Very professional with minimal waiting time. She remembers her patients, it's not like a medical factory where they see you for five minutes and have no recollection of who you are and why you are seeking treatment. Both she and thestaff are very friendly and make this as pleasant an experience as going to the Dr. can be.

I thought Dr. Blum was disinterested and unprofessional during my appointment. She clearly had little interest in examining me and showed little care for the concerns that I raised. I would absolutely never recommend her nor will I return toher practice. It was a waste of time for me to have visited her office.

She is probably best for cosmetic dermatology. I appeciate her ability to calm nerves and ease tension. She will not embarrass you or make you uncomfortable, she is great at just getting to the point and won't dwindle on the couplespots you have on your face when you did not come in to talk about that.

The office is very nice and clean and modern. I really liked everything except the doctors bedside manner. It was clear she was monologuing the same things she’s said a thousand times before, and only touched on my concerns with aquick sentence or two. I thought maybe I was imagining things, but then when I walked out of my room, I saw the doctor move quickly to close her office door before we made eye contact. I’m sure she is very busy, but I felt like I was more of an appointment to get through instead of a patient.

I saw Dr. Blum for an annual skin screening. I've never had any specific problems, but like to go annually because you never know. Dr. Blum was very speedy which was good from a time management sense but not necessarily comfortingfrom a health perspective. I'd probably go back until I have reason not too, but just be sure to get all of your questions out at the beginning.

Great doctor who is honest and listens to all concerns. Front desk is also very nice to work with and very accommodating. I suffered from cystic acne for the last couple of years when entering my 30s and Dr. Blum wasable to clear up all the angry, red bumps from my face with a combination of topical meds as well as extractions and cortisone injections. Highly recommended!

Dr Blum did an outstandingly job of diagnosing my painful skin irrational problem. She was very pleasant and patient asking me many questions related to how and why I developed this relatively new very painful skin irration. I am very happyto say I am feeling much better now with Dr Blum's suggestion on the modification on a previous prescription medication along with Dr Blum's new topical ointment and new prescription. I live in New Orleans and only wish our city had such an excellent dermatologist! New Yorker's you are fortunate to have Dr Blum!

Absolutely awful. I have seen Dr. Blum for many years however her bedside demeanor has become deplorable. She speaks to you and your previous (un-dermatological issues) in a condescending manner. Will not visit again. Completely disappointed. Wish her the best of luck in the future.
