Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

A pretty interesting person. When he was leading me into his office, he stopped to chat with someone for several minutes about things that didn’t seem very important. He then dropped his papers and just let them lay on the floor, which I found pretty odd. As any decent person would do, I knelt down and picked them up for him. There was no “thank you” or any kind of acknowledgement from him. A few minutes later he asked “you’re not from here, are you?,” even though I’ve spent a large majority

I was a patient with Dr. Pollowitz for about 20 years. I started seeing him at age 5 and only stopped because I moved out of state. He really cares about his patients and is truly an excellent doctor.
