Thirteenth Holistic Doctor (MD, PhD) Dies- Allegedly Jumped from 20th floor
We are so sorry to break this news (as gently as possible) as yet another holistic doctor dies within a matter of months. My heart goes out to his friends, family, and his patients who are commenting on my Facebook page tonight about the wonderful memories of this great man.
The article linked at the bottom also says that he was married and the father to eight children.
For those who wanted to see the other holistic doctors who died suddenly these past few months (NOT counting accidents) the recap can be found here from the first to last – with video.
Dr. J.E. Block MD, PhD, FACP (aka “Doc Block”) allegedly jumped from the 20th floor on Thursday, October 29th 2015 (2 days before this article was written)
From the article linked at the bottom:
Jerome E. Block, M.D., jumped to his death from the Central Park West Apartments, police said.
They said Block jumped from the 20th floor of the complex around 9:30 a.m.
The article (which describes him as a well known prominent doctor) also says that he allegedly committed medical fraud. A man who says he is his attorney (and appears to be) is disputing some of these claims as can be seen in the comments at the bottom of the link. He says if these allegations were true- Dr. Block would have lost his license. Some are calling it a smear campaign and he only died a few days ago.
There is also a link at the bottom where he said earlier this month that he was taking a sabbatical. According to the news sites- he was in his early 70s, but it appears he had been working full time.
Dr. Block’s website has this to say about him in his bio:
