Doctor Quote

I believe that there is a strong connection of body and mind in both the assessment and treatment of pain. I encourage patients to fully understand and treat their medical conditions while simultaneously taking steps to gain self-control over both the pain itself, and the effects of pain on their lives.

What Patients are Saying About Dr. Andrew Block, PhD

  • These ‘strangers’ were becoming my friends, and they knew exactly how I felt and what I was going through... It didn’t take me long to figure out that the staff really cared about me. What I liked the most was how all the staff [and Dr. Andrew Block] was on the same page; they worked together toward a common goal. My pain level was down, and my other health problems had actually gone away,. I would recommend the program to anyone. Give it a chance! You get out of it what you put into it. I kept telling the staff I wanted to graduate in three weeks. Truth is, I would have stayed another two weeks!
