Dr. Blume and the staff at the 415 Broadway office are amazing. I always feel welcomed and informed during my visits. However, the wait time for every visit is a bit long. I typically arrive for my appointment at least 10-15minutes prior, but it usually takes about an hour to be seen.

Going to a gynecologist for an exam is always fraught with anxiety. Dr. Brignoni-Blume was lovely and put me immediately at ease. Everyone wants their doctor to be knowledgeable, but to hope for someone also sensitive and compassionate is areal bonus. Some doctors have their eyes on a computer screen; Dr. Brignoni-Blume looked at me, listened to me, and connected with me. It was my first appointment with her; she'll be my doctor from now on.

The entire appointment was really great and professional from the minute I walked in the door. The receptionist was very friendly, I was taken back within 10 minutes and Dr Brignoni-Blume was hands down one of the nicest and most genuinedoctors I’ve seen in a while. She took time to listen to my concerns, was very knowledgable and very professional. Would highly recommend.

Maiden Lane in Soho is clean, has nice bright light in the lobby, and the front desk ladies were really nice. I went in for a birth control prescription and really liked Dr. Blume at first because she was energetic andfriendly. Then, when she learned that I've been dating my boyfriend for a while and that I've been off BC for a while, she said "wow poor guy had to go back and forth huh?" I was extremely put off by her insinuation that my boyfriend was suffering more from having to use a condom than I was from having my hormones synthetically disrupted. From a female doctor, this was even more shocking and disappointing. And to top it all off, she made a culturally insensitive comment about my legal name rhyming with that of one of her asian friends’ names and laughed. All in all it was an uncomfortable and unpleasant experience. I will not be back.

Dr. Blume is amazing. She is very energetic and warm. She took the time to explain various options and even answer questions I had about my friends' birth control. She went above and beyond in her role and was friendly aswell - which is sometimes hard to find with a physician.

I've been seeing Dr. Blume for years and followed her to multiple offices. She's the best OBGYN I've seen in NYC and she really helped me by accurately diagnosing and treating me. I've been extremely healthy since my first visit withher. She saved me from a very long depression, simply by listening and being such an educated and wonderful doctor.

I’m so over the moon regarding my appointment with Dr. Blume! I’ve had bad experiences with GYNs in the past as a queer person, but her ability to understand where I was coming from, validate my experiences, and find a solutionfor my problem made me well-up. So kind and explanatory. I’m grateful to have found this office!

Dr. Brignoni-Blume was so helpful and friendly. She addressed the problems I've been having in a way previous doctors have not. Her staff was also friendly, and I was in and out of the office within half an hour, most ofmy time spent with the doctor. Would highly recommend seeing her, particularly if you have ongoing problems that others have not addressed.
