I had a pain on my toe that had been there for about 3 weeks. I made an appointment for the very next day and was taken straight back to a room. Dr. Blumfield was in there speaking with me within10 minutes and I was in and out of the office within an hour and a half. This time included him diagnosing what was wrong (a small cyst), getting me into a room to remove it, removing it and stitching up the wound, and me checking out. It was SUCH an easy process and he was very helpful with everything. This was one of the best and easiest doctor appointments I've had, very glad I went with Dr. B.

The doctor was only with me for less than 5 minutes, I would have liked a little more time. However, he found the source of my problem and devised a treatment plan I am comfortable with.

Dr. Blumfield is a nice guy, but he really didn’t look into what was wrong with my feet. He gave me some pain meds, told me to wear a boot and then see him next week. I declined the boot andthere’s no way I’m coming back to see him or any other podiatrist. The office was also very uninviting. I’m used to very calm places with nice music or none at all. It was hot, the music was blasting tejano. The people just expect you to walk around and know where you’re going. The nurses I had were nice but not great. My appointment probably took longer due to the fact that the nurse was taking her sweet time looking at toys on Walmart.com. I definitely just wasted money.

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.

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 backon 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!

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 hasthe 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.

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 timeto ask specific questions or make sure I was comfortable with his recommendation.
