  • Dr. Block is a good listener and provides good information.
    I have complete respect and trust with Dr Block as my provider for my GI issues.
    Dr. Block is an excellent listener, knowledgeable doctor and I have great confidence in him as one of my doctors.
    He was very helpful in explaining details of upcoming test.
    Front office staff don't seem to pick up the phone or take up to 2-3 days to get back to you. if just leave a message on your phone and you call back no one picks up you get a voice recording. very frustrating
