Dr. Bloch took care of my dad when he was diagnosed with cancer. He was kind, caring, and spent an incredible amount of time with us. He was the only physician my dad really trusted to direct his medical care. He is amazing!

He operated on me in 2017 for meningioma about 2 centimeters big. It was located behind my eye so only 80% was removed but he did a fantastic job! I would trust him to open my head again and honestly he just gives you this sincere vibe and his character and industry knowledge show. I was up and running in no time. I’ll have minor symptoms for life but nothing I can’t handle. He’s quick responsive attentive and genuine. He saved my life! Thank you! Best of luck on your new career ventures!

Very caring. Talks to patents in an intelligent, but not patronizing, way. He is patient and happy to answer questions and explain what the patient wants to know.

I saw Dr. Bloch to discuss surgery option for my benign brain tumor (subependymoma). Dr. Bloch spent about 30 minutes with my husband and myself discussing my conditions, answering questions about the surgery risks and the surgery approach. Dr. Bloch was very calm and compassionate and discussed and helped us understand our options in a way that was easy to understand for non-medical experts. We also felt that Dr. Bloch encouraged a joint decision making process - surgery vs. watchful waiting.
