Very hard to make an appointment, no one ever answers the phone.

Recently saw Dr Pollack for a problem with my throat and thyroid. He felt it could go away on it's own or it could be addressed now. He asked me how I wanted to proceed. It's nice having a Dr that wants your imput on your own medical care and doesn't just tell you to do it their way. I opted to wait and the problem has resolved without unneeded medical care. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a thorough opinion and not just a dictation.

When a doctor asks "what do you want me to do?" after you ask for his opinion on a voice issue you've been experiencing, you get frustrated. This doctor is incompetent, has a dirty Office, and sent me home without even examining me. He told me to go to NY and find a "better doctor." Don't waste your time, money, or emotions.

I had an extremely effective visit with Dr Pollack. He seemed to ask questions no other doctor did and it helped get to the bottom of what was causing my sinus problems. I would tell you to try him if you are not getting help anywhere else.

Rushed thru appt. No answers to questions. Kept walking out while talking. wasn't listening at all. Passed off to other people. Dermal test inconclusive (the RUDE tech did it on my full sleeve tattooed arm and he couldn't read it when I told him to do it on my back instead). Was tested for things I didn't need. Told to go online to figure out my own results. A man named Matt told me I was lucky he was helping me.get an emergency appointment 2 wks later. Extremely unprofessional.

I met Dr. Pollack a number of years back when he cared for my father who had an extreme bloody nose due to cancer.. Where other doctors refused my dad's case, Dr. Pollack treated him with care and compassion. Dr. Pollack is responsible for extending my dad's life. Recently I required nasal surgery and Dr. Pollack was the only one I would consider. He not only did an excelelnt job but worked around my business schedule. Dr. Pollack is a blessing to all of his patients!
