My experience has been inconsistent. Sometimes I have great experiences with Dr and sometimes not so much. Overall, the dr are smart and talented. However, It's so big I feel the Drs and even the nurses are inaccessible. I am always leaving messages with a receptionist who tells me it may take 2 days to call me back.Sometimes mask wearing was taken seriously and other times I felt uncomfortable there because staff didn't wear a mask when talking to me. Overall, if someone was getting a major surgery or only had to see cardiology 1x/yr I'd probably recommend Bluhm, but if someone needed ongoing continuous care I'd probably suggest they look for a smaller practice that is more personable.
