Dr. Samuel A Bock has the following 2 specialties
- Allergy and Immunology
An allergy & immunology specialist is a physician who is specially trained in matters pertaining to chronic and acute allergies, as well as deficiencies of the immune system. The doctor will determine whether an allergy, which attacks our immune system, is present. They'll also determine the cause, whether it be environmental triggers like trees and pollen, food-borne like peanuts and dairy, the venom of insects like bees, or a medication like penicillin.
In addition to determining the allergen causing an immunological response in a patient, the specialist will treat the symptoms caused by the reaction.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I went to see Dr. Bock about a recurring issue with my eyelid (allergic reaction to unknown irritant). He was thorough in his assessment, took the time to explain the possible solutions and even suggested another Dr who may be the next step. He was warm, gracious and charming. Wish more doctors treated their patients like Dr. Bock. I would recommend him to anyone at any age.
We relocated from out of state, and I took my son who suffers from food allergies to see Dr. Bock. He is very professional and friendly--my 2 and a half year old son was completely at ease in his office. He gave us a lot of information and handouts to take home and explained our next steps very well without being condescending. It was really refreshing to see an allergist who actually tested for multiple sensitivities (our old allergist refused to do that and only told us to avoid anything and everything he MIGHT be allergic to until he was 5). I'm excited because we may begin food challenges with some of the allergies my son might be outgrowing--the ability to take him to a restaurant without packing him his own meal from home is huge, and Dr. Bock seems to be genuinely interested in his safety but also in giving him a more normal life.
Dr. Bock is obviously an intelligent physician and researcher, but he is quite simply the rudest, most condescending doctor I have ever seen. He was disrespectful to me in front of my son and then humiliated my son who cried after the appointment. He left both of us feeling horrible about our intuition and our hard work to manage my son's food allergies. His information may be good, but his delivery is demeaning and better suited for a hostile courtroom cross examination.
Dr. Bock is an exceptional allergist. He has been treating our daughters food allergies for 3 years now and I find him honest and straight forward. He genuinely loves these kids and will answer questions. He shares research with you, respects your role as a parent and understands the myriad issues involved in keeping a child safe. He is very straighforward and his manner might not be warm and fuzzy with parents but I have a fantastic dialogue with him and I know that my girls are being treated by the best. I think with allergies and especially food allergies, there is so little understood and known and a lot of people get angry at Dr.'s because it feels so out of control. I appreciate that Dr. Bock says "we dont know" when the medical research doesnt know.
