Dr. Leslie Block joined our team as Medical Director for Central Animal Hospital on Pinellas Point in May 2021. She was born and raised in Oklahoma. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Bellarmine University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and graduated with her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Oklahoma State University in 2001. She moved to Florida in May 2021 because she wanted to be closer to her parents who live here. She shares her home with Lily, her Portuguese Water Dog, and enjoys cooking, reading, swimming, boating, horseback riding, and traveling to new places. Dr. Block is a seasoned veterinarian experienced in abdominal and cardiac ultrasound, surgery, radiographic and CT imaging.
