It is not a violation of HIPAA to block a patient on social media. The only way this could be a HIPAA violation is if the health care provider blocked them and then posted that the reason they were blocked was because of a health condition in which the health care provider names in a public or semi-public setting. Otherwise, this would not be a HIPAA violation.
