but he remembered me. Answered my questions and gave me kind treatment. Wait time was only concern.
If you live on the West Side of Houston you need to see Dr. Blumfield !!!!!!
So far so good!
I had a very good visit with Dr. Blumfield. The facility was nice and clean, his assistants were nice and Dr. Blumfield figured how to help with my callous issue.
Onlie system didn't work. I booked at Gessner office and doctor was at Katy office. Luckily, had time to drive between the two.
Very professional and competent doctor. Would highly recommend.
Friendly staff. Doctor was knowledgeable and efficient, and did not order any unnecessary tests. He diagnosed, made recommendations, and scheduled a follow up. Other than the lengthy wait time, I was very happy with the visit.
The doctor is very nice very understanding and very gentle his secretaries were helpful and nice.
I was expecting for a long wait but I was called in in less than 30 mins. With in an hour, I was out of the clinic and that is with a procedure done. He explains well with illustration so a layman can understand. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Blumfield is an awesome doctor! He made my visit as quick and painless as possible! I definitely recommend him!
I like he is good doctor
I liked the physician. I DID NOT care at all for the hour and ten minute wait.
He was very nice but the waiting room was so full that some people had to stand. I was on time but waited 50 minutes to see the doctor.
He was very professional and very kind. His office staff was excellent.
Excellent doctor and staff!
Best in Houston!
I made a same-day appointment, so a less than 30 minute wait is good. Dr Blumfield understood my needs -- both immediate (minimize pain in training for the Houston Marathon Jan 2014) and long-term (eliminate the cause of my foot pain ... the dreaded bunion) and was very pragmatic and no-nonsense about it the path forward. I look forward to getting this foot pain addressed and resolved for good!
Getting one's toenail removed is never fun, but he made it comfortable and he's very nice.
I thought the visit went well. He answered all my questions and asked me a few. He has done an osteotomy on me before and it went very well; no complications. I'm using him again on my other foot. The wait time in the office was horrible; almost an hour and the tiny waiting room was crammed with people. Call before you go to your appointment or you will waste alot of time just sitting there for a 15 min appt.
My experience was very lackluster to say the least. First off I had to sit in the waiting room for more than an hour after my appointment was suppose to start (I mean why even book an appointment?!) Once I finally got into the patient room I was prompted to answer all of the same pre-screening questions I had already answered an hour earlier. When I finally got to see the doctor, he didn't even have the courtesy to apologize for the wait he simply said "never take vacation," implying that's he is sooo busy after taking time off. Aren't we all?! After no more than 5 minutes of talking he decided to give me shot. Afterwards, in his rushed to leave the room he neglected to put a band-aid on the injection site which then bled on my foot and shoe. Overall, not a fan.
I highly recommend this doctor
He was great. I'm recommending him and will schedule my fiancé for an appointment.
Very pleased with visit! He was thorough and very understanding. Came up with a great plan of action to heal my foot!
He has a great way of addressing something right away w/o wasting time and was right to the point. Also very personable and didn't rush me though he was very busy.
Ithought everyone was very nice, wait time was not long, it was very organized office on gessner.
very impressed for a first visit
Direct, no nonsense and to the point. Answered all my questions and gave me a plan of care.
It was the first meeting, but it went great!
Professional, prompt and competent.
Very friendly staff. Dr seems very knowledgeable. Wait was a little long but not bad.
Performed surgery on my broken foot. Highly recommend him! He even recognized me on the street, away from his office.
He was friendly as was his staff.
Very professional and easy to talk to about your issues.
Quick, efficient, knowledgeable.
Overall good visit, brief and to the point. Front office staff was polite and got me in quickly. Felt the doctor could have been a little more thorough.
this was a follow up visit so it was short. It went well.
Great Dr. Value his opinion completely!
His service was a little too fast. I would have liked the after care explained a little more in detail but other than that i felt he was knowledgeble in his field. The wait time was long and no one apologized for that. The staff were friendly.
Dr.Blumfield was very nice and all the staff also. I would recommend him to my friends
i was very impressed with Dr Blumfield. He was very professional and reassuring. Everything was done as he said and I have been very happy with the results of my bunion surgery. No complications. Highly recommend.
I was so thankful he recommended the new laser treatment for my poor toes. It was quick and mostly pain less ( just a little heat) Though my insurance wouldn't cover, it was affordable.
Ok, answered all questions.
Extremely professional. Seemed very knowledgeable. Nice reassuring manner about him.
I liked him and hope he can help my feet. Go back in two weeks. Gave me some pads to put in my sneakers to help flat feet.
I went in to see him for a second opinion on the course of action for the pain in my foot. He was very professional, fully explained several options, the duration and cost of each one, and what to expect. We'll see how it goes!
