Excellent surgeon

Dr Block performed a lobectomy of my lower left lung using minimally invasive surgery after I received a lung cancer diagnosis. I was in the hospital for only two nights and had an easy recovery with very little pain. I highly recommend Dr Block ! He is a very skilled surgeon, as well as being caring and professional.
