I went to see Dr. Pollock regarding a suspected heart condition. His exam revealed that my heart was fine, but that it appeared I had a problem with my lungs. He immediately scheduled an appointment with a pulmonologist with whom I am now under care. Dr. Pollock is insightful, dedicated and down to earth. I highly recommend him.

If not for Dr.Pollock I would not be here to write this review. Without a doubt the one medical person who makes sense. Never hurries you, appointment times close to near perfect for being on time. I have very much respect for him and always value his advise and opinion. The office staff has always shown respect for me and I have always found them to be pleasant.

Dr Pollock has been my cardiologist for 23 years. He has always been available to me, even when he is out of town; I always receive a phone call from him. Obviously, I trust him with my life and I would highly recommend him to any person with a heart problem!! He's not just my doctor, he is a close friend!!

Secretary is very unprofessional and rude! It makes you never want to come back to this office. Dr. Pollack was informative but his so called secretary Horrible individual! I will never go back there and I don't recommend this office unless you want to be treated Rude! I was about to go to jail she is the worst secretary I have ever encountered and I was a new patient. I spoke with the office Manager and got the impression that they have heard this before possibly with this Rude individual!!!!
