Dr. Jeffrey H Bloom has the following 2 specialties
- Sports Medicine
A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.
It is the responsibility of sports medicine specialist to clear athletes to return to the playing field when they are deemed fit. These doctors also advise athletes on how to avoid injury through proper care of their bodies while training.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Jeffrey H Bloom - Posted on October 30th, 2013
I am extremely happy that I inherited Dr. Jeffrey Bloom approximately 13 years ago. Dr. Bloom never leaves a stone unturned going back through patient history each visit and following up to present day. Dr. Bloom always gives time to his patients in a caring manner, giving his advice freely.. I have had some situations whereby I was hospitalized, my husband too and Dr. Bloom was accurate in his diagnosis which saved my husband's life. I too was able to pull through my illness thanks to Dr. Bloom with his guidance, treatment and support. I trust him implicitly and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, competent and caring doctor. Dr. Bloom has a great holistic approach toward his patients. I certainly would vote for him to get the Patients' Choice Award again because of his dedication to his profession and patients. My family and myself hold him in high esteem.

"Dr" Bloom is an unprofessional business man that is clearly out for cash instead of providing proper health care.Instead of recommending lifestyle changes, he reaches for his prescription pad and tries to heavily medicate you. He most likely has some incentive from drug reps!He erroneously bills your insurance so they won't cover preventative care visits. Then when you dispute the claims he sends you to collections, forcing you to pay or face a ding on your credit score. His staff is extremely rude and clueless. They lack basic common sense and the ability to multi task.
One of the good ones!
