Verified Patient Reviews
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.
Dr. Blum is an excellent doctor. My daughter and I have been seeing her for years, and it's always good to see her again. She is kind, thorough, pleasant, and explains things clearly. We are fortunate to have her as our doctor.
She was very through and took her time even asking if I had questions.
This was one of the best physician's visits I ever had. Dr. Blum and her staff were very professional and courteous!!!!
She's straight to the point, which I like. Didn't completely suit me, as I'm trying to cure skin issues holistically now, but good for skin checks.
Another perfect visit. Dr. Blum is a top-notch doctor in all respects. Her practice is incredibly well run, operated by an outstanding professional staff. Her expertise and bedside manner are the best medicine has to offer. I have been a happy patient of Dr. Blum's for many years.
Very clean and professional office. The entire staff were extremely nice and accommodating. The doctor was very thorough and didn't make me feel rushed like some other doctors do. Highly recommend!!
I got there earlier and explained I had to leave as early as possible and so the doc saw me earlier to make it easier to keep my subsequent appt.
I regularly see Dr. Blum for annual checkups. She is lovely and easy to talk to. Very thorough and takes time to address any concerns and issues.
Great Doctor with amazing bedside manner.
She was great. Great location. And I got what I needed. Smart, real, and gave me the time I needed.
Always a pleasure to visit Dr. Blum. Beautiful office, pleasant staff, and excellent care!
Dr Blum & her staff are terrific. The wait time is minimal, I think I was waiting less than five minutes. She's so friendly, very thorough, asks plenty of questions and makes sure to address all of yours.
Dr.Blum is very good & her staff is excellent & friendly
She was friendly but very quick. I felt the examination was not as thorough as it should be - it felt rushed.
Dr Blum is a great doctor - she's focused and caring and really makes sure you get a chance to ask questions. She also follows up well on previous visits.
Doctor Blum was quick, informative and extremely helpful!
Dr. Blum was super friendly, but professional. I typically have a lot of anxiety regarding my health and her calming presence was reassuring and comforting.
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.
She spoke very quickly and scanned me for moles very fast. I was nervous that she didn't check and though as it should have been.
Dr. Blum as always is great and precise and kind!
She's awesome. she's very casual but professional, She provides you a lot of information and makes you feel comfortable. I'll be going to see her again
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.
She was professional, quick, helpful and congenial. Couldn't ask for more.
Came to see Dr. Blum after my roommate recommended her and I was not disappointed! Super professional and knowledgeable
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)
Such a flawless visit! Quick check-in and no wait time. Dr. Blum was wonderful--really kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. I felt instantly comfortable with her, and she was able to diagnose and treat my problem instantly. A lovely experience all around--highly recommended!
Great doctor! She was on-time, efficient, and explained everything to me in a clear, easy to understand way.
So appreciate Dr. Blum taking the time to see me! I actually came a week early (whoops!) because of a calendar mistake on my end, but her staff was super understanding and they made time for me; I didn't even have to wait. Dr. Blum was thoughtful, to the point and offered serveral different solutions.
Office was small and clean. Front desk was friendly and professional. Dr. Blum was thorough and answered all my questions. She does seem a bit rushed/busy, but that didn't bother me because she answered my questions and the appointment was short and painless. Will be going back!
She was great!!!!
I was not rushed which is unusual for most doctors and she was nice/reassuring with my concerns.
The reception staff had a kind of 'chilly' demeanor. The doctor herself was helpful and informative but not super friendly. I mean its more kind of "Get in, Get Out".
Excellent! She was very professional and she made me feel comfortable.
Fantastic doc - all around great experience.
I saw Dr. Blum after getting a chemical burn from a dental appointment. Office confirmed my last-minute appointment right away and were very kind when I called to confirm. Dr. Blum was efficient yet thorough in the examination and also addressed some questions I had about acne management. She took the time to explain the Rxes she was giving me and what some alternate methods of treatment could be and answered each of the questions I had about my burns — she even acknowledged the cosmetic issues with getting such an obvious burn and explained the best way to handle makeup/concealer, which I appreciated. Her PA was also really excellent and took down all of my concerns before my meeting with Dr. Blum.
Very knowledgeable and thorough - highly recommended!
Visiting Dr. Blum was an extremely pleasant experience! She was warm and friendly, while being very knowledgeable. Will definitely be going back!
Great appointment. Dr. Blum listed to my many skin concerns and was able to provide different treatment options within my comfort zone.
I have found Dr. Blum to be a thorough, patient, well informed professional. She keeps a complete history of my skin conditions & always checks throughly for any new occurrences or changes. Because my family has a significant history of skin cancer, I frequently have concerns and questions. Dr. Blum always answers all my questions and concerns with patience & thoroughness. She has an excellent grasp of the most current literature / studies related to skin care. My experience overall is that she has genuine concern for my well being. Also she is always on time. I can count on her. And when I call with a questions, she always returns my calls in timely fashion.
Dr. Blum is very thorough and personable and did not rush the appointment. Her office staff is pleasant and efficient.
Dr. Blum is amazing as always! Super knowledgable, willing to answer all your questions, knows the right solutions! And genuinely cares about your well-being! Love her!
Dr. Blum was efficient while being thorough, no-nonsense, and answered all my questions. Very straightforward bedside manner, not warm and fuzzy.
She seemed very professional and thorough. Was nice and also efficient. Highly recommend!
I have been to several dermatologists trying to find the right one. This office bright and welcoming! Dr. Blum is great and answered all my questions. She offered several helpful suggestions as well.
Always a pleasure to visit Dr. Blum's office. Everyone is pleasant and professional.
She was very straightforward, informative, and caring in her approach. She did not recommend things she thought would be way over the top and went with the baseline treatments for my needs.
