Very caring and understanding

This man saved my mothers life. She was visiting Palm Desert when she had excruciating pain. She went to Eisenhower's ER and the next day Dr. Block performed EUS. Her condition had gone undiagnosed for possibly years. Her Bile duct and liver had numerous stones that were blocking her duct. These organs were infected along with her blood and she was going into septic shock. She wouldn't of made it 24 more hours. So, a big shout out to Dr. Block and God for orchestrating all the details :-)
