    Dr. Paul Block is highly intelligent (not necessarily true of all people calling themselves "Doctor"), as well as witty, and immensely charming. Dr, Block is close to my age, but is as youthful and up-to-date as any doctor I have had in the last decade or more. (Okay he is not as pretty as my pulmonologist, with a lot more wrinkles, but he is still very cute, too!) Dr. Block is the kind of person you would want as a family and personal friend, someone you feel you could trust with your life

    Dr. Block took his time to explain what was going on and how it affected me. I was also shown where my problem was on a chart and what needed to be done to fix my problem.