She's a great dermatologist - thorough, direct and friendly. Would highly recommend.
Great Doctor , I will be definitely returning
Dr. Blum is fantastic. She is incredibly thorough and didn't make me feel rushed at all. She patiently answered every question I had and comes across as incredibly knowledgeable.
If it weren't for Dr. Blum I wouldn't have figured out why I was having hair thinning among-st other things I found out about my health. Her recommendation to get blood work help me tremendously!!! She also took care of my itchy scalp. She is super attentive, very helpful and takes her patients overall health seriously.
I was pleased with my first appointment, no wait time and was seen right away by Dr. Blum, she was very direct -
Very professional and thorough. She was friendly as was her staff
Dr. Blum is competent, thorough and straight forward with an excellent bedside manner. She addressed all my issues and questions patiently with her full attention while making me feel comfortable. I highly recommend her.
She is very knowledgeable, professional and the wait time is minimal. I highly recommend her! She understands the challenges of work stress and how difficult it is to also take on acne at the same time. She has really helped me reduce this additional stress in my life.
Excellent! Always helpful and resolves the issues right away. Even gives out samples and goes out of her way. Greatly recommend!
super fast. always friendly. answers all my questions.
Dr. Robin was knowledgeable, to the point, and very helpful. My skin is glowing again!
I went to Dr. Blum w/ a host of issues that piled up until I couldn't take it anymore. She seems like she really knows what she's talking about which is great, but her bedside manner was a little bit off-putting. I don't know how to explain it exactly- she was nice and informative, but something about the way she talked to me made me feel like I was an annoyance (like what one of the other reviews here said). In the end, as long as she knows what she's doing, that's what's important, but as hair and skin issues can be very sensitive/emotional for the patient, a warm demeanor is also nice.
I really enjoyed my visit. She's very professional and warm, as well. I thought she was thorough and insightful in her assessment. I'll be back to see her again.
Compassionate, responsive, informative. Great doctor.
Dr Blum is a wonderful professional doctor, I would highly recommend
Very nice Doctor. Simple process. In and out. Office is located in a great spot with its own door to 7th avenue.
She's very accommodating. She was able to answer all questions I have and was able to put me at ease. She has gentle hands as well. She's great at what she do!
I want to start by saying this was my first visit ever to a dermatologist - and I know that due to my recent adult acne that surfaced almost 6 months ago, it was long overdue. I broke out with a minor rash which is what sparked me to finally go visit one. I understand that I had a 'laundry list' of items to talk about but I started to feel rushed through my appt. and almost as if I was an annoying patient... which was odd and didn't feel great. When Dr. Blum entered she was bright and cheery and friendly - and I felt comfortable with her but towards the end I felt uneasy. I also felt like my prescriptions were told to me so quickly I could barely remember everything that was being given and how to take them. The office staff was nice, friendly and everything was bright and clean.
She is professional, knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner.
Dr. Robin Blum was extremely thorough. She is an expert in her field, took the time to examine me, and gave me a detailed explanation of my options. She is extremely knowledgable in moles and I would highly recommend her. Without a doubt, the best experience I have had with a dermatologist. In addition, the front desk staff was kind, efficient, and very welcoming. The office is gorgeous - clean and serene.
I went for my annual skin check. The doctor was right on time. She has great bedside manner. Very well informed. Did a through exam. I am highly allergic to poison ivy and was just getting rid of a small patch. So She was even able to give me something for it. The office looks brand new and extremely clean. I highly recommend!!
Dr. Blum was knowledgable, patient, and kind. She answered all my questions and took her time. Very pleased.
Dr. Blum was friendly, efficient, and to the point. She explained things in enough detail and answered all of my questions.
She was great. Didn't rush though the appointment. Gave thoughtful answers to my questions. Would definitely go back.
A very kind, serious and nice doctor! Beautiful office and easy process.
Dr. Blum prescribes medication. No more no less.
I can't recommend Dr. Blum highly enough! She is always quick, through, and very approachable with all sorts of questions. She gives great advice for skin care (without making me feel like I'm being scolded for not enough sunscreen...)
Dr. Blum was professional and thorough. I'll go back.
Dr. Blum is fantastic both as a dermatologist and a person. Thanks to her my acne is almost gone and she continues to ensure that my skin remains healthy. She really cares about her patients and is very attentive. I'm so grateful to have found such a great dermatologist!
Dr. Blum is proactive and knowledgeable. She addressed all of my concerns and was very encouraging while doing so. I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Blum was comprehensive and took time to explain things, answer questions, and offer sound advice. Office staff was pleasant and professional.
Great doc, good staff and really clean office. You're in and you're out. No time wasted.
Always professional and a great experience.
Dr. Blum was extremely kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend her to others.
Speedy service and very kind, caring staff. Dr. Blum seemed busy but she was very attentive and answered all my questions. I'd go again.
Very knowledgeable and straightforward. Realistic about the difference between medical and cosmetic.
Got right into technicality of skin screenimgs and different type of skin diseases. She was very sound and thorough which is good, but lacked in personality which contributes to why she got right into technical jargon.
Great experience! Top-notch customer service. Greeted immediately by friendly, professional staff. The doctor's assistant was super-helpful and right there to expedite quality service. Explained everything that was going to happen. The doctor came in right away, made a wonderful introduction, asked about me and the reason for my visit. Explained everything she was doing in a thoughtful and proficient way much like a PowerPoint presentation but was very warm and friendly! In and out in 20 minutes. Perfect!
Really liked her. Very confident about her work and thorough.
I was dealing with a mildly uncomfortable condition and accidentally showed up to my appointment a week early. Dr. Blum was still able to see me after just a 15 min wait and even performed a small procedure. Such a lifesaver - I don't know what I would have done if they hadn't been able to see me!
