Care Philosophy

I take a holistic approach to the treatment of patients. Many of the conditions I see are related to a number of factors including autoimmune issues, previous surgery, medications, and diet. Only by taking all of these into consideration can one fully address the patient's needs.

My eyesight is better than ever, it's a great feeling not having the need to wear glasses or contact lenses any more. My eyesight now is very important, especially for my career field. Thank you very much to Dr. Polack and his staff for the excellent work.

I have MS. about 6 months ago I had cataracts removed. My eye flared up and became painful. When I went back to Dr. Pollack he examined me and suggested that I go gluten free. I didn't take his advice and my eye did not improve. When I returned once agin he asked if I had gone gluten free. I admitted that I hadn't He insisted it would help so from hat day on I went gluten free. After a short while my eye completely healed. I should have listened to him on day one! Dr. pollack knows his stuff!
Thank you for sharing your experience!

Dr Polack is professional, friendly & knowledgeable. He explained each set as he performed my cataract surgery. Dr Polack personally called to check on me that evening! His staff from front desk to surgical assistants are very professional & friendly. I would give him 10+ stars if I could. He is very thorough. I highly recommend him and would Not consider using another doctor! Thank you Dr Polack for giving my 20/20 vision back. This was a painless experience.

Dr Polack put me immediately at ease with his excellent examination and explanation of the surgical procedure I was interested in. I felt confident to go ahead with the surgery and not at all apprehensive about the outcome.

Dr. Polack is a gifted and talented eye surgeon with an incredible amount of experience which allows him to accurately assess a patient's condition and decide how it should be treated. I was diagnosed with Fuchs Dystrophy. Dr. Polack was very careful to make sure every situation was considered before undertaking a partial corneal transplant known as DSEK. My vision is now better than it has been in years. Thank you Dr. Polack!
in The Villages, FL |
Very caring, professional, honest and one great surgeon. My cataracts were way past ready to be operated on. In the 4+ range of 'ripeness'. Dr Polack operated and restored my sight. I was legally blind and at my last checkup was at 20/25 combined vision. I would recommend Dr Polack and his support staff to anyone needing excellent eye care.
in Ocala, FL |
It was such a pleasant surprise to get a personal phone call from Dr. Polack the evening after my surgery. Such a caring and competent physician. I highly recommend him.
