BEWARE BEWARE, If you value your life do not let this guy do any work on you. My wife was operated on by Dr. Pollock 5 or six times over the past 2 years for circulation problems in her legs. If I had more than 789 characters to write I could give more in depth detail. Dr. Pollock was 0-6 getting positive results operating on my wife and one time actually caused a pseudoaneurysm in her arm from a surgery the previous day going through her arm to get to her groin. There were other surgery failures that I don't have space to describe but the last one he did was a femoral to femoral which left a large incision on the creases of leg near the abdominal area. The two incisons were constantly dripping, oozing etc. and when we went back to see Dr. Pollock at Premier Surgical two weeks later Doctor Pollock didn't seem concerned about the wounds caused by his incisions and had his nurse pack the wounds. Two weeks later my wife was rushed to the hospital and passed away from causes of sepsis.

Great listener. Never talked down to me. We decided treatment together, was not dictated to. I think he skipped the God 101 class.