My appointment with Dr. Blum was efficient and very professional. I did ask for a skin check, though, and in spite of only being at the bedside for 5-10 minutes, she asked that I come back for that d/t "time" reasons. Asking me to come back felt like a billing concern, and that was disappointing. When I do go for my skin check, I think it will be with someone else.
Dr. Blum was efficient and kind. Took my concerns seriously and encouraged me to come back.
Second time seeing the Doc. She's great. Answers your questions. Is super honest. And very helpful. You're in and you're out. The staff is great too and the office is in pristine condition.
In my 5+ year tenure in New York, Dr. Bloom and her staff are definitely the most accommodating office I've visited. They remembered who I am (despite a 3 year lapse in visits), actually care about my wants/needs and take the time to get to know me. I've recommended a number of people to visit Dr. Blum, and I will continue to do so!
Dr. Blum was very friendly and much more informative than dermatologists I've had in the past. She also requested I fax over records from my last doctor so she can make a better decision on how to proceed with some atypical moles -- I appreciate that she's not going to make any unnecessary scars!
There is usually no wait time at all. Dr. Blum is a great doctor who cares about her patients. I highly recommend her!
Robin is absolutely wonderful! She takes her time to let you explain your ailment/issue. She then clearly takes you through all the options for both prevention and treatment. She then works with you on what option will work best for you. She's very personable, she will make you feel comfortable, and has excellent bedside manner. I would recommend anyone looking for a new dermatologist to go see her.
She listened and was thoughtful. I would return.
She is absolutely excellent--very professional and very skilled. She did a procedure in half the time another doctor of mine did, and she was extremely helpful in her recommendations. She was also very nice to talk me through everything, since I am terrible at handling even the most minor medical procedures. I highly recommend her.
Very friendly and professional. My daughter was with me, and Dr. Blum was very pleasant toward her as well.
Quick and efficent
Great advice, zero wait time, she spent time understanding my condition and needs. Great experience! Will update how the results were in a few weeks.
Dr Blum was very thorough and addressed all of my concerns during my appointment. She is a great listener. The office is really nice and clean with a modern yet comfortable feel. Her office staff are very friendly and outgoing. I will definitely go back if I have any other concerns
Was a huge fan. She was straight forward, professional, warm. Great find.
Great office. Great staff. Great doctor.
Great experience, doctor is knowledgeable and caring. She explains treatment and options well. Will definitely go back.
She made me feel comfortable right away. Quickly assessed my issue and didn't try to up sell me on any products or services. She gave it to me straight which was amazing and I will definitely go back to see her in the future.
The office is professional and warm. I felt respected and cared for from the moment I arrived.
Dr. Blum is the best! Easy to book and appointment, always on time, very personable, very nice office setting. Good for all type of medical issues, but also up to date on cosmetic treatments including Botox and peels.
Thorough, professional, warm
I had a great visit at this office. The assistant was pleasant and informative, my paperwork was processed quickly, and I didn't have to wait long at all. Dr. Blum was friendly and professional and put me at ease without making me feel like a hypochondriac or like I'd been neglecting my health. I highly recommend this office, and Dr. Blum!
Great with adults and kids too!
I came in for a skin screening and had a lot of questions. Dr. Blum was very well informed and put me at ease. She was friendly and provided me with a helpful read-along guide as we discussed things to watch out for. Only complaint was that the exam and visit felt rushed. Can't believe how quickly I was in and out... The exam didn't feel super thorough, although that doesn't necessarily mean it wasn't. Just wish there'd been a little more time!
Very Knowledgeable and kind!
Personable, polite and informative. No wait time
Dr Blum is fantastic. Very quick however extremely thorough. Her care has given me results years of other dermatologists couldn't deliver. Love her!
She was much more thorough and informative than other dermatologists I've seen in the past for a skin exam. She made me feel comfortable and I'd definitely recommend her.
I love Dr Blum. She is so friendly and attentive. Her office is very clean and staff is nice. Always a great experience!
She's awesome! :)
Knowledgeable, caring, good bedside manner. Extremely competent. Highly recommend.
Dr. Blum was very knowledgable, professional and courteous. I would highly recommend her.
I saw Dr Blum for a regular skin check. She was very nice, efficient and professional. Almost no waiting time. Will definitely go back.
I came into her office in a great mood and found that when I left I felt awful about myself and incredibly stressed. I think this was due to the way she approached the problem. She was cordial enough, but very firm about what she felt I needed and didn't really hear my concerns. She never once asked me anything deep enough to understand out try to diagnose the cause of the problem. As a result, I left feeling really discouraged and hopeless when, had she taken a little more interest and delved deeper, I think the blanket, one-size-fits-all prescriptions I left with may not have been my only salvation. Don't get me wrong, I would've happily accepted the usual prescriptions if the source of my acne was an absolute mystery, but without asking the right questions and really being invested in each patient as a unique human being, you lose the opportunity to solve the real problem. It's easy and lazy to dismiss the root cause by labeling it elusive and then dismissing in favor of drugs when, in reality, a little more questioning might have led to a much better solution. I've just discovered that an ingredient in my makeup is the cause of my breakouts. She easily could have figured that out with a little questioning. Changing my makeup is much easier and more effective as a treatment plan than being on antibiotics for the rest of eternity. You know? Granted, if you are looking for a dermatologist to prescribe you antibiotics, retinols, Accutane, or any of the other medications every dermatologist ever is looking to prescribe you, have at it. She might be your girl. But there is no sympathy here, no real attempt at any kind of deeper understanding of problem. The stars come from no wait time and the sweet front desk girl, and because I think she really believes she's doing the right thing by prescribing patients the usual.
Dr. Blum is the best!!!
