Dr. Keith I. Block, M.D. and Penny Block, M.A., Ph.D., founded the Block Center for Integrative Cancer Treatment in 1980, with a focus on treating the patient as a whole person rather than simply treating the diagnosis. They developed a unique and truly integrative approach to cancer treatment which encompasses traditional and complementary medicine delivered in a caring environment.
During the early years of his medical training, Dr. Block was himself struck by illness in the form of bleeding ulcers and migraines. Being at the patient’s end of a stethoscope had an affect that has lasted a lifetime. Eventually, he sought therapies and philosophies that took into account his whole person. Improving his own condition expanded his professional vision, producing a physician committed to the careful evaluation of all healing potentials.
