Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Block "As an individual whose own family has been touched by cancer, I consider the diagnosis, care and treatment of every patient as carefully as I would a member of my own family.  With my primary interests in clinical practice, I understand the importance of providing the most advanced treatment options to my patients. I have served as a principal investigator for several cancer studies and participate strongly and actively in many research studies to offer exceptional, innovative care for my patients."
