Dr. William Bloom, MD

Ophthalmologist

Professional statement

Dr. Bloom attended college at The University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated Cum Laude having majored in Biology. His interest in both human physiology and disease culminated in his earning an MD/PhD degree from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine/City University of New York in 1981. His PhD was in neurobiology, where he studied neural transmission at the cellular level. After completing his medical internship at the Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City, Dr. Bloom spent a year abroad doing a post-doctoral fellowship in the Department of Pathology at the University Hospital in Geneva, Switzerland. Realizing that he preferred spending more time with patients than with test tubes, and always having been fascinated by the complexity and beauty of the human visual system, Dr. Bloom entered the Ophthalmology Residency program at the Boston University Medical Center in 1983. He successfully completed his training in comprehensive ophthalmology, and became a Diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology in 1987.

Was NOT treated like a product on an assembly line, which is how I feel at doctors lately. Just hi, put a stamp, keep it moving. It was calm, quick and efficient.
