I am very confident that I get the best care available.
Dr. Bloomfeld is a wonderful provider who takes his time and does not rush the appointment. He takes the time to listen and answer my questions and always addresses all of my concerns.
*Dr. Bloomfeld explains things on a level I can understand.
Great doctor & staff.
He explained everything clearly & listened to me well.
Very good & pleasant.
Excellent provider, very knowledgeable in my history with Crohns!
*Dr. Bloomfield is always professional & caring and explain things in easy to understand ways.
Dr. Bloomfeld never rushes me during my visits. He takes great pains to make sure he understands my concerns, discuss workable treatments, and records this information to rely on for my next visit. I truly appreciate the time he spends with me, especially knowing he has a complex schedule. He also finds ways to see me 'outside' his regular schedule to accommodate my odd schedule. I rarely find a physician that will do this. I highly recommend Dr. Bloomfeld to others. Just wish he had more assistants or a scribe to help him with the EHR..... his time is better spent talking with me (patients), than having to navigate a complicated electronic medical record system.
No bedside manner, but I do believe he has lots of knowledge, but I just don't feel comfortable w/asking questions.
Excellent experience! I would have like more time to discuss food and nutrition for patients with Crohns.
