Dr. Pollock is a true professional. He saved my fathers life and left his home late at night in the middle of his sleep to save yet another life. Dr. Pollock not only did his job, but comforted me and explained his procedure and was successful in helping my dad see another day. With his wisdom, experience, and compassion; he is a cardiologist with the right approach and the utmost respect. After 25 years of dealing with highly intelligent doctors, he is one of the best in his field and it shows

Despite my very minor symptoms, he saved my life in 2012. In a cath lab procedure he inserted 4 stents in the arteries serving my heart, one of which, the "widowmaker" was 90 percent blocked. I've been seeing him since for followups. I would trust him with my life again anytime.

In my opinion my reception at your office was dismissive, discourteous and rude. The doctor refused to hear my concerns. My treatment was hurtful, unprofessional and wrong. I would never recommend Dr. Pollock or his practice to any family or friends.

Dr Pollock saw me on short notice at the behest of my primary care. He spent 30 minutes with me and answered all my questions clearly and with patience. He indicated a course of treatment and a number of lifestyle changes to treat persistent AFIB with followup within 6 weeks. It has been over 8 weeks and I cannot get an appointment sooner than the end of next month because he is "not in the facility much". Guess I need a new cardiologist who is available more than once a calendar quarter.
