Love Dr. Pollack. As a fellow athlete, he "gets" someone like me who wants to continue running and biking, while balancing my overall health concerns related to my very serious heart condition. He listens, he explains and has a sense of humor and humanity that is often absent in today's rushed medical system. Also, he's about my age. So, he's old enough to know something, yet young enough to stay in touch with the latest research and innovations. I actually enjoy my regular visits with him.

Dr. Pollack is a caring physician, kind person and highly skilled cardiologist. We trust him implicitly with all aspects of my mother’s care. Most importantly, he treats this 95 year old patient with respect, and keeps her in charge of her care. Thank you!

Dr. Pollack was very knowledgeable and compassionate at our visit. He even double checked the medication he wanted to put me on due to me being 6 months pregnant. He has very good bedside manner as well.

Dr. Pollack is all a doctor needs to be - compassionate, kind, a good listener, thorough, knowledgeable, patient. He has a calm demeanor and bedside manner with a bit of humor thrown in. I saw Dr. Pollack for a consult for elevated cholesterol and he spent at least 35 minutes with me. I would highly recommend him.
