Made appointment for my daughter, He opened up another time period for us at 8Am on a Saturday because the time slot we requested was taken, pretty much straight forward, took the time to explain and listen to concerns and made us both feel at ease with his prognosis! He has a very nice home office, and you can tell that he is a Dr with much experience that cares about the progression of his patients!!! I will update this review as time moves on!!

I really liked Dr. Blumenfield. I feel hopeful for the first time in a very long time. He relates well and really listens while offering suggestions for treatment no other doctor has ever mentioned previously. I look forward to my next appointment.

I was very impressed by Dr. Blumenfeld. He was very thorough in assessing me and extremely knowledgeable about the medications used to treat people with my conditions. He seemed to genuinely listen to me, asked tons of questions about my background, and overall I left with the sense that he has my best interests at heart. He is not one of those psychiatrists who spends 5 minutes with you before handing you your prescriptions and sending you on your way. I only went to him for medications, but he also does talk therapy too if desired. Overall, I was very impressed and will definitely return! A good doctor is worth every penny.

The visit was odd. I was extremely uncomfortable with the fact that he works out of his home. He seemed offended that I asked the reason for this. The visit was ok but I will not be going back.
