I should have done this post sooner.
A friend needed a good foot surgeon and I recommended Dr. Blume. He operated on both my feet a few years ago.
Great surgeon, kind and compassionate, His office staff are top notch! Highly recommend him.
I had two fusions done, one in Feb and one in August. I had essentially no pain after the surgeries and my recovery was easy, although long.
But there has been no unforeseen results and I'm thrilled with the surgeries.
I cannot give Dr. Blume higher praise than this. He's a superb doctor.
Dr Blume saved my leg! I was in a motorcycle accident and Dr Blume was recommended by a Doctor my wife had called just after my accident. The on Duty surgeon told me he was most likely going to amputate at the knee.
Dr Blume was out of state but when he was sent pictures of my crushed foot he knew if he didn't do the surgery I would lose the leg. At 2:30 am he got into his car drove to Ct and saved my leg !
The on duty surgeon asked him if he could sit in and learn from him!
He is by far the best!
As the season to be thankful fast approached, I wanted to acknowledge the excellent care given to me over the past several months . Please enjoy these goodies as a token of my heartfelt appreciate. Enjoy!
