Outstanding doctor. Knowledgeable and caring
My dad was a patient of Dr. Block from 2002 - 2018. He had the highest regard for her. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring, and attentive to detail. She listened to his concerns, and patiently answered our questions. My dad was under her care following a cancer surgery in 2002 and for multiple myeloma from 2012-2018.

Dr. Block manages oncology care for both of my parents. She take the time to listen, answer questions and has never rushed them (or family) through an appointment. Dr. Block thoroughly explains findings, treatment options & possible side effects. I/we trust her & her team with 2 lives & we have never regretted that decision or had a poor experience with Dr. Block or her Team. I have, and will continue, to refer patients to Dr. Block.

One of the sharpest, most caring doctors. My mother's doc for 20+ years. Very holistic/sees the big picture. So happy we chose her when Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Seldom saw Dr. Block. Did not give complete test reseults when decisions to be made. Appt. changed frequently due to MD’s schedule. When a decision was made by patient for Hospice MD argued that it was not the right decision. Pain management was poor. She is knowledgeable. No consistency in provider that sees patient. Nurses that work in infusion area make this experience tolerable. Read Dr personal thoughts on care and they do not match what was received.

I had the utmost confidence in Dr. Block from the first time I met with her after my triple negative breast cancer diagnosis. She made me feel I was getting the absolutely right treatment for my cancer, and I now have no evidence of disease! I am so grateful for the care I received from Dr. Block and her wonderful team!
