Dr. Block death
We are so sorry to break this news (as gently as possible) on yet another holistic doctor found dead within a matter of months.

Dr. J.E. Block MD, PhD, FACP (aka "Doc Block") allegedly jumped out the window today on Halloween eve.

From the article (linked at 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 was fined for medical fraud. In fact, every breaking local news article I can find about it screams in the headlines about 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.

Dr. Block's website has this to say about him in his bio:

We will keep you up to date. We see comments pouring in on the the local articles and his Facebook what a wonderful man and doctor he was. Nothing but praise...

He was even listed in the top 10 best Holistic doctors in his city to boot on Yelp.com
