Dr. Block has been my Physician for over 15 years and and I consider him one of the best Dr's I have ever had and I have had quite a few in various fields. He is definitely a gentle giant. Extremely thorough and caring.

I had the absolute pleasure of being a patient of Dr. Block two years ago and would recommend him 100 times over. I lost one of my twins, and he was so caring and so nurturing and told me it was mothers nature of taking care of something that could have been a lot worse later on. I was skeptical of having a man as an OB (my original GYN didn't deliver babies, but gave me his name) but he put my nerves at ease as soon as I had my initial meeting with him. He's absolutely wonderful. ?

I had a life-changing surgery for the first time at Contemporary OB-Gyn Associates for a procedure that had permanent results with no turning back. Surgery can be scary with so much uncertainty. Dr. Andrew Block is recommended as the top laparoscopic surgeon for a salpingectomy and tubal ligations. He is transparent, kind and very empathetic. He will have conversations with you prior to surgery to make sure this is something you want to do and also make suggestions. He took great care of me.
