Excessive over billing! No wonder insurance rates are so high. I went twice to the office. Billed over $800.00!!! Receive an injection and a nerve check on the second visit. Nothing worth the bill received. Will refuse to pay.

Dr. Pollack was fantastic!! The staff is A++++++ and they are so friendly. When I call to schedule appointments, the staff does a great job fitting me in. I see Dr. Pollack for prolotherapy and they have changed my life. Dr. Pollack helped me avoid knee surgery. I highly recommend him.

Pro: convenient location, easy to get appointment Con: IME physician (works for insurance and employers, not patient), long wait time, office dirty and lighting very harsh for those with migraines, he didn't really listen to me or address my needs, he said I didn't have a condition which was previously diagnosed (and I had surgery to fix), he pushed injections that are not covered by insurance (injections not proven to work), he could not tell me the cost of his follow up office visits

I went to Dr Pollack with my Husband. He had a head in a work accident. He fell 24 feet into a hole, and hit his head on a shield at the bottom. He received a skull fracture, and bleeding of the brain. After he got out of the Neuro Intensive care that he was in for 13 days, he needed to see a Neurologist. This Doctor was awesome, and helped my Husband a lot, but said that my Husband is disabled. In 10 minutes Dr Pollock said that he was 100% OK. He Lied. I live with my Husband. He IS DISABLED!!!
