Dr. Bloom is a veterinary dermatologist and only treats skin disease (including ears) and allergies. Therefore, if you were referred by your veterinarian, they will continue to provide comprehensive veterinary care. However, a referral is not necessary in order for your pet to be seen by Dr. Bloom.
The new dermatology consult/exam can be quite extensive, so plan on spending about 3 hours in the clinic the first time. Dr. Bloom is our dermatologist. He is double board certified. Dr. Bloom is available for appointments Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, select Fridays, and select Saturdays. Once you make the appointment, we call the veterinarians you and your pet have visited to get the complete medical history faxed to us.
The day of your appointment, Dr. Bloom will thoroughly review your pet's record to see when the issues first started, what the symptoms were and how things have been treated in the past and what the outcomes have been. Dr. Bloom will then perform a complete dermatological and otic exam and then discuss what issues may be affecting your pet, how they might be diagnosed and what treatment he recommends. Please see our Cost of Care page to help you plan for your visit.
