Dr. Pollard always fights for her patients. The wait time is a little long. When my mother was sick in the hospital and coding she went to see me first before she went to the office. My mother is with me today because of her. If you are willing to wait. She will go above and beyond for you.

Review for Albert Vera

Terrible office management. We waited 4 hours and finally decided to leave. We decided that this poor attitude and lack of respect towards patients would most definitely reflect their attitude towards surgery. I know my time is not nearly as valuable as some but that was 4 hours lost for good.

Review for Dr. Pollard

Dr. Salloum’s social skills are extremely limited. Does he know his stuff? I’m sure he does, but explaining it is forced, factual, and limited in scope. It’s a disconcerting trait in a career that statistically deals with death and dying more more often than the living and thriving.

Sue Jun 11 2020

Review for Dr. Salloum

upfront and professional, have been seeing him for several years. He is open to discussion and straight forward with his answers which I appreciate. would give him a strong recommendation to anyone.