Might be the shortest office wait in NYC. She is consistently punctual and so nice. You never feel like you're being rushed out of the office, she takes her time to explain things and makes sure you're comfortable with all the info. Several friends of mine go to her and we all have the same opinion. Great doctor, great bedside manner and the office space is lovely.
Dr. Blum was efficient and very thorough during the appointment. I did not have to wait for the appointment and every staff member was courteous.
Very professional, clean office, efficient, and personable. I would recommend Dr. Blum.
Made me feel very comfortable and had great bedside manners.
I would recommend Dr. Blum to everyone!
Thorough but quick. A little lacking in bedside manner but seemed to know what she was talking about. Her staff was very nice and helpful as well.
Dr. Blum is super friendly and efficient. I also never had to wait.
Quick and a thorough visit. Dr. Blum is very nice and professional. Would recommend to my family and friends.
The best dermatologist! My family, friends and co-workers have been seeing her for years and everyone loves her!
Dr. Blum is extremely professional and has a wonderful bedside manner. I have referred at least 5 friends and colleagues to her and followed her from her previous practice. Her staff is also top-notch: you will be seen promptly and be treated with the utmost courtesy. She is one of my favorite doctors of all time. ;)
She was great - very thorough. Explained all options and recommended what would be best for me. All in all I was satisfied with her unlike my recent experiences with other dermatologists who didn't seem to really give a s***.
Extremely friendly, thorough, and knowledgeable. Explained everything she was doing--will definitely be returning and recommending.
Very thorough, comforting, and professional doctor!
Easy to talk to. Great at answering questions. Efficient, but not rushed visit.
She is great! Takes her time, is smart and really knows her stuff. My favorite dermatologist I have seen in NYC.
She's smart and honest. She's also warm and friendly. She cuts to the chase and I trust her with my life.
pristine office, friendly staff, no wait time during lunch.
I've seen Dr. Blum twice now and was pleased after both visits. I've recommended her to several friends as well and everyone has liked her. No complaints!
I had a great visit. The front desk was friendly and I was seen right away. Once in her office, Dr. Blum listened to my concerns, was informative and thorough. The entire experience was positive and I was out the door in less than 30 minutes.
She took her time in fully explaining and educating me about my condition and various medications and side effects, extremely helpful and enlightening. I never felt rushed. Her and her staff were personable and professional.
She actually wiped off my makeup to see the troubles I was having underneath, which my previous derm never bothered to do. She was thorough with explaining how to use the medications. Overall, great experience.
I used to go to a different dermatologist. Without question, every visit - i would wait AT least 30 minutes, usually 45 minutes - 1 hour. I didn't wait at ALL for Dr. Blum. She was very nice, has great bedside manner and was very knowledgeable. Unlike my other dermatologist, she actually measured my questionable mole, and asked me to come back in for a follow-up, just to make sure that it didn't change. I can safely say that I have found my new dermatologist - I will not be going back to the other doctor.
Yes. Dr. Blum's practice is very clean, efficient, and Dr. Blum's bedside manner is pleasant and professional. The office is very conveniently located in midtown near all major transportation.
I found Dr Blum here on ZD. Looking for a new derm in the neighborhood. Nice, small office. Check-in was okay. The receptionist is a bit rough. Assistant was better. Short visit. Seemed thorough and listened to questions I had. Relatively smooth appointment without any surprises.
Really took the time to answer all my questions, without making me feel rushed. Very thorough, knowledgeable, and efficient. Really clean waiting room, too, and no unnecessary wait times!
Really excellent doctor - was very impressed. Very knowledgeable, competent, highly recommended.
Dr. Blum is as good as they get.. Feel very confident I've found an outstanding dermatologist for the foreseeable future. Thank you!
Felt rushed, felt as though my problem wasn't worth a visit. I was sent a bill for a test but never got the test results. Failed to explain the prescription properly or clearly. Wouldn't recommend which is a shame considering the rest of the reviews are great.
Dr. Blum is very kind and professional.
Very quick and through; she explained everything very clearly and was great about answering all of my questions.
Dr. Blum was personable, attentive, and friendly. Her staff were courteous, and her office clean and neat. I only waited a few minutes before Dr. Blum saw me, and I thought she did a great job. I would recommend Dr. Blum to other patients looking for a good dermatologist.
Dr. Blum is the best. She possesses a rare combination of excellent professional and personal skills.
Everytime I go to Dr. Blum I never have to wait long and I'm in and out in 20 min. She is very thorough and explains everything.. Shes an amazing doctor. I recommend her to everyone!
I've been struggling with acne since I was thirteen. This is the first time in my life where I feel confident going to work without make up on. My skin looks incredible. After many failed attempts at different solutions and seeing many different doctors, this is the first time I've really felt like the treatment plan has been successful. Doctor Blum took the time to really listen to my concerns and my treatment goals. She also brainstormed modifications to the treatment plan to accommodate for my spending limits. Unlike other doctors who have prescribed the same medications even after I've directly told them it hasn't worked for me before, Doctor Blum really treated our meeting as collaborative and included my thoughts in the planning process.
Very accurate, thoughtful, and easy to talk to.
Great experience! Very professional, friendly, efficient.
Dr. Blum is a great doctor. She is highly knowledgable, professional and friendly. She also took the time to educate me about skin care and cancer prevention. Her office staff is very friendly and the office is very clean. I highly recommend Dr. Blum as a dermatologist.
Very professional, friendly, and helpful. The office was clean and the receptionist was fast and polite. Definitely recommend!
Very thorough skin screen and very approachable. Really listened to all of my questions. Highly recommend.
Dr. Blum is an excellent physician: knowledgeable, professional, thorough with a warm personal presence - highly recommended!
Very pleased! I followed Dr. Blum to her new office.
I love Dr. Blum she's amazing! I recommend her to everyone!
