Our Philosophy

The Block Center Philosophy

00 10 17 414 Philosophy

We view illness as a turning point, a wake-up call for reclaiming your health and transforming your life.

Care, caring and experience distinguish the Block Center. Our treatment approach is:

  • Genuinely integrative
  • Grounded in clinical research
  • Based on your unique individual biomedical and molecular fingerprint
  • Hope-oriented and life affirming

Personalized care is the cornerstone of the Block Center philosophy. We concentrate on practicing medicine as an art that devises and deploys treatments tailored to each individual.

Ours is a patient-centered world view, one in which all our services are dedicated to assessing an individual person’s medical, nutritional, physical, psychosocial and emotional needs. Because the mind and body are interconnected, all your dimensions must be considered in your treatment. Only after those aspects of your physical and psychological condition have been evaluated can we develop a customized, multidimensional program strategy for you, a plan of care that matches you and your unique situation.

We believe in the healing power of hope in guiding and supporting the individual, and encourage healing, vitality and wellness through an active and life-affirming spirit.

Decades of experience with patients from all walks of life, and with countless different diagnoses and prognoses, have convinced the community of Block Center medical professionals that one of the keys to recapturing and maintaining health and wellness is for the patient to be actively engaged in her or his own recovery.
