I have complete confidence in Dr. Block and moved to San Diego County but travel to Orange County to see him. He is a great caring and thorough doctor which I have been a patient of for over 15 years.

Dr Block was very professional and knowledgeable about his specialty. He is personable and took the time to understand my gastro issues. The Endoscopy and colonoscopy went very well and I highly recommend him. Tom T.
