Dr. Kenneth Bock
We often begin where conventional practitioners leave off — at the dead ends or the unanswered questions. We listen. We think. We ask questions. We listen some more. Then we get to work and we are relentless in our pursuit of the answers. We are not satisfied until we have designed a treatment plan that addresses the factors that contribute to the development of these chronic conditions.
— Kenneth Bock, MD
Dr. Kenneth Bock has appeared as a guest on many TV programs including Good Morning America, Fox and Friends, and The CBS Early Show.

Our Only Regret Is We Didn’t Find Your Practice Sooner
“After two years of dealing with our son’s unpredictable symptoms, consulting with many doctors, and being given a variety of incorrect diagnoses, we were frustrated and anxious about his future. Then an acquaintance recommended the “medical detectives” at Bock Integrative Medicine. From the start, Dr. Bock’s compassion and knowledge of complex conditions made us confident that he could help. He took the time to listen, combining what he learned about our son’s background with research-based science to develop a diagnosis and treatment plan that improved our son’s well being. Our only regret is that we didn’t consult with the wonderful team of experts at Bock Integrative Medicine sooner.”