She was sympathetic, carefully explained everything she was doing did. Great bedside manner, personable and sympathetic. She gave me a full body check and was very thorough.
I thought she was very professional and thorough. Answered all my questions and made sure I had nothing more to discuss before the appointment ended.
Dr. Blum is very professional and knowledgeable. I was very pleased with my consultation.
Very friendly and inviting office setting. The receptionist was very nice and professional. Dr. Blum is great. My husband and I used to see her at another office before she left. We were very happy when we found her again!
Fantastic bedside manner and very knowledgeable.
Quick, comprehensive care. Very personable and honest.
Dr. Blum is wonderful. I highly recommend her.
Not my first time, and definitely not my last. Dr. Blum is the most gentle, knowledgable and kind doctor.
She was great -- extremely knowledgeable and to the point. She also took the time to listen to my needs and concerns. Highly recommend her. Please note that the only reason she did take me "right away" is because I showed up an hour prior to my scheduled time. Even then, she took me fairly quickly.
This is my 4th visit. I am pleased with Dr. Blum. Her receptionist is very nice and professional. Dr. Blum is pleasant, communicates well and really talks to you and asks if you have any questions. I finally found a dermatologist that I can go to.
Dr. Blum is spectacular!
I've been seeing Dr. Blum for a few years. She is always punctual, give a lot of information and has a really great way about how she approaches her patients. I always feel 100% comfortable in her office.
A+, perfect visit.
Great experience. She was efficient but a good listener. I appreciated her honesty in answering my questions. Will definitely go back.
She is always wonderful. Prompt, precise, friendly and knowledgable. The office is immaculate.
She is by far the best dermatologist and doctor I've seen. She makes you feel so comfortable and at ease. Answeres all questions with such knowledge and honesty. I always feel great after visiting wih her. Hands down the best doctor ;))!!!
Dr. Blum is attentive and thorough. She answered all my questions, explained every procedure she did, and talked about why she chose to prescribe the medications she did. I left the appointment feeling informed and confident. Beyond her medical attention, which was far superior to any I've received in New York, Dr. Blum made me feel comfortable talking about my skin issues, usually an embarrassing topic. I highly recommend her.
The visit was extremely rushed, which makes me question her thoroughness and competence.
Dr. Blum was amazing! I came in really stressed out and left feeling confident in all the steps she gave me and I felt like she took the time to really listen to what I had to say.
Dr. Blum is a thorough, excellent doctor who took time to listen, evaluate my problem, rule out potential diagnoses, and explain the long-term course of action. Highly recommend.
Shes great: lovely office, friendly staff, never feels rushed.
The office is a relaxed efficient environment. Doctor Blum is an excellent communicator.
Dr. Blum was incredible! She was very knowledgeable, cared about my issues, and had plenty of options and knew exactly what to prescribe me to clear the issue up. And I really like that she insisted on a follow-up!
Very professional on all levels.
Attentive, professional physician, beautiful office. Highly recommended.
Dr. Blum was courteous and efficient. She took time to get to know me but was quick and efficient with her diagnosis.
Dr. Blum was excellent!
Excellent, did a great job. Even helped prevent scarring.
Professional and Knowledgable. Prompt and fast.
Clean, nice office. Dr. Blum is very friendly, personable and explains things clearly. The receptionist is also very pleasant. I will be going back.
Dr. Blum was fantastic -listened to me needs, explained what was covered by insurance and what wasn't and was generally very attentive to me and my specific issues!
Dr. Blum was thorough, but efficient. She listened to my questions and explained everything she recommended and why. This was my first visit, but I have high hopes I will see improvement to my skin problems based on her recommendations.
Dr. Blum is fantastic. Have seen her for routine medical and cosmetic procedures. Very convenient office in midtown and never have to wait.
She is great at what she does, and how she does it. A "10".
Very thorough, sweet and easy to talk to. Don't wear makeup to your appointment! haha
Very thorough, very pleasant!
Dr. Blum was very friendly, personable and took time to explain everything. The woman at the front desk was also very nice. There was very little wait time and I would highly recommend.
Dr. Blum is very through and professional. She is easy to speak to and listens well. She is able to quickly diagnose and address any issues with practical answers and advice. She is the first dermatologist who has been able to convince me to stop indoor tanning. The office is in a very convenient location, one block from Columbus circle.
Dr. Blum's rfecommendation resulted in immediate easing of my difficulty. I would say my visit was highly successful.
Fast, efficient, addressed my concerns.
Dr.Blum and her receptionist were great. The office is clean and easy to locate. It was a really painless appointment and she answered all of my questions and then some. I would definitely recommend her if you have some issues with your skin.
I've been struggling with adult acne for a while. It was hopeless. Mostly because I never wanted to take oral medication. However, Dr. Blum was amazing and followed my wishes and (though it was a slow process without medication) I saw tremendous results and my skin is smooth, yes SMOOTH! It's great. I'm ecstatic.
Great physician, wonderful receptionist. Office was nice and clean, well run. Got right to the point and gave clear explanations of what the possible problem was. Felt reassured and comforted and confident in the information provided. Would recommend to a friend.
Dr. Blun seems very knowledgable, practical, and honest. She will tell you if she thinks a procedure or treatment isn't necessary.
Dr. Blum is one of the most best doctors I have. She listens carefully, explains the condition and is extremely empathetic. And she really cares - I went in for a postpartum skin issue for myself and knowing that I have kids and the winter months are dry in NY, she voluntarily went above and beyond giving me a moisturizer sample that was good for little kids skin.
Excellent experience with Dr. Blum. Was seen very quickly. She was very thorough yet efficient and did not push any products. Highly recommend her!
It was my first visit, and Dr. Blum was very good an explaining what to look out for and I felt like I had a thorough screening.
