Dr. Pollack was fine but his office staff is rude. The last time I was there I was doing a bunch of different doctor's appointments that day and despite the fact that the office was running behind, they tried to not allow me to leave the office (even though I had 45 min.) to go to another dr. in the same building. That was bad enough but to top it off, they have misbilled and refused to go back to my insurance about it. Since I now don't have that insurance, the carrier won't talk to me about it

Dr Pollack is very friendly and takes the time to listen to your questions and answer them. His diagnosis and treatment were spot on.
