Very short visit. He was professional. Maybe I'm just healthy but he didn't spend very long with me.

Pros: Office staff was friendly and courteous, I had only a 5-10 min wait, and office is in a convenient location Cons: Dr. Bloom was very curt, and I found his bedside manner to be condescending. I came in to get a mole checked (turned out to be something else; luckily, benign). He told me what it was, and that was that. When I asked what I consider to be normal follow-up questions (i.e. "how would I remove this blemish? how did it get there? how can I prevent it from darkening/growing?"), he acted as if it were a chore to answer me (long sigh, followed by "WELL..."). I had to ask the office staff if I could look at the intake form so I could at least see what my skin condition was called, since the doctor was in and out so fast, and did not seem amenable to me asking such basic questions, like, "Can you tell me, again, what this skin condition is called?" In total, he spent no more than 5 minutes with me. That was enough for me! I would not go back to Dr. Bloom.

Big improvement over other dermatologists I have seen. Dr. Bloom took his time with me and was very thorough, not just giving me orders or recommendations, but explaining what his reasons were so that I could understand how each part would affect my health.

The assistant is usually a bit awkward and sometimes seems confused (I've been going here a year now, so she's not new). Today, she called me up, showed me the exam room, shooed me in, and shut the door! Didn't even ask me questions or say that the doctor would be with me soon. A couple of occasions, she doesn't even know why I'm there and I end up wasting time because she doesn't know if I need to put on a gown or not. The doctor always does a great job. Always good at listening to my issues and giving treatment accurately and efficiently. He's very friendly and has a good bedside manner.

This was my first visit with the doctor. I have been seeing dermatologists for many for skin cancer scans and treatment. I always have pre-cancers which are destroyed by the doctor with liquid nitrogen. Dr Bloom did not say or do anything about my pre-cancers. I will not return to him.

This was the shortest assessment I have had so far, after scheduling a year ago. I guess I have no immediate skin threat.

Quick and effective - took good care of me. The only thing I would prefer is that the office used the digital medical history from zocdoc rather than making me fill out that typical form.
