Terrible experience. Would not recommend him to anyone. Waited for an appointment for 3 weeks, went in 3 min. late. Gave all of my information to the receptionist. Waited...had another receptionist tell me he won't take me because I was late. Yes, I was 3 min. late, but had all of my paperwork filled in and was late due to the construction on Harlem and Sheridan. I would have been early. It was definitely out of my control. I waited for 3 weeks, came in completely prepared.

Dr. Pollina is a fantastic surgeon. He takes the time to explain everything in detail to you and is never bothered by any questions like most surgeons are.
