I had gone to 2 different podiatrists in Canada and the US as well as an orthopaedic surgeon who were unable to help me. I was unable to walk without pain because of a lump on the bottom of my foot. All thrnother doctors told me I woukd just have to live with thr pain. Dr. Block was very thorough and figured out immediately how to help me. The lump is gone and i am able to walk without pain. I would highly recommend him. His staff is also amazing, so friendly and helpful.

Most disappointing visit - Dr Block has very poor bedside manner - Unfriendly, cold and distant - very poor diagnosis with little or no explanation- all he wanted was to give me shots which I declined. Plus I had to wait an hour and half.

I have been a patient of Dr. Block's since 2004 and can highly recommend him for any kind of foot issue. He has made my feet operational after numerous over zealous walking trips, sports injuries and broken foot bone due to walking into a suitcase. I have found him very knowledgeable in his treatments and extremely thoughtful when it comes to a treatment/procedure. He will not recommend a procedure just to receive payment from insurance if he feels it is not right for you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Dr. Block. I am finally pain free after seeing you yesterday. Walked around with what I thought was a broken toe for 2 weeks. Kept saying it will get better. I didn't even feel the shot you gave me and I was terrified after having a bad experience some 30 years ago with a doctor in NY. You and your staff were amazing. No broken toe, no pain...and I'm a very happy camper. :)

Dr. Block is amazing. He is very smart and knowledgeable about his profession. I have been going to Dr. Block for five years now. The office manager is amazing and will help you in anyway that she can if you have any questions about insurance, appointments, or products. Dania, the nurse, is extremely attentive and nice. Great office and staff!!!

I find Dr. Block to be incompetent. I went to him as I was having pain toward the back of my foot. He diagnosed bone spurs and gave me a serious of three injections which were ineffective. He also sold me a liquid anesthetic which I could use to lessen the pain. I questioned why I had ever gone to a podiatrist, and made an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon (a real doctor). Without even seeing the MRI he thought I had a torn tendon which was the correct diagnosis.

THREE visits. Ingrown toenail. Kept going to wrong toe. Does not look at you but stares into "that folder". Pain got too bad to deal with him. Went to another Dr. and in one visit he took care of it. I don't get all these good reviews- maybe it's just me. ps- tries to sell products that are "way overpriced". Tack-eee.

I went to Dr. Block on the recommendation of a number of friends that also have him as there podiatrist. His staff is very knowledgeable and helped with all my insurance questions. Dr. Block is treating me for the fungus on my nails and at this time my nails are looking much better. I would highly recommend Dr. Block for all of your podiatry needs. His staff is friendly, funny and super to chat with. I had such a pleasant and comfortable experience and his office is modern, clean. Betty
