Patient Comments (8)
in Seekonk, MA |
After approximately 1 year of treatment I was eliminated from treatment by the doctor. Due to a failure of a screening test. Be careful to sign any documents. They may and will be held against you. Zero tolerance policy is not mitigated by any sense of compassion or empathy. Her policies are aimed at protection of the practice but lack any mechanisms that provide for legitimate problems. I suffered undue stress and anxiety due to this. Unless her policies are amended I cannot recommend her.

I made sure when I scheduled my appointment that Dr. Pollan was willing to work with my specific pain conditions. The person on the phone put me on hold to double check. At my appointment, Dr. Pollan told me that my condition did not cause the kind of pain that I was experiencing, that I was drug seeking, and that I should have checked first. She then implied that I was lying, or hadn't asked correctly when I told her that I had checked.

I would not give any stars if possible. Horrible doctor, no bedside manner, gruff, know it all, it is her way or no way. Pumps you up with drugs to keep you coming back over and over again even when it does not help.
in Cumberlane, RI |
I was in terrible pain when I first went to Dr. Pollan and she helped me so much. I was very surprised by the negative comments about her. I had a very good experience.
in North Attleboro, MA |
i have had numerous problems with pain in my back, feet, and shoulder for the past 35 years. the pain the last 10 years has been debilitating. i have consulted with many, many, surgeons, PCP's, and pain specialists over the years, so i think i can speak from experience. NEVER have i encountered a so-called pain MD that is so uninformed, bombastic, and close-minded. stay as far away from this physician as possible. you would be better off just maintaining a piece of mind with aspirin!

She was traumatically horrid with me. Her attitude exuded disbelief. Her responses to my questions were inadequate. Because of her unfulfilled promises and behavior, I've become even more terrified of Massachusetts Doctors.
The girls in the office are awsome, very friendly and easy to talk to. The doctor on the other hand always seems to have wokeing up on the wrong of the bed. Very untrusting and thinks that your lieing all the time. She makes you feel like your being questioned by the police and doesn't believe anything you're telling her.
She's very thorough and caring and has a nice bed-side manner which is the first thing I look for in a doctor
