After Dr. Okumu diagnosed me with a herniated disk, I sought Dr. Kenneth Blumenfeld to get a second opinion.
He arrived late and spent about five minutes staring at my MRI.
The last doctor was gone for about 20 minutes.
After asking me some questions, he began to attack me with a very sexist tone.
He said it wasn’t herniated and was just “bulging” and that my symptoms were not related to a disc problem.
He was so mean that my husband had the nerve to defend me.
I explained to him that C3/4 discs don’t have pain that should be in my arms.
He quickly corrected himself but maintained that the pain was not in the right place.
I wasn’t sure of that, but I found out when I returned home that he was also wrong.
He performed a diagnostic exam on my body and found some issues.
He didn’t want to admit that he was wrong in his initial assessment. Instead, he remained silent and refused any further explanation.
He was a complete waste of $40 and knew far less about my neck than I did. I also had to endure his cruelty.
