What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Block, MD
Reply
My primary care physician recommended Dr. Block, I have been a patient of his for the past 20 years and I am blessed to call him a friend. He and his staff are most helpful, and professional. His follow-ups are timely and his advice is beneficial. From the time you meet with the receptionist, the visits and back to scheduling, everything goes smoothly.
