Many private practices are structured as partnerships, but not all partnerships are the same. Dr. Brad Block is an ENT with ENT and Allergy Associates, the largest ENT practice in the country, and one where every last ENT doctor can become a partner. Brad describes how it works and why they do it this way on PracticeCare.

Bradley Block, MD, is a private practice otolaryngologist 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 creator of the Physician’s Guide to Doctoring Podcast. He is available as a keynote speaker on improving the patient experience, doctor-patient communication, and running office-hours efficiently.

Brad, or Dr. Block as his parents call him, went to med school at SUNY Buffalo and graduated with research honors. He then went on to his ENT residency at Georgetown. He enjoys spending time with his family, surfing (yes, there is surfing on Long Island), skiing (there is no skiing on Long Island), smoking meat, exercising, and finding any excuse to quote an 80s movie. “I’m not saying I’d build a summer home here, but the trees are actually quite lovely.”


In this episode Carl White and Bradley Block discuss:

  • The differences between a typical partnership structure and where Brad works
  • What’s better about Brad’s partnership structure
  • What’s not better (hint: nothing)
