    I am reviewing a comment that was posted about Dr Block. I strongly disagree. I have had many opportunities to evaluate his character. I have had a complete opposite experience. Furthermore he saved my moms life and made a great impact, in the care of my dad. I would highly recommend him to all patients that seek a compassionate and highly skilled geriatric physician.
