This man also saved my father’s life. He was hanging on by a thread and was told by another heart surgeon that he would very likely die during the procedure. After letting that heart surgeon know the desire was for Dr. Pollock to operate, Dr. Pollock stepped in the room and reassured my father that he could help him. He replacdd his aortic valve and we are 5 days post surgery progressing very well. He is the also most compassionate man and is a gift to the field of medicine.

This man saved my father's life. Two hospitals and multiple doctors couldn't pinpoint what had happened to to my dad in the past year. Dr Pollock stepped up with his educated opinion, scheduled surgery less than a week later, and did six bypasses on my elderly father. I can not thank this man enough for taking the time to properly diagnose and treat my dad's heart problems.
