Absolutely the worst doctor I have ever been to. I have never had a doctor like this! He would tell me one thing at my visits all the way down to scheduling me for surgery and then do a complete 180 and tell me something else knowing full well he had not been credentialed to perform surgery. Was constantly given the run around by office staff. Could never get any straight answers from anyone concerning my care. HORRIBLE!!!Thankful I fired him!

I went to Dr. Block because one of my toes w/hitting the top of my shoe. He told me that I had the beginning of Hammer Toes and did surgery on four toes, minus Big toe. After healing my little toe w/turned at 180 degrees! It wasn't like that to start with. I then had surgery from a different doctor to correct it. I am in constant pain. His waiting room was always full of people for post op appointments. At first my thought w/that it w/a good sign. Hindsight tells me differently.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
