Son saw Dr. Block when he was ill. It turned out our son was really ill & had to have blood taken & ended up getting very sick immediately afterwards. She was by his side helping him until it was okay for him to leave. How many Dr's do that! She called to check up on him & kept us updated all through the testing and healing process. She is fabulous and am a little shocked by some of the reviews on her. I drive 20 mls for this practice & it's worth every mile.

My daughter has been seeing Dr. Block since birth (almost 5 now). We love her. She is young and smart and has young children herself. As first time parents she always gave us great advice (and we needed a lot of it). When we do walk in appointments and Dr. Block is not the one covering them my daughter gets sad. Although the other doctors in the practice are also good we are always happy to see Dr. Block.

Impatient and rude. Suggested laxative/stool softener for toddler, rather than suggesting high fiber foods, etc.
in Vernon Hills, IL |
Not too friendly. Sort of military feeling. I felt like maybe because I'm Hispanic I'm treated like this, but I guess I'm not the only one.
