Specialties

  • Hematology & Oncology

    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.

Dr. Block is THE BEST!!!

My sister had a double mastectomy and is being treated by Dr. Block-we were all so fearful, however, Dr. Block has been directing every course of rehab, and my sister is on a path to a cure!!!!!

Dr Block is my Mother's Oncologist

My mother is 83 years old and was diagnosed with CML about 13 years ago and has been in remission for over 10 years. Dr. Block stays on top of her condition with regular visits and the staff there is great. Dr. Block and my mother's primary care physician work together to get tests done in a timely manner and pass results on to each other / coordinate care so that she isn't having to schedule extra appointments. She is very good to answer my Mom's questions and make her feel that she understands what is going on. She is not a 'touchy-feely' type of physician, but I feel she cares for her patients and is compassionate in her care.

After waiting for 90 minutes, she spent all of 15 with me. Was NOT kind or sensitive to a newly diagnosed breast cancer patient.
