Received good guidance.

6/24/2015

Dr. Bloomfeld has given me information about my condition that no other GI doctor has ever given me. I have been diagnosed with Crohn's Disease for 15 years and I have found more about issues concerning this disease from Dr. Bloomfeld than I have in the past 15 years from any other GI. It is nice to have a doctor that takes care ofor me the way he does. He is an excellent doctor who does his job with sincerity and expertise. I have no concerns about him in anyway.

6/22/2015

This was my first visit with Dr. Bloomfeld. He told me that he would try to get with a radiologist to look at my CT Scan from another hospital. He personally called me back within 5 hours of my appoint to let me know that this had been done and to talk about what they found. I was so impressed. There are not many doctors that take the time to call you personally.

6/9/2015

The doctor spent a lot of time talking to me to get information.

5/24/2015

Experience was entirely positive. Would highly recommend Dr. Bloomfeld and his staff.
