  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Not nice

Brilliant diagnostician, but rude and condescending. Comes into exam room unprepared. Doesn't let patient speak and doesn't listen. Talks about himself throughout and because of that an appointment can take hours.

Steve is a wonderful doctor but a better human.Where most doctors are arrogant and refuse to doubt themselves-Steve is never afraid to get the correct answer. If more doctors were like Steve-I would not have the spinal problems I currently have. You want an honest, humble doc-this is the one-you want an arrogant, self centered, egotistical doc-then go elsewhere!

I have been a patient of Dr. Blander since he moved to Connectcut, some thirteen years ago. He is a very caring doctor and I couldn't be more pleased. He is exactly the kind of doctor one would wish for to be their internist. I never have had a problem getting an appointment.
