Dr. Block saved my mother’s life 10 years ago this month! It was a very unique situation and Dr. Block went above and beyond for her and she made a full recovery. We returned to Dr. Block’s office last month for an unrelated issue. He remembered my mom and I after not seeing us for 5 years. While I’m hoping we don’t need his expertise, I know we will be with the best surgeon possible if he is needed at this time.

The office girls are always very helpful. The nurse takes time to answer lots of questions when you call - and I've never felt rushed by her.

Dr. Block is a superb doctor who really cares about the wellness of his patients. It is a very scary situation to have cancer, however Dr. Block put my mind at ease by taking his time to explain the plan of action of what needs to be done. After my operation at Memorial Cancer Center Dr. Block came to my room and pulled up a chair and had a list of questions about how I feel, he also answered an entire list of questions that I had. I'm so glad to be a permanent patient of Dr. Block and staff.

Dr. Block removed a tumor in my chest last June 2015. I was scared beyond words to have this surgery and the uncertainty of a tumor in that location. Dr Block brought me through the surgery with flying colors and I was able to come home in two days. My tumor was a benign thymoma. I cant thank Dr. Block enough for the awesome care he gave me during this trauma in my life. Thank You Dr. Block and God Bless. If you use Dr Block rest assured you are in good hands.
