Dr. Arthur Bloch, MD

Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Psychiatrist

Professional statement

I have strived to maintain an independent practice in order to assure that my patients receive the personal attention they deserve. As every patient's situation and needs are different, their treatment plans must be individualized to reflected these differences. I employ a variety of therapeutic approaches in an attempt to maximize the effectiveness of treatment. I use medication conservatively. that is, I prescribe the lowest dosages of the fewest medications necessary to eliminate or minimize symptoms. I encourage my patients to become active participants in their treatment rather than passive observers.

He is outstanding!!!!! Another fabulous doctor that is listed here! I have MS and I need Adderall in order to function at all and I cannot speak when I wake up the sentences are in my head but they will notcome out of my mouth I am a PhD and is frustrating !!! Even though he is a psychiatrist he fully understands ramifications of MS , and other diseases! I would recommend him to anyone! Thank you so much Dr. block !!! PS: if it says he is not available any date per his schedule and he showed me he has openings my suggestion is you call him directly especially if you are in established patient like myself I showed him this nap here with no openings and he showed me his work and his head availabilities!

Dr. Bloch sincerely cares about his patients and their wellbeing. He was courtious enough to do a check-up call after I had forgotten to schedule a follow up appointment. When I was experiencing some negative side effects from a perscriptionDr Bloch returned my call the next day and helped me get a follow up appointment right away where we found a solution to the issue. Truely a great and professional doctor.

Been seeing this doctor for several years now on a regular basis for psychotherapy and medication regulation. By far the only psychiatrist who truly cared about my well being, and also really took time to understand my problems before prescribinganything unnecessary. Definitely recommend this doctor for either purpose, or both if needed (why see two doctors when you can see one...especially since the two other Docs may not even be effectively communicating the true issues with each other?). He does his best to stay on time- but like every other doctor, if patients are late, the doctor will run late, and he cares to give his patients their full time b/c he is a nice person. So prepare to have a little wait time ON OCCASION- and if you do book with him, do us all a favor and BE ON time!

Dr. Arthur goes above and beyond in his treatment care and anylization. He has a natural knack to make one feel comfortable openly speaking with him on any troublesome topic. Since beginning my bi-monthly sessions with him, over two years ago,my quality of life has substantially increased. I'd recommend his therapeutic services to any one

Dr. Arthur is a thorough and thoughtful Psychiatric MD. And he has helped me to work through several issues related to PTSD and depression. Over the course of seeing him monthly for the 2 years, coworkers, family & friends have noticeda substantial improvement in my quality of life. I do attribute much of this peace of mind to seeing him.

I felt very uncomfortable. Office was very outdated. He has lots of birds in cages and I felt he paid more attention to the birds than me. Also too many plants and I am very allergic. He just asked questions andgave no feedback at all. I felt it was a complete waste of my time. The only thing he did was increase a medication I am already on.

Dr. Bloch was very warm and helpful. Listened to what i had to say and made me feel comfortable. Had been with my previous doctor for over 20 years before she retired so i was anxious about starting with a new doctor. Dr, Bloch definitely eased my mind.

I was a new patient of his and was scheduled for 6:30. He called me the day of to check some things about my insurance. I had to call him back because I was at work and his voice mail wasfull. When I got to the appointment, he wasn't aware I was even on his schedule and also didn't believe me that his voicemail was full. Seemed extremely confused and out of it. He seemed extremely rushed to get me out of there and made me feel invalid as a patient. He kept checking his watch and at one point, answered his phone to talk to his wife about dinner. His office was not comfortable at all. There were birds everywhere and he was seated super far away from where the patient sits. Bedside manner was awful. Made no effort to get to know me as a patient and just asked the standard questions off of a piece of paper. I have been through many psychiatrists in my life and he was by far the worst. I saw him once and never went back.

I met with Dr. Bloch during his last appointment on a Tuesday evening. (6:45pm). For how late it was and despite the fact that I was about 10 min late to the appointment (I called him to let him know Iwould be), he was fully engaged and was willing to go a few min past my appointment end-time to make sure we covered everything. He was incredibly helpful and thorough. I am looking forward to seeing him in the future.

He is a great doctor. I've been through a number of psychiatrists, and they were all condescending, and made feel entirely unimportant and unvalued as a patient (we should feel that our doctors have a general concern for our well being).Dr. Bloch has made me feel super secure about sharing very personal things, and I definitely feel that he truly cares about my well being.

Dr. Bloch is the first psychiatrist who really took the time to get to know me. I have been dealing with these issues since I can remember and have seen numerous doctors. I have ALWAYS felt like I was in arush during these appointments. I felt quite the opposite with Dr Block. He really listened to everything I had to say and I realized things about myself that no other doctor even came close to. Honestly, after talking to him for over an hour, he knew more than any psychiatrist I have talked you! He is the real deal!!