Dr. Blum was knowledgeable and spend a lot of time with me, discussing my needs and concerns. As a first time patient, I was very pleased!
As a returning patient from Dr. Blum's previous practice, I have nothing but good things to say about her! I had bad acne since the age of 13 and have tried everything under the sun from various different dermatologists. Dr. Blum is very knowledgable and professional, but also kind and personable. She recommend a treatment program specific to my skin needs--and the results were great. After having acne for 10+ years (and at the risk of sounding like an infomercial), I am thrilled to say that my skin has never looked better.
She is a very nice, caring and personable doctor.
Took time to learn about my condition and set the expectations correctly.
I went to Dr. Blum for issues with acne. It was my first time seeing her and I found her to be knowledgeable, sincere, and a good listener. During my consultation Dr. Blum listened attentively to my concerns and gave her honest feedback - which is reassuring. She spoke to me about all treatment options, managed my expectations accordingly, and made sure to include me in the decisions around my healthcare. I didn't feel rushed out of her office which is a major plus! The only part that left me with a sour taste was when she tried selling me topical products that were "exclusive" to her office. The relationship between doctor-patient was suddenly transformed into seller-buyer and took me out of my comfort zone. Aside from this the rest of the experience was enjoyable. Also, it has been two weeks since I've seen her and the medications prescribed to me has been been showing promising results - which further comforts me in her medical expertise. I still do not feel comfortable buying her "exclusive" products but I may give them a try if all else fails.
Dr. Blum was very professional and efficient, but also caring. She made me feel more at ease even though I was very self conscious about my issue - that was important.
Very friendly and professional. Also, she gave me different treatment options which I appreciated.
I have been to Dr. Blum a few times now and have never had to wait more than 5 minutes- unheard of! I've had a few skin issues and she has always been great in resolving them. I would highly recommend her!
Exceptional bedside manner. Beautiful offices. I will be back.
Dr. Blum was very professional and great bedside manner. Never pressured me for any procedures. Listened well to my concerns and met them.
Good visit. Thanks for making it easy
Dr Blum is very thorough, explains everything in terms you can understand and is very personable.
Very sweet. Office is quite nice, as is receptionist. Dr. Blum gave me some good advice for my skin. Wait time for second appt was ~15 mins. No wait for the first.
Beautiful office, knowledgable and personable doctor, efficient and friendly staff.
I was a returning patient from her former practice. Dr. Blum is exceptionally thorough, insightful, caring and kind. Her staff is personable and efficient--always a reflection on the doctor on how they run the practice. If there were 6 stars available, I'd post that score for Dr. Blum
I went to this appointment with a list of several concerns I wanted to discuss (one of which was adult acne). I was incredibly disappointed when Dr. Blum spent all of 2 minutes discussing with me and basically shoved me out the door with a handful of samples. She didn't ask a single question to find out the root cause of my breakouts. How can you possibly treat someone when you don't know what's causing his or her condition?! Needless to say, I will be looking for a different dermatologist. On a positive note, Siri, the receptionist, was great.
Thorough, smart, engaged. She cares
Doc Blum is great. Quickly diagnosed & cured a problem I had with the skin at the corners of my mouth that I suffered with for years and that other docs could not help, but now it's gone. Extremely thorough initial overall examination. She is highly skilled and knowledgable...extremely professional. Marty Vidnovic
Dr. Blum was extremely professional and has a wonderful bedside manner. I was nervous to have a full skin/mole check and she was really great and very kind. I will go back for any dermatology needs I may have in the future.
Loved her! Really knowledgeable
Dr. Blum is kind, attentive, and fast! I was seen on time and she was helpful about being sure I could get the medication I need.
Very impressed with Dr. Blum - a true professional.
She never overbooks. She is the most efficient doctor ever!
Amazing and very honest. Also, gorgeous. She looks like she is 22. I went to her for acne issues rather than aging issues, but once that happens I'll know who to call....
Efficient, but thorough, with a great bedside manner
I used to see Dr. Blum at her old practice on the east side and when she left, I googled her for weeks until I learned where her new practice would be. That's how much I like her.
She took the time to answer my questions and inform me. She also seemed like she really cared because she expressed that she wanted to make sure my skin problem would be resolved, rather than just throwing prescriptions at me and shuffling me out the door.
I'd been a previous patient of Dr Blum's, and loved her, so decided to visit at the new office. The new office is beautiful, and very serene...a lovely place to go for a doctor's appointment!
she was professional and friendly on the same time. I recommend her very much.
Dr. Blum is great! She takes her time to listen to your concerns and is extremely professional. If you need to see a dermatologist you need to see Dr. Blum.
Very friendly and professional!
Great in every way...an extremely professional, thorough, knowledgeable, and skilled physician.
Awesome doctor. Was helpful, quick and friendly.
Was extremely pleased and satisfied with the visit, treatment and advice. I highly tecommend Dr . blum.
She was very professional and knowledgeable. Her staff was efficient, and the visit was quick and painless.
She's so caring, kind, and incredibly attentive. I'll never go anywhere else!
She is a very professional and kind doctor.
I had a great first experience at the dermatologist thanks to Dr. Blum. She very quickly assessed my problem, explained the various medications and then made her recommendation. She was thoughtful and pleasant as was her staff.
Very professional, efficient and knowledgable.
Amazing! Beautiful office, lovely staff and Dr. Blum is tremendous! She offers real advice and empathetic perspective.. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Blum is very professional. The appointment was scheduled and went without a hitch. It was a great visit. I definitely would recommend her.
Dr. Blum is wonderful, thorough and efficient--but not rushed. I had a proceedure done at her office and was really pleased with the results. Her office is clean, intimate and lovely, and I'm happy to have (finally) found a great skin doc in NYC.
