Board Certified - Family Medicine & Sports Medicine
“When I entered medical school in New York, I envisioned practicing medicine the old fashioned way, the way my own childhood doctor did. I wanted to provide personal service and build lasting relationships. As a personal physician, I am able to honor my philosophy for patient care which is physician driven, care driven, patient driven. It’s rewarding to develop a personal connection with each patient. This contributes to the foundation for better health.” – Dr. Bloom
