I fell after surgery, an accident, and he got mad at me and wouldn't fix it then. He let it heal then wanted to redo the surgery and wouldn't do it for insurance money only and I couldn't afford it again. I've been in excruciating pain and can't wear shoes very long which has ruined my life. Then he fired me as a patient because he said he couldn't accept insurance only payment and I told him the doctor I worked for did that all of the time, so he could do that and I felt he wasn't being fair.

Awesome Doctor!!! He did two heel spur surgeries on each of my heels that involved extensive removal of my Achilles tendons. They required 2 anchors. Everything went great. He was great. I highly recommend him. His staff was great and efficient. Anyone that ran the NY Marathon and others is geared to getting you up and running within your capabilities. A lot depends on you....he will do his part. I hope he continues his practice in case my family or friends need him in the future.

I had a worst experience from a doctor's office. I paid for getting orthotics, paid additional money for rush order as I had to travel. Almost a week now and the manufacturer has not yet received the cast !. They are so busy that they cannot even follow up with UPS !!!. I found that the office people have messed up the UPS billing and UPS will not deliver. The response from the doctor's office - the supervisor is out of office - call back next week ! seriously ???. I am still waiting -- will up

So I took my 10 yr old daughter with an infected ingrown toe nail not to mention very painful. Dr. Pollak was great with her he had soooo much patients with her. I just loved how he was able to calm her down talk to her and do the procedure without her even noticing it.. we had such a great experience

This doctor just doesn't care anymore. Would not recommend anyone see this doctor. 60+ minute wait multiple times. Doesn't listen. Not helpful.

Saw Dr. Pollack w/left ankle pain. Looking at my feet, as I stood directly in front of him, he said I had fallen arches. I pointed out my high arches. He acknowledged them and took more x-rays, noticed that I have an extra bone in both ankles (they stick out in plain sight). He said he would do open ankle surgery to go in & shave off some of the lower bone on my left ankle, 6 weeks recovery in a hard cast. No arthroscopy. He told my doctor, but not me, that he would also be doing tendon surgery.
