Unfortunately I was the victim of a gunshot wound to my face. Fortunately Dr. Blum was called to treat me. After 3 surgeries I am now back to normal. What a fabulous job he did. He was compassionate, understanding, and spent a greet deal of time explainig things to me. The results couldn't be better. When I went to his office after I got out of the hospital his staff handled everything for me. They billed my insurance, worked out a payment plan for the portion of the bill that my insurance did not pay. The staff couldn't of been better and nicer. Dr. Blum'a ability, bed side manner and Dr. Blum's staff helped me get through a terrible ordeal. THank you Dr. Blum

I was referred to Dr Blum for consulting a biopsy was recommended. He personally told me it was covered by my insurance, but on the day of the biopsy I was told it was NOT covered would have to pay $1400. When I explained to the office personnel that Dr. Blum told me it was covered, she said the doctor does not discuss insurance matters and SHE was the only one to discuss payment issues…even though she said nothing when scheduling my appointment. I lost a day of work and was not even offered an apology. Afterward, I was billed for the "balance" of the initial consultation, even though Blue Cross informed both me and Dr. Blum's office that I was not responsible to pay. They continued to bill me for 4 months, not returning my calls, and finally responding to my fax by threatening to charge me with attorney and collection fees if I did not pay. Blue Cross finally worked it out after I filed a grievance, and I did not have to pay. He may be a good doctor, but I was never able to find out.

I searched extensivly for the correct Doctor for my Orthognathic Surgery. Finally I found Dr. Blum. What a fabulous Doctor. From the first appointment to the surgery and then the after care. Everything was perfect. The staff was great. They handled all of the insurance without a glitch. I highly recommend Dr. Blum and his staff

DR.BLUM AND STAFF ARE UNKNOWLEDGABLE REGARDING INSURANCE. HE CHARGED ME $541 FOR COVERED ITEM. I SHOULD HAVE ONLY PAID $80 ($50 FOR EXTRACTION AND $30 CO PAY FOR ANESTHSIA) I AM REQUESTING A REFUND OF $461 FROM DR.BLUM. I WILL LET EVERYONE KNOW IF HE RESPONDS TO MY REQUEST AS SOON AS HE RESPONDS TO ME. AT THIS POINT I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE BASED ON HIS LACK OF KNOWLEDGE OF INSURANCE AND/OR LYING TO ME STATING MY INSURANCE DID NOT COVER MY WORK.

I broke my mandible last month. I went to two other Oral Surgeons who refused to treat me. I finally went to Dr. Blum who could not have been more helpful or nicer. He repaired my broken mandible the next day. The surgery went without any problems and afterward, to this day I have not had any problems. Everything has healed perfectly. I would highly recommend him.

Was quoted a cost of $5,900.00 to have my son's jaw wired shut after an accident. I asked if this $5,900.00 was for everything and was told yes by the office manager. When it came time to have the wires removed I was advised that it would be an additional $5,000.00 to have the wires removed. Before they do anything to your mouth "GET IT IN WRITING" or you will be sorry. We went to a general dentist and paid $200.00 to have the wires removed. $200.00 compared to $5,000.00 what a difference. I was angry at the bait and switch...buyer beware..
