Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Went in for a consultation for pediatric fillings, gave the office all my insurance information which they made copies of. Went back several weeks later for the work to be completed. After fillings were completed before leaving I was told what my portion was to pay and paid in full on the spot. Several months later I received an incoice for additional paymernt. When I contacted Delta Dental Insurance they said the dentist office did not submit for payment on time and now the dental office is trying to make me pay for their mistake in filing in a timely manor. We paid exactly what we where told before leaving the office. Not our fault for their office mistakes.

I happen to have to call Dr. Pollina on Saturday and after hours and he called me back. Everytime I showed up on time my kids were seen within acceptable time frame. I am happy with dr. Pollina and the care we get.

Because if we are not, we are going to leave and reschedule" They reiterate, "yes, we are. Don't worry about it." When the proceed to get routine services that are listed as "100% covered" per our plan. Two weeks later, we get a bill. We suffer on hold with Delta and find out, "NO he is not part of our network." I call for clarification. The billing manager at his office tells us, "sorry, we are not in your Delta network, so you are going to have to pay this bill which is over $300." Furious, I remind her of our convo on the day of service. No luck. They want our money and we feel th

Neglegent, conceded and careless. Both Dr. Pollina and his staff.
