What People Say About Dr. Barry Pollard, MD

I’ve been told by two other neurosurgeons I need surgery and no shots or PT will help. One of them told me I had less than a year to walk. This idiot told me I have a healthy back and not much wrong. Two MRIs and two neurosurgeons and two radiologist. That’s how many people disagree with him. Find someone who will actually look at your MRIs and take time. He was so bad that he wasn’t even looking at the right MRI until the nurse had to correct him.

Dr. Pollard actually hurt me. He did a lumbar laminectomy May, 2017 but missed a pinched nerve between 2 bulging discs. I have been in severe pain since then after 3 laminectomies and 3 hip injections plus 11 weeks total physical therapy. He had a chance to review 2 more MRIs and the results were the same. I finally went to 2 spinal surgeons OKC. They both found what Dr. Pollard missed and I am soon to have a spinal fusion with rods and screws. No, I would never recommend him to anyone.

After so many years of pain, I am finally pain free. Dr. Pollard made me feel very comfortable, gave me all the information I needed to help me to make the right decision for my health. When you are a competent surgeon and spend sufficient time with lots of patients you may have to wait to get in for your appointment - but the wait is worth it.

Please do not use this doctor once your insurance pays out he's done with you. I've seen 3 other neurosurgeons not one of them had good things to say about him.
