Dr. Jonathan S. Block

Dr. BlockWhen I decided to make the academic and professional commitment to pursue Veterinary Medicine, the realization that I could spend every day of my life making a positive impact on the lives of animals and people became my underlying driving force. Today, I feel very privileged to be a part of such a unique and fulfilling profession.

I was born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. I received my bachelor's degree from Florida State University and my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. While in veterinary school, I developed an affinity toward integrative therapies as a compliment to the general medicine and surgery of conventional medicine. I quickly realized expanding my medical "toolbox" as an integrative veterinary practitioner will better prepare me to successfully manage the wide variety of cases we encounter on a daily basis. This realization has motivated me to become a certified veterinary acupuncturist and a certified canine rehabilitation therapist.

After beginning my career in Miami, Florida, I relocated to New York City in 2011. I joined The Worth Street Veterinary Center in 2012. My professional interests include integrative medicine, internal medicine, oncology, and rehabilitation medicine. Outside of work I enjoy the great outdoors, running, biking, hiking, sports, yoga, music and art.
