San Diego, CA
“One of the most life-affirming parts of my EDS journey has been the opportunity to have Dr. Bluestein on my care team. I listened to Bendy Bodies and followed her on social media for a long time before scheduling a consultation, and only wish I’d done so sooner! She listened to my concerns, empathized with me, and developed a thorough, holistic, and targeted treatment plan to help reduce my pain, increase my movement, and set me on a much happier and healthier path! Dr. Bluestein has truly been a game changer in my life – her expertise and kindness are unparalleled; she is truly a gem”.
"Since my initial visit, my fatigue is better, my sleep has improved, I have less pain and am less anxious. I have gotten even more than I expected from the regimen you started me on".
“I always recommend Dr. Linda Bluestein at Hypermobility MD to people with confirmed or suspected Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes or Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders, and the reason is because she GETS it. Even when we present with comorbidities (like POTS, MCAS, IC, and more), she’s able to look at and understand the WHOLE picture of a patient’s health and try outside-of-the-box options that actually work. I believe that Dr. Bluestein understands EDS and HSD like no other doctor out there. She’s a zebra-whisperer who is a proverbial zebra herself. You really can’t underestimate the importance of having a healthcare provider who knows what it feels like to live inside a body like yours. As for her insights, compassion, care, and good humor, she’s amazing. I am clear-headed (unlike how I would feel on the kinds of “pain meds” that most pain clinics prescribe) and I’m feeling better than ever – less pain, more mobility, tons of happiness and hope. And I love telling other EDS and HSD warriors that they don’t have to despair if they don’t live in Wisconsin, because Dr. Bluestein can see us via video no matter where we live. As for her self-pay model, it’s turned out to be one of the best returns on healthcare investment I’ve ever made because she’s actually helping me feel better and she never sends me on expensive diagnostic journeys if they aren’t necessary. Finding Dr. Bluestein was the biggest blessing in my EDS journey.”
“I am so thankful for Dr. Bluestein and her expertise as a hypermobility disorder specialist! After hitting a dead end in a clinic system where none of their doctors were able to treat my symptoms, I saw Dr. Bluestein. After a month of her treatment plan, my pain was reduced and quality-of-life was improved. After two months, my functioning began to improve! She is addressing a health problem that had plagued me for 20 years - one that conventional doctors told me, “I don’t have a pill for that“. I am so happy to have found Dr. Bluestein!"
"I have my husband back! No doctor was able or willing to explore the pain causes. Dr. Bluestein listened, explored, and suggested medication changes that heal and soothe his nervous system instead of covering it up and erasing his personality. Thank you!”
“Thank you so very much for being you and giving me the individual attention and understanding of my condition. Most of all, I appreciate your ability to diagnose and communicate a thorough plan for my arachnoiditis recovery. Dr. Bluestein is great and did an awesome job!“
“Dr. Bluestein was very thorough, patient, insightful, and kind. After talking with her, I have a much greater understanding of my body, how it works and how to help it. I feel confident in the plan that she gave me and I’m excited to start!"
“Her explanations are clearly understandable even to a non-medical person. Her conversation is inspirational as she explains the outcome and the possibilities of helping solve the problems. I wish more physicians were as transparent. I am confident the person I love is getting the best possible care“.
“Dr. Bluestein has been the most amazing doctor and I am so grateful to have found you. You gave me hope when I had none. You are the kindest and most thorough doctor I’ve ever had. There’s not enough to words to say how wonderful you are and how thankful I am.”
