Dr. Block is gifted in her profession and caring to her patients. She listens intently, and is a very detail-oriented professional. My only regret is that I didn’t come sooner. Her staff is great and mirror her professionalism. The cliche that no one cares what you know till they know you care is applicable to Dr. Block. She is a wealth of knowledge yet, her focus is providing her patients with the best spinal, pain relief, and holistic care possible. I am truly blessed because of her.*
The Block Chiropractic and Rehab family deserve the Presidential Medal of Freedom for the relief they provide their clients and patients.

I have been in the military for 30 years, I have received medical care in 7 states and 3 countries. I have not experienced a more professional, hard working, and effective health care provider. Dr Block is one of the best, period.*
My family and I have been with Dr. Block since the beginning of her career in chiropractic care!! She is an amazing doctor and a lovely person! I would recommend her practice to anyone and I have done just that! Many of my friends and fellow teachers now go to Block Chiropractic! She has great people working with her as well!*
I went to Dr. Block after bad whiplash from a car wreck. She has gotten my range of motion back to normal. YAY!*
I went to Dr Block during a time when I had a back injury. Within 2 visits my back pain was non-existent. During one visit I mentioned a bad knee and she worked on it and it slipped at a much lesser rate. Professional, excellent listener, I recommend.*
I began going to see Dr. Block and Dr. Lindsay this past fall, then recently, began acupuncture treatments with Brittany. I am so glad I went. I am getting compassionate and thorough care. The staff is unfailingly polite as well!*
I started seeing Dr Block for neck pain and migraines. She listens well and asks pertinent follow up questions. All of the staff is friendly and helpful. There is a second chiropractor – Dr. Lindsey, a couple of acupuncturists and massage therapists. I have not seen them all, but have used the services of several and have no complaints. Dr. Block does sometimes run late, but they also have water massage beds, so if you use those you can do that before the session.*
I just started going to a chiropractor recently and all I can say is Dr. Block is awesome! The facility is nice and the staff are very friendly and helpful; you couldn’t ask for a better place or experience!*
