Satisfactory; the NP who took my history (after I filled out the form) was friendly; the exam room was freezing cold; Dr. Blum's bedside manner was brisk and efficient, approaching rushed; note for women, she "doesn't prescribe" birth control, which is a fairly standard treatment for hormonal acne, so if that's something you've used before and want to keep using, find a different doctor.

The doctor was nice and gave me all of the information I need. However, she spoke fast, indicating that the appointment time was limited. The advice she gave me also contradicted advice she gave me over the phone a couple of months ago. I will take her advice but I wish she was more consistent.

I thought Dr. Blum was very professional and knowledgeable. The offices are very modern and the staff was very professional and nice which you don't see in a lot of doctor's offices. I would recommend. I was referred by a co-worker whose niece has been seeing Dr. Blum for many years.

First time w/ Dr. Blum & my first annual skin check in a long time. The wait time to be seen was minimal and the foh staff was nice. The Dr. was straight to the point when I got in. She explained everything thoroughly as she did the exam and asked if I had any questions, which I didn't. Not sure what more you would want in a doctor...who wants to be there all day? Not me. If you have questions, ask. I am sure she'd be happy to answer them, if not, she'll move on to her next appt.

So pleased with my appointment. For all of my skin issues Robin gave me very clear instructions on what to do and told me exactly what was causing my skin to freak out. Going back next week for a follow up and will probably continue to see her as my dermatologist.

I'm a stickler when choosing a doctor. I want the best. And why wouldn't I? I'm just like you. Dr. Blum's rating's were high and I was able to see her within 2 days of deciding it was finally time to do something about this Plantars Wart on the underside of my big toe. Wart was the size of my thumb nail. It was so painful. Deep roots. The wart changed the way I walked to avoid putting pressure on it. The problem persisted for months and was on my mind every day. You can't avoid it. That's not a good thing. So, I finally met with Dr. Blum and she was great. I'm a very thorough 'high maintenance' patient: ask a lot of questions (perhaps dumb ones) and want to make sure we are taking the right steps to rid this wart (or whatever problem I have). How my insurance works is the earliest I'm able to see Dr. Blum is every 10 days after receiving the freeze treatment (different ins. providers vary). Dr. Blum shared with me that most patients see her 1-2 times for wart treatments and don't return. It's a process most patients aren't willing to commit to. There is homework required to rid the wart that most patients are not willing to do. I saw her every 10-15 days for 2 months. Today was the final day I saw her as my wart is completely healed, all in all 55 days. I saw great improvement every time I went in to see her. If you told me I can rid this horrible wart (a wart that Dr. Blum told me is one of the deepest roots she has ever seen) in 55 days, I'd say sign me up. Even Dr. Blum and the front desk staff were surprised on how well and quick it healed. We'll that's what happened. I stuck to the program. Dr. Blum did a great job caring, scrapping and freezing the wart. Yes there is a slight pinch of pain when receiving the freeze treatment but its a good pain, it's a pain knowing you're steps closer to healing. I made a joke with her saying had you known I was going to be such a great patient and follow close direction on ridding the wart we could have made a video success tutorial about this wart and share how positive this experience was. I will go back to Dr. Blum with any Dermo needs and will refer everyone to her. She's great. She's straight to the point with no BS, no fluff. Warts are interesting. It wouldn't be fair to rate Dr. Blum after the first appointment. The doctor and the patient both need to do their jobs to rid a wart and that's exactly what we did. I followed to a tee. So, speaking from someone that had a horrible wart, took me 2 months to rid it. Guessing yours isn't as bad as mine you'll be better in no time. Just stick to your specific plan Dr. Blum lays out, stick to the schedule, be accountable, listen to Dr. Blum, freeze the bad boy off and your life will resume back to normal. If I could, I'd buy Dr. Blum a drink. Thank you to Dr. Blum and the great front office staff! Your favorite patient (well, hopefully I cracked the top 5)
