He is a straight shooter and told me I had to loose weight. Did not believe him at first. Lost 30 pounds and my pain has improved. Another surgeon wanted to operate on my back.
My surgery nearly debilitated me. Over a year later and i am suffering. He may do well on small surgeries but not major surgeries. I lost my job because of the surgery. The NP accused me of having illegal substances in my urine and i do not even drink alcohol. I would recommend big surgeries to be done at Leatherman or a team of surgeons rather than a Nurse Practitioner who hates men and demmoralizes those in chronic pain. I pray their staff (NP especially) read this because Darlinda basically destroyed my life.
Compasionate caring doctor! Took away my pain with an incision the size of a 7 eleven slurpy straw. Walked out of the hospital and have my life back
I was in horrible painâ¦â¦. Had injections in my neck which gave me short term relief. Dr. Blok performed surgery on my neck and now no neck or arm pain. I am only 2 weeks from surgery. I was in pain for 6 years. I had to wait a considerable amount of time to see him, but it was worth it.
I believe Dr. Blok is sincere and honest however, my fusion was unsuccessful. His nurse practitioner is a jerk and uncompassionate towards those who suffer. I've waited weeks for paperwork (short-term disability) that nearly cost me my job. This is not a pain management facility, otherwise I would not be in chronic pain month after surgery. I wish I had a success story but not today.
worth the wait. I had to wait 8 weeks to see Dr. Blok. That was my only issue. He spent time explaining my problem and was not cut happy. I had seen another surgeon who immediately wanted to put screws and rods in my back and did not even exam me.
Dr . Blok is truly amazing. He put me at ease because he obviously knows exactly what he's doing but he seems grounded and very personal and comforting. I feel so lucky to be able to experience his expertise.
I had to wait to see him. Was worth it. Honest and a straight shooter. He fixed my neck and I returned to work 2 weeks after surgery.
Excellent Doctor as well as his Nurse Practitioner! Performs thorough examinations & testing. Extremely pleased!
He performed a procedure on my neck which made my arm pain go away. Honest and caring staff and Doc!!!
I was evaluated at a large spine practice in Louisville whom wanted to put screws in my back. The doctor was in and out of the room in under a minute!!! I was totally confused and did not fell comfortable. My neighbor told me to see Dr. Blok. He spent time explaining my mri and used models to explain what I had and how he could fix it. With out screws!!!!!! I feel so much better.
I was unable to work secondary to my back pain. I am now pain free after having surgery and back to work in two weeks. I am a bussiness owner and do not generate income if I am not in the office. I am gratefull!!!!!!! I enjoy my work and unlike most people wanted to go back.
The office either doesn't know how to maneuver workman's comp paper work, they are too lazy to do so, or they are in their pocket. The nurse practitioner is rude and unsympathetic to real pain and unwilling to give helpful information.
Finally someone who would listen to me!!!!!!!!
He did not perform surgery on me but diagnose me with a muscle disorder. Another dr wanted to rod my back. I am so happy Ifound him
I was very impressed with Dr. Blok. He spent time explaining my problem and treatment options. I elected for surgery and he was able to remove my herniation via a small incision. Has no idea he was here and offered this procedure. My barber recommended him and I am glad.
I am glad I found him!! My sciatica nerve was hurting me. He did a surgery with a small incision and NO PAIN!!! Wish I would of found him sooner. I was in pain for 6 monthes and my doctor just put me on pain medication.
He took his time to show me what was wrong on the mri films. He used models to show me what the mri was of and to explain the surgery. First physician in a while to actual do a physical exam and lay his hands on me. Impressed.
He was very grounded And straight forward. He showed me on the computer where my germination was located Nd used models to show how he was going to remove it. Back to work in 2 week.
I had the misfortune of being treated by several other spine doctors and wish I would of found Dr. Blok before I had a large open surgery. I never got the impression that he wanted to "empty my wallet". He fortunately did not have to perfrom surgery and was able to refer me for a special pain injection. He was very humble and did not appear to be cut happy like a lot of surgeons.
I started seeing Dr. Blok in July for neck pain,which he even said was calcified herniated discs against my spinal cord and arthritis.He sent me twice to have injections in my neck,and when that failed,he claimed it should have taken care of my problem,and sent me to have an EMG done,which PROVED the issue was nerve root related in my neck,it also showed a mild compression to the inside of my elbow,which Dr. Hasnain said was of no consequence. At my next appointment with doc blok,he walked into the room with his copy of the EMG report claiming there is nothing wrong with my neck,but rather my LEBOW was causing my neck pain and keeping my from turning my head and referred my to Klienert and Kutz who quickly referred me to Leatherman spine center because in their words,I have the worst neck they have seen on YEARS,and never under anyone under 70.... don't go to doc blok all he will do is relieve your wallet!
I wish I was one of the people who Dr Blok helped. He told me after being put in the hospital and looking at my MRI that I had a buldge in my disc. Last week I went to another doctor with the same MRI from a year ago and I dont have a buldge, I have a herniated disc. Dr blok just put me on pain meds and sent me on my way. For a year I have suffered thinking my disc was buldging when in reality it needed surgery. At this point, I cant feel my toes, my ankle or my right leg and will probably have severe nerve damage at this point. I am having surgery this month because I finally found a doctor that knows what he is doing.
Totally impressed. He explained my problem, fixed it, and back to work.
Dr. Blok made a tiny incision and removed my bad disk. I am back to work and have no pain!!!!!!!!!!!
he took my pain away and I was able to return to my job!!!!andProvide for my family
He made a small incision and took out the bad disk with a lazer. I went back to work in just a couply of weeks
Dr. Blok is the first patient to actually place his hands on my back where it hurt and show me my mri pictures. He fixed my back with a tiny incision!!!!!!!!!!
Dr. Blok was able to fix my disc using an incision the SIZE OF A STRAW!!!!!!!! I have no pain and returned to work the next week.
Dr. Blok actually took the time to show me my mri films and used a spine model to allow me to finally understand why my back was making my leg hurt. The staff are all friendly and kind as well.
One of the nicest, caring & professional doctors I have ever dealt with. He diagnosed my problems correctly after I had seen 2 other doctors with no relief. I thought I would have to spend the rest of my life in pain but he rid me of that notion immediately. I would highly recommend him to anyone with back problems.
Dr Blok is an amazing physician and surgeon! His minimally invasive procedure's get you back to work quickly!He is so kind and caring, and his staff are awesome, they truely care about their patient's.
I could no longer tolerate my pain and was in a bad way. He fused my back and took away my pain.
Dr Blok fixed my back using minimally invasive technology. I have my life back!!!!
Dr. Blok did my surgery in Charlestown and was the only surgeon who said they could fix my Lumbar with out a rod so I said go for it. He did it, I went into outpatient and same day I was in Jay C store riding on motorized scooter. I wanted to return to work ASAP but he made me take it easy for at least 6 weeks. He took the lumbar pain away, he was fantastic. Now I need to do my cervical but I have to stop smoking first and get the right insurance. I can now mow grass, go to the zoo with my family, go shoppping with my wife and children, enjoy life without lumbar pain. Next it will be without cervical pain as soon as I am ready I hope he will be ready and willing.
