John Bock's bio

This content was provided by John Bock "Our Clinical Director, Dr. John Bock has more than 20 years of experience as a registered dietitian. Dr. Bock has initiated and implemented specialty nutrition-focused programs for bariatric surgery, surgical oncology, women's health, congestive heart failure, lipid management, and diabetes. He has been successful with developing an individualized plan of care for patients with irritable bowel syndrome and other complex gastrointestinal disorders. His approach for behavior modification starts with each client setting their own goals, while providing coaching, encouragement and motivation to help patients achieve these goals.Dr. Bock has been the Coordinator of Bariatric Surgery and Critical Care Nutrition at St. Francis Medical Center in Trenton, NJ. He was responsible for coordinating bariatric surgery patients through the pre- and postoperative process. He also provided medical nutrition therapy for both inpatient and outpatient bariatric clients to promote the best outcomes after surgery. His doctoral research demonstrated that patients who followed his guidance and came in for routine preoperative visits had significantly better outcomes than those who came in only one time before surgery. Learning proper eating behaviors before surgery is essential to prevent poor food tolerance, dehydration and improved weight loss postoperatively. Dr. Bock has worked with critically ill patients as part of an intensive care team, using innovative techniques to assure patients received proper nutrition during their hospitalization. He has prior clinical experience treating advanced kidney and liver disease patients as part of the transplant team at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. He has experience working with both cardiac rehab and dialysis patients providing counseling to promote essential lifestyle changes. Dr. Bock was privileged to work with Johnson and Johnson on developing their Realize Band product and bariatric surgery educational materials.Throughout his career, Dr. Bock has been a prolific writer for both clinical and general interest publications on topics in nutrition. He also has extensive mentoring and teaching experience at Rutgers University, Drexel University, Sodexo Dietetic Internships and has lectured for numerous professional conferences throughout the country.Dr. Bock is a graduate of Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Science and Dietetics. He completed his internship and at the University of Pittsburgh and later received his Master of Science degree from Central Michigan University in 2003. He completed his Doctor of Clinical Nutrition degree at Rutgers University, with a specialization in the nutrition management of patients undergoing bariatric surgery."
