I have a condition called Centralized Intractable Pain that leaves me in excruciating pain 24/7 and have seen approximately 15 different doctors in the last 2-1/2 years. I went in feeling unsure since I've supposedly seen the top people in the Midwest, I couldn't have been more wrong and was pleasantly surprised. Dr. Pollina is a great listener, humble and genuinely concerned. I'd lost a lot of faith in the medical community, Dr. Pollina is among the few doctors I trust and helped me regain hope

Dr is very caring and takes time to listen to patient instead of overtalking to you like some drs do.

Dr. Pollina was very understanding and sincere. He took the time to understand my pain and together we planned a course of action. After my surgery, we discussed a plan to lower my medication and eliminate it completely. Everything went well and I am free of all pain medication. Thank you Dr. Pollina.
in Roseville, MI |
Dr Pollina was very empathetic at first. After a couple months he suggested injections. I had a caudal injection which actually caused intolerable pain that lasted for 4-5 days.Following that he convinced me to get a facet joint injection with the same result. I had 3 more injections hoping that it would eventually ease the pain. One day I noticed how much he was charging my insurance-ASTRONOMICAL! The injections did not help at all. I then found out spinal injections are rarely effective.
