From the moment I entered I knew it was a perfect match. Dr. Block and the Block Center team gave me the information, confidence and comprehensive approach I’d been seeking. They provided the best of conventional cancer treatment integrated with a whole host of science-supported therapies and services that helped me win my fight.

When we went to the Block Center for a second opinion, it was such a different, more positive experience. They gave me a lot of hope. After just 6 months, my tumor markers have dropped from over 900 to just 2.3, my orange-sized tumor is the size of a grape, and I’m doing great, even working 40 to 50 hours a week… even while in chemotherapy treatment.

The Block Center takes a whole-body approach, which I think is quite essential given the high level of recurrence among cancer patients. I wanted to do everything possible to keep that fate off the table. I wanted a long, satisfying life, and I felt the Block Center would give me the best opportunity for that. Four years since my diagnosis of Stage 3B colon cancer, there are no signs of cancer in my tests and nothing indicating cause for concern.
