  • I have been seeing Dr. Block for 25 years. I now leave far but because I am comfortable with him as my gastroenterologist I make the drive to see him.
    Dr. Block is a very kind and caring doctor.
    Dr. Block was effective and timely at changing the g-tube.
    The Liason was outstanding and kept everything moving and I work constantly with other hospitals and with many dozens of people and doctors and she was superb. I would recommend highly. I was a Trauma Chaplain for many years and know the Importance of going the extra mile for people.
    I had to wait a Very Long time to get an appt while I was in pain-I had to see another Dr in the mean time & when I finally saw Dr Block I didn't have anyPain & my symptoms are gone! I spent a lot of $ doing this & now a have a whole new set of tests to take!
