Great experience!

The office setting is a little lackluster, but it hides a real gem of a guy. Dr. Blachman was attentive, listened well and understood what I was saying. He was also informative, which made me very comfortable, and very personable. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!

Condescending and so rude

I've never written a review for a doctor, but after taking my father, who has Parkinson's , to see Dr. Blachman, I looked him up and saw all of these awful reviews. What everyone writes is true. He only wants to talk about himself. Simply because I was advocating for my father, he asked me incredibly rudely what I did for a job (who cares!?) and when I told him, he rolled his eyes at me and laughed at my profession. When I asked how we can best care for my 6'2" father, he said, "Just make sure he doesn't fall." Are you kidding? Should we walk behind him with a pillow and hope for the best? When my mother asked for alternative treatment options, Dr. Blachman said, "I don't know anything about that" and waved her off. We will not be continuing treatment with this poor excuse for a doctor. I've never seen such atrocious bedside manner.

Needs to be investigated - Lies, Rude, Unprofessional

This so called doctor needs to be investigated for his methods of testing, rudeness and insulting behavior. He is a paid insurance doctor, who challenged every word I said and twisted the report with untruths. He told me I was faking in so many words. When he did the neuro testing, I was unsteady on my feet. I kept falling to the left, then he had me close my eyes and I fell backwards and hit his xray white board. He never apologized nor did he note it in his report. Instead he said nothing was wrong in his report, except to make it look like I was the liar, when in fact it was he. I left his office upset and I have NEVER met a more unprofessional doctor as he. Please, if this stops one person from seeing him, then I feel as though I have helped. He should be run out of town, and I am disappointed that the hospitals support this man. If you have to go to him, I would tape record or video the entire session, he is dishonest. I believe a video is the only way to stop this man from gaining income by supporting insurance companies. Realize that if he supports the patient, he may lose his monetary gain from the insurance companies, as they do not want a doctor that supports all the patients that have workman comp problems. Beware

Terrible experience

I went to Dr. Blachman a few years ago after another Dr. I was seeing in the practice left. I was referred to him and dropped him after my 2nd visit because he was extremely late (1 1/2 hours!) both times, rude, condescending and made me feel like he thought my symptoms weren’t real. Fast forward and my BF was referred to him for some ongoing serious issues. I went with him to the appointment and my heart dropped after turning the corner and seeing Dr. Blachman. I didn’t recognize the name because I merely thought of him as “that old rude guy.” Well, sure enough, we waited 45 minutes past the appointment time to be talked down to, talked over, interrupted and dismissed. He literally waved his hand from behind his desk to dismiss me when I was explaining something! When my BF was explaining his medical history to him (issues with drugs and alcohol in the past but sober for years), he was completely judgmental and rolled his eyes.... about something that happens 20 years ago!! No patient should see this man and he should retire!!
