Incredible how efficient this doctor visit was. Extremely short waiting time. The staff was the friendliest and most helpful I have ever experienced. Even the medical assistant was prompt in returning phone calls related to my care. Dr. Pollak, himself, was thorough, patient and extremely professional. I read so many reviews with a negative experience on the internet. This group deserves as positive a review as there can be. They have it together administratively, professionally and medically! Glad my heart health is entrusted to this Dr. Pollak and his staff!

Dr. Pollak is the consummate professional. He takes the time to listen and clearly communicates the path to resolve issues. Via the Memorial My Chart system it is very easy to email him and his clear responses are very prompt.

Dr. Pollak and his office is, time and again, the best office visit experience a patient can have. I have been seeing Dr. Pollak for many years. Aside from his expertise and wonderful bedside manner, he is accessible on the "My Chart" app, and he always responds quickly (within a couple hours at most and there have been days I have literally sent 6 messages and I received a response from him to each of them). I wish all my doctors had these qualities.

I have seen Dr. Pollak in the past, and then did not see him for 10 years. I have seen other doctors, but to me, no other doctor compared to him. He is knowledgeable, cheerful and listens, friendly and kind. He does not ask for unnecessary tests (which drove me crazy about other doctors). His office staff is friendly and professional and I didn't sit there for hours, in and out, which is a big plus. I had been having some cardiac problems recently, but I knew that just seeing Dr. Pollak would give me piece of mind, which it did. What a fantastic doctor and what a great experience with his office and staff. I would highly recommend him! Thank you, Dr. Pollak!

Professional, knowledgeable and excellent “bedside” manner. Took the time to listen and gave full explanations to address my concerns. Left the office knowing the plan for diagnosing, what to expect with each test, and possible treatment options. His MA, Connie was extremely helpful and fully explained the processes for accessing my records, how to communicate w the office and how to manage the Holter Monitor. Every person I encounter in the office was helpful and accommodating. Thank you Dr. Pollak for a pleasant experience.

from the moment you enter the office you are greeted with a smile. Dr.Pollak's assistant,Connie, is amazing. My mom (who is 94 yrs old) is treated with respect and everyone is so gentle. Dr. Pollak makes you feel that you are very important to him and your care is of primary concern. He takes the time to ask questions and answers any and all of your concerns. I would recommend this office wholeheartedly.

They are so much better than the cardiologist I used to go to, where I would wait for hours past my appointment time. I had waited too long to make the change. Now I remember what it was like to see a professional.

Highly recommended by his peers in other medical fields. I found him to be thorough, caring and informative. He was well prepared, reviewed all the hospital tests, performed his own EKG and BP tests and shared the results and prognosis in a concise and clear manner. Answered all questions and left me feeling I was in excellent hands.

I needed a well rounded cardiologist to discuss my heart history and cardiac tests i had taken. Dr Pollak patiently listened and thoroughly explained the test results and my concerns. I was not rushed or dismissed. He was not judgemental and offered good advice and counsel. Office staff was friendly and efficient.

Dr. Wayne Pollack has always been very straightforward and given options to be considered for whatever the issue happens to be at the time. He will answer any questions I ask without regard to how unimportant it may be. A quality many doctors do not have today. I appreciate his honesty and his attitude.
