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 wonderful. She explained everything to me so I could understand. Not just about the visit with her, but also the previous visits I had with another dr. I would highly recommend her to any and all who need a great neurologist.

Dr. Block saved my life. I don’t believe in coincidence, but every time I visited the ER for an unresponsive episode, or had a random test done that needed reading, she ended up being the doc reading them. Her sense of humor, calm manorisms, and outstanding bedside manor are what stuck me to stay with her as a patient. And she is amazingly smart!!! I’ve never met a better doctor in my entire life. This is what the health care field is all about. Kindness goes a long way! Thanks Dr. Block!

Dr. Block took time with me, listened to my list of problems (which was long), and was professional, friendly and very helpful. She understood things about my case that multiple other doctors missed or misdiagnosed and she explained things in a way that I understood her. I was extremely satisfied with my appointment and would recommend her to everyone. Nurses and office staff were also exceptional.
