HE IS EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEBABLE AND EXPERIENCED. HE HAS A FRIENDLY WARM PERSONALITY AND IS ALWAYS COMPOSED AND VERY CARING. HE IS AN EXCELLANT LISTENER AND VERY GOOD AT EXPLAINING THINGS SO YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THEM AND DON'T PANIC AT THE DIAGNOSIS. HE IS INTERESTED IN YOU AS A PERSON AND THE KIND OF DOCTOR EVERYONE HOPES TO HAVE AS A DOCTOR.

Dr Bloch has been caring for my mother for the last couple of years. Her kidney function was at 16% and is now up to 30%, under his care. She has had a stroke and beginnings of dementia, and can be very difficult to handle. Dr. Bloch shows respect and a very caring demeanor. He explains things to help her understand and never makes us feel rushed. He is one of the few doctors my mother likes.
