Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Block was able to explain collagenous colitis directly, simply, and compassionately. He always answered my numerous questions with humor and a smile. Sadly, he is no longer at Eisenhower. (And that office refuses to make an appt with a different doctor without a referral from a primary - I didn't need that before.)

Dr Block is one of the most qualified doctors I have had the pleasure of working with. His time and patience are immeasurable. He has performed several procedures on me and each time I felt that I had the best doctor. He has spent a lot of time and will go far in trying to get you well or improve your life. He is a super doctor with the background to back it up. His endoscopy procedures are the best. He is a doctor that a patient can completely trust.

Dr. Block performed a very complex procedure on me. The exam and procedure went flawlessly. I left the hospital without any discomfort or pain. He is academic and on top of the latest medical procedures including MRI follow-up for this condition.

Dr. Block is a highly skilled Physician of Gastroenterology. You will not find a more knowledgeable or caring medical professional. Schedule him with confidence that you have selected the best. Do not be dissuaded by the pitfalls of the Eisenhower Administrative System.

Excellent experience and care provided. I am sure, as are my family, friends and work associates who see Dr. Block, the recent negative comment by another entry concerning Dr. Block is a total fake.

Went to Dr Block for a colonoscopy and subsequent complications. I found Dr Block to be more pre-occupied with his status in the Dr community at Eisenhower and less concerned about my hospitalization and follow up. And let me be clear - these complications were a result of his negligence. I would not recommend Dr Block at all. I had a terrible experience with him. There are many fine Gastroenterologists in the desert who would have spent more time with me and worked to resolve the issues

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 :-)
