I have nothing but praise for Dr. Pollard. I'd suffered 6 months of crippling nerve pain which was finally relieved after surgery.

Dr. Pollard took care of my unbelievable severe lower back pain. With a one day procedure I'm up and at after two weeks. It was a pleasure to deal with Dr. Pollard and his competent and professional staff.

I began experiencing pain in my back which radiated into my leg. An MRI showed a herniated disc with nerve compression. Dr. Pollard explained this to me in very clear and easy to understand terms. He spent considerable time with me and never pressured me towards making a decision but helped me understand surgery would be my best option. After surgery, I had immediate relief of my symptoms and am doing great! I highly recommend Dr. Pollard and his staff

Dr. Pollard operated on my lower back recently, I was in terrible pain and very frightened about the prospect of surgery. He has a wonderful bed side manner. Dr. Pollard spent a good deal of time with me - explaining my condition, why surgery was necessary, and even took the time to draw a picture for me to better answer some of my questions. He came to reassure me on the morning of my surgery and followed up with me after my operation, I am now pain free! I highly recommend Dr. Pollard!

My five year old daughter saw Dr. Pollard for a broken arm. Two weeks after the break he attempted to reset her arm and actually made things worse. Applied a cast which was the worst I'd ever seen. Ended up having to get her treated urgently at UVA Children's hospital to avoid her arm healing incorrectly. Seeing this doctor made this so much more traumatic for her than it needed to be. Going to UVA Children's Hospital was like night and day in terms of her treatment.

Dr Pollard operated on my lower back at end of June 2016. Was to be in hospital 1 night. After surgery I was not able to lift or use my left leg. Spent 2 1/2 months in Rehabilitation and never received an explanation from him. He came to my room once while I was highly drugged on narcotics and 1time while in skilled nursing. He was VERY short with me. Very poor bedside manner. Do not recommend him. It is now February, 2017 & still need physical therapy.
