Show Notes

We all recognize that being a dad in today's world is very different when compared to when our parents were our age.  But how much has that changed for us as physicians as well?

Today I get to speak with Dr Brad Block.  We discuss dad life as doctors, how gender roles have changed our job at home as dads, and generally just have a great time joking around.  Tis is definitely an episode you don't want to miss!

Bradley Block, MD, is an otolaryngologist – head and neck surgeon on Long Island, New York, where he lives with his wife and three young sons. He is a partner at ENT and Allergy Associates and he created the Physician’s Guide to Doctoring Podcast. It is a scintillating and engaging podcast, where he interviews physician and non-physician experts to help teach us what we should have been learning while we were busy memorizing Kreb’s Cycle. It is a practical guide for practicing physicians, physicians-in-training and all allied health professionals. Topics range from personal finance to politics to improving interactions with patients to what every doctor should know about different specialties. You can find him at and on Twitter and rarely on Instagram @physiciansguide. You can’t find him on TikTok, Snapchat, Etsy or on Pinterest and you probably never will.

He went to med school at SUNY Buffalo and graduated with research honors and went on to residency at Georgetown. He enjoys surfing (yes, there is surfing on Long Island), skiing (there is no skiing on Long Island), smoking meat, exercising, throwing his sons across the pool and finding any excuse to quote an 80s movie.
