Ratings for Dr. Elana J. Bloom
My hematologist retired. I needed a new MD. I read about Dr. Bloom. I scheduled an appointment. The receptionist said she would be emailing me release paperwork. Weeks later, still no paperwork. I thought maybe she intended to send it just before the appointment. Today, I receive a call. The receptionist informs me that she has tried sending the paperwork multiple times but it bounces back. I told her i suspect she has the email address wrong. I was correct. She did. You would think that she was calling to clarify the email address, since she said she attempted to send at least 3 times, but, no! She is calling to cancel me for my first ever appointment. She said the doctor is going out of town and she would reschedule me. Unfortunately, I just skipped my infusion. One of my labs was a little high, so the staff at my old MD office also thought it was a good idea to wait until i see the new MD to ask. After all, it was only a difference of 8 days between infusion and MD appt. Well, wonder where i will go now? Definitely a horrible first impression of this practice!
Dr. Bloom is an exceptionally knowledgeable doctor who specialies in hematology, oncology, and bone marrow transplantation. I saw her over a period of 2 years. Her treatment plans were extremely thorough. She always let me know where I stood and what was going on with my treatment. She had an outstanding bedside manner, always had a big smile, and always treated me as though I was a personal friend, and not just a patient. My only concern was the long waits in her office to see her, due to her ongoing, hospital-related duties, but I never regreted it, as she took a lot of time with every patient she saw.
