Dr. Block is a seasoned MFM doctor and I've been seeing him for my T2 Diabetes, which he has been treating very well. His sense of humor can be dry at times, but outside of that, he is very calm, and I feel comfortable when he speaks to me. Everyone ha's their reasons for seeing who they see, but he has experience, and a good track record for delivering with the mothers health and well-being in mind, as well as making sure the baby is health and doing well. He covers all the medical bases and honors and respects the decisions of what the parents want in the delivery process! I could care less on other reviews I've read, because office staff and his dry sense of humor has nothing to do with him delivering and taking care and ensuring the safety of the whole process during labor. They don't push vaccines, they honor the delayed cord clamping, mother and baby bonding, you can't get anymore natural in a hospital setting and we love that about loma linda, and Dr. Block. They respect us!

Dr Block has a dry sense of humor and a horrible bedside manner. He doesn't listen to what you're saying and just dribbles on with the same information each appointment. I had serious doubts about his competency to deliver my baby safely, so I switched providers. I recommend looking somewhere else when picking a high risk OB GYN.