Nice office, was seen quickly, and Dr. Blum is very friendly and efficient (but open to questions).
Dr. Blum is great. She really listens to your concerns and offers alternate methods of treatment if you are not on board with the orignal suggestion. After your first visit she is very flexible and accomadating when needing to schedule emergency appointments. I would recommend to anyone!
Robin - I mean, Dr. Blum - is what we hope any doctor, or any service provider, will be. She listened and explained, recognized my needs and concerns, and responded appropriately. Personable yet professional. She did some "work", which has achieved exactly what I wanted. Office is immaculate, and Siri, at the front desk, is great too.
She's great - warm, thorough, knowledgeable!
She's the best
I had a great experience with her - she answered all my questions thoroughly. The office is super modern and clean. No waiting time! The best doctor's office experience.
She is extremely nice and explains everything thoroughly.
I highly recommend Dr. Blum. She is very thorough and professional. She also seems to care. She listens closely and takes time to educate.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Baum and she was great--very thorough and friendly, and she didn't keep me waiting long, nor did I feel rushed during the appointment. Her staff was very professional and pleasant as well.
The office is nice. Staff is helpful. Efficient appointments. Dr Blum, She was great! So glad I tried this service. I wasn't steered wrong. Wonderful doctor. Very smart, efficient, professional, thorough. Highly recommended
Excellent bedside manner, very personable and knowledgeable. Will recommend her to friends and family.
Doctor Blum is a great doctor. I have been going to her for years. I am an extremely nervous patient and visiting certain docs paralyzes me with fear. Dr. Blum is always patient and caring and understanding of my own personal challenges. She's also straightforward and professional and almost never do I have to wait for an appointment. I have bad skin from time to time and she worked to get me absolutely clear for my wedding. Highly recommend her.
She's currently renting space in a larger practice while her offices are renovated, so if you go in the near future don't be put off by the crowded waiting room and people who look like they've been waiting forever. They may be-- but not for Dr. Blum, who is prompt and only kept me waiting 15 minutes, even as a new patient with paperwork to be filled out. Fantastic personality, thorough, super-smart and took plenty of time to answer all of my questions and was truly helpful. Felt I was in good hands; I will be back.
Excellent doctor, spent time to answer all my questions. Made me feel comfortable during a full body mole scan. Great bedside manner, knowledgeable and able/willing to help with any issues, but didn't push cosmetic procedures.
I went to see Robin on a saturday morning; couldn't have been more helpful, calming, or professional. Following up with her in 4-6 with the regimen she suggested. Highly recommended!
Excellent visit. Professional. Thorough and Informative. Good bedside manner. And she's very cute too!
Extremely knowledgeable and passionate about "skin." Considers all factors that may be effecting your condition. Very direct-- straight to the point. Maybe a little bit judgmental, however I think this is very common in NYC physicians. This was my first time with Dr. Blum and I will be returning. My only complaint is that they never called me with my test results and I eventually had to call about a month later, in which is still took awhile for them to dig them up (called me back a week later). Still-- highly recommended!
I didn't think it was possible for a doctor to be both thorough and efficient until I met Dr. Blum.
Excellent very knowlegeable and helpful.
Extremely professional, very attentive, considerate and informed. Overall, a great physician!
She was great!
Great bedside manner, feel like she really listened to me. Am glad to have found a good dermatologist.
Good advice + educational. highly recommended.
She was fantastic!
Staff very quick and responsive-- I left a vm and boom-boom-boom; things were done within a business day. Extremely impressed. They obviously take pride in doing a good job.
She was really kind and informative. Made me feel comfortable for an all body scan.
Had a first visit with Dr. Blum today to get an opinion on a red mark that has developed near my nose. There was a very short wait as a previous patient was late, but I actually wouldn't have noticed if they hadn't apologized nicely a number of times. The admin was quick and talkative. I saw the doctor relatively quickly. Once in a patient room, the doctor was attentive and clear and nothing felt rushed. I'd recommend her to anyone.
Very attentive and personable. I feel like I finally have a dermatologist I can trust. Will schedule a follow up visit soon!
Caring and excellent physician. Gave adequate time to address questions and explore possible solutions to our problems.
She is very helpful and cares about her patients.
What can I say?! She's the best!
Dr. Blum was very knowledgeable, warm and quick. I would definitely recommend her to others.
Dr. Blum was very friendly and informative and she addressed all my questions. My only negative comment is that she seemed very rushed. I wish she had taken a little more time on my body scan and the whole appointment in general.
She was fine, but not super thorough or interested in concerns I had. Maybe it was just me, but it felt rushed.
Great visit. Very thorough exam. Dr spent time explaining everything to me. I would highly recommend her.
Excellent doctor who listens to your concerns, explains your options, gives you time to think and decide what course of action to take and provides recommendations. Wait time are very short as they do not overbook their appointments. I would recommend this Dr. Blum to everyone who's looking for a dermatologist.
Highly recommend. Attentive, informative and sympathetic to my hormonal acne. Prescribed an oral medication which seems to be working. My follow up visit is already scheduled.
I was impressed at how efficient she was. I went in, had a through melanoma screening, she did a (painless) biopsy, answered some of my skin care questions, and I was out. Very friendly office too!
Dr. Blum was really approachable and efficient, yet thorough! I really liked her and would recommend.
Love, love, loved Dr. Blum. I highly recommend her to everyone.
Great Doctor and amazing person.
Dr. Blum is a consummate professional. Her office is clean, efficient, and friendly. I have been a patient of Dr. Blum for about 4 years, and she has consistently proven to be an exceptionally intelligent and highly skilled doctor with a trustworthy disposition.
The appointment was short and sweet - just how I like it. No wait, close to Columbus Circle (and my office!).
