Ratings for Dr. Robert J. Bloomberg
A word of awareness: Dr Bloomberg's office in Tempe AZ will not accept regularly accepted medical insurance if you are in a car wreck. Basically they deny care unless you have a claim number or cash up front for entire costs usually covered by my medical insurance with copay. Don't bother going to them. Find a Dr that will still provide care for medical insurance even if you are in a wreck. Which is obviously when you need it most.
Yes you can wait in the office for a visit, but Dr Bloomberg spends time with his patients. He was the only doctor who listened to me and ordered tests accordingly. Turns out I have a rare disorder but all other doctors pretty much told me I was a hypochondriac. I have been going to Dr Bloomberg for 14 years now and I hope he does not retire soon!
I saw Dr Bloomberg for the first time for a physical. He didn't even do EKG. He never called me bout my test results so I thought everything was fine. One day I was reviewing my health insurance on line. It said I was diagnosed with diabetes. I had no idea . On top of this the wait to see him was over 1 hr and I hear that is normal. The staff is rude doesn't make you feel wanted. They treat you like they are doing you a favor. Dr Bloomberg doesn't seem to care how is staff treats his patients. I heard this from other people in the waiting room when I was waiting. I will never go back.
The wait time to see Dr. Bloomberg is HORRENDOUS! I always make my appointment first thing in the morning, and I still wait 1.5 = 2 hours!! I know he is in the office as I see and hear him! He is a great doctor, but the wait times are just not worth it.
Dr Bloomberg runs consistently 1.5 - 2 HOURS behind schedule. At first I thought it was due to an emergency earlier in the day but I have discovered he purposely schedules this kind of wait-time. The staff can be defensive when asked about the wait, but they do try to be friendly and helpful. When you finally get to see the doctor he spends as much time with you as you need, but by the time he reaches me I'm fuming because of the long wait which leads to an unproductive office visit.
i rated the staff in the middle because they are what they are,just about what you would normally encounter in any other dr. offices.i rated punctual pretty high because he is punctual unless he has an emergency call elsewhere.i rated helpfulness and knowledge high because, in my opinion he is the best dr. i have ever known and i have known quite a few !
Due to this doctor switching my elderly dads medication, he was launched into a series of psychotic episodes, hospitalization, dehydration, toxic levels of medications and death with in a 3 month period. My dad had asked to NOT take the change of meds. This doctor called to tell me he had made a mistake in changing the meds. That is not sufficient for avoiding mal practice.
