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!
