Dr Blei was recommended to me by our children's pediatrician as one of the best specialists in her area in NYC. We had two consultations, over a period of six months, and I found her personable and helpful on each occasion. On the second occasion she sent both my kids for an ultrasound at Lenox Hill Hospital, where we got a second opinion. Afterwards, her office contacted me to organize an ultrasound. I wrote Dr Blei an e-mail explaining - very politely - that the kids had already had ultrasounds, and asking what she thought the next steps should be. Bizarrely, she has absolutely refused to communicate with me since. I have sent several emails, I have spoken on several occasions to her secretary. Five months have gone by with no response. Finally two weeks ago I called her office to say that I was upset and felt I was being mistreated, and please would Dr Blei at least provide some explanation as to why she would not respond to my messages. Her secretary assured me she would pass the message on. I got no response. I called her secretary today, and she said, "She didn't call you back? I'm sorry, I can't imagine why she wouldn't. I explained to her that you were very unhappy"... Etc Etc Etc. I can't imagine what's behind all this, but any doctor that would treat her patients' parents like this is a disgrace. We invested time and money in her care, and we are left, after a year, none the wiser. Thankfully, it's not an emergency situation; two of my kids have vascular malformations that probably just need to be monitored. But I would certainly advise anyone to steer well clear of this doctor.