Dr. Blum was very thorough, efficient, personable and professional!
I love her!
very warm and personable.
great advice! gave coupon on prescription items even with having insurance coverage.
Very professional. Very nice. Good bedside manner. Very thorough. Nothing about her I did not like.
Dr. Blum was great! She was extremely though, informative and knowledgeable. I have already recommended her to co-workers and family members.
She's great -- professional, personable, and I was in and out in 30 minutes!
Personable, good educator and motivator (re sunscreen) and projects thorough competence
She was very thorough, listened to what i had to say, and was able to recommend a few different courses of treatment. Dr Blum was extremely approachable and made me feel very comfortable, which is not an easy thing to do when your sitting there in a paper gown. I would definitely recommend her.
Dr.Blum is wonderful. I was petrified bc this was my first screening and I am 36 w/ lots of moles. But Dr.Blum's demeanor calmed me immeadiately. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!!
Dr. Blum is very knowledgeable and professional. She narrows in on the problem and provides choices for the patient. I never felt rushed and had a great experience with this doctor. Would highly recommend and definitely come back in the future.
Dr. Blum was very knowledgable and made me feel very comfortable. She explained things so that I could understand, and also gave me options that made me feel most comfortable and that would work best. I can understand why other reviewers said they may have felt rushed-she does things very quickly but does not make you feel like she will not give you time or that there is a lack of quality. I think it is more her personality. But still highly recommended and will continue to see her!
Quick, Professional, Painless, great location, highly recommended.
I've been to many dermatologists in the city she is by far the best one I've seen. Very thorough, and clearly cares about the patient.
Very nice, smart and attractive professional doctor.
Dr. Blum was very courteous and knowledgable. I went in for a scar removal consultation. Instead of enforcing unnecessary procedures, Dr. Blum informed me of all the scar removal options out there, many of which her office did not provide. I found her to be a very sensible doctor with the patients satisfaction as a main priority.
Dr. Blum is highly professional. She is very kind and patient, answered all o my questions (and I had a lot!) and most important helped with my situation after few doctors could not. Thank you Dr Blum!!
Lovely, warm, knowledgable, friendly... explained things in "normal talk" was patient. VERY happy!!! (I should also point out that I waited because I showed up 15 minutes late and they took another patient ahead of me!)
Dr. Blum answered all of my questions, gave me lots of information and did not rush the appointment. She was honest and helpful and I would definitely recommend her to a friend.
Hands down the best Dermatologist in NYC. Caring, Smart, and excellent at her skill.
Dr. Blum was pleasant, efficient, addressed my concerns and made sure that all my questions were answered to my satisfaction.
Dr. Blum was AWESOME! Incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. She was able to help me very quickly and told me right away how to treat my rash. She even called me a few days later to make sure the cream was working, I've never had a doctor do that before. Highly recommended!
Dr. Blum has improved my face in just 6 short weeks!
Dr. Blum was friendly, thorough, and efficient. The only annoying thing was trying to negotiate the referral needed from my PCP to her office. I had to keep calling back because they didn't give me the right ID number for my insurance system. However, that's not really Dr. Blum's fault, it's the insanity of insurance.
I like that Dr. Blum is personable and didn't push product or procedures. In fact, she talked about easy drug store finds that do a great job.
Dr. Blum was very professional, however I felt that she was slightly rushed and did my exam very quickly. I would still recommend her.
Was very nice and thorough. Provided good education about my condition and the treatments she prescribed.
I was a little nervous to see Dr. Blum after reading some of the reviews on ZocDoc. I thought she was fantastic, though. I have zero complaints. She was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I felt very comfortable the entire time.
She was nice but the appointment felt a bit rushed.
I thought Dr. Blum was very professional and thorough. I ended up having to have a biopsy but she put me at ease and explained what she was going to do. I was really glad to have found her through the website.
Dr. Blum is very careful not to push anything on her patients which I greatly appreciated. She goes over all of your options and was kind.
Quick but thorough.
Dr. Blum was very professional, very informative and very real. By that I mean she was not pushy about cosmetic procedures, had real informed knowledge to impart for all my questions with a down-to-earth demeanor I appreciated. I also liked that she seemed to have budget in mind. I liked her and I'll continue to use her as my derm.
Good. Very helpful.
Great communicator, very friendly. And was seen at the exact moment of my appointment time. Highly recommend
She was kind and understanding and knew exactly what she was going to do to help me. She also chatted about my interests with me. She spent a lot more time with me than most doctors.
Dr. Blum was very nice,made me feel comfortable and she thoroughly checked my skin and scalp. I would recommend her.
She did a through exam and answered all my questions, which was great.
I had a great experience with Dr. Blum. When I arrived for my appointment I was greeted and given the standard first time patient paper work to complete. Once finished I was seen right away.Dr. Blum was very personable and clear in her diagnosis and answered all my questions. Would definitely go back.
Dr.Blum was great! There was hardly any wait time and she was pleasant, professional, thorough and patient/knowledgeable in answering all my questions.
Great experience. I was ushered in with zero wait, Dr. Blum answered all of my questions painfully and then allowed me some choice as to how we would proceed. I highly recommend.
I had a very good experience at my appointment. As soon as I filled out my paperwork, I was taken right in and seen promptly by Dr. Blum. She was very friendly, asked me lots of questions about my symptoms, did a quick examination of my skin, and even gave me options as to how I can treat my problem with any possible side effects each medicine might cause. I've been to other dermatologists in the past and have always felt they would try to push lots of medicines on me, and rush me out the door for the next patient to come. I didn't feel this way at all here. I would definitely recommend going here.
Great doctor - friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend her to a friend.
Dr. Blum is amazing. She completely understood all my concerns and worked with me to create a better cleansing regimen for my face. Highly recommend.
