SHC Patient, Oct 2015

This dr. was phenomenal, very attentive, very compassionate, very understanding, very intelligent on subjects I questioned and very thorough. I came worried and anxious about ovarian mass with family hx of ovarian cancer. Left with peace of mind in knowing it was a normal cyst.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Blumenthal wanted to rush to an invasive treatment option, but finally consulted a colleague and agreed to the safer and better treatment plan he recommended.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Dr. Blumenthal was very friendly, yet professional & extremely thorough. He took the time to investigate & discovered a medical issue that was over booked by a previous physician & a different medical group.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

I loved his approach with my questions he'd respond "an excellent question." Very affirming.
